Arts and Science Academy of Canada – ASAC – is the fuel that ignites creativity and imagination in children. Since it open its doors in 2004, ASAC has been empowering young (and very young!) artists from around the world through education, training, and professional opportunities.
The inspiration for ASAC came from the creative mind of Ms. Victoria Mironova – the artistic director and founder of Victoria Ballet Company and Victoria International Ballet Academy. In her drive to support classical and traditional arts in the community Ms. Mironova founded the company, and then the school, in order to raise new generations of international talent.
Since then ASAC has evolved into a full-fledged private school with a dedicated academic program that supports the professional art programs. The Academy has continued its expansion, first with the addition of a professional Fine Arts school and then with the opening of its Music and Vocal schools.
Each department of the Academy is led by talented educators who are also active professionals in their fields. The curriculum is carefully constructed to reflect the present and near future trends of each area of focus.
Arts and Science Academy of Canada was founded on the mandate of inspiring strength and resilience in all students. Our educational philosophy equally values students’ character, academic, and artistic development. Our nurturing environment helps students naturally develop discipline, self-management, and responsibility. Discipline and self-management are the foundations of confidence and success. Success is not achieved by chance; rather, it is built through dedication, determination, and hard-work. Our system of success goals focuses on constructing long-term targets that involve multiple steps that teach students how to overcome setbacks.
ASAC students learn how to turn constructive criticism and peer-feedback into steps on the road towards their success goals. We show students that success is consistently achieved through effort, strategy, and perseverance.
As students reach their goals, they learn that their success is a reward for what they had accomplished, and they are motivated to work even harder for their next goal. This principle is the foundation for our academic and artistic programs, and is the reason why our students are successful, and continue to succeed after they leave ASAC.
