A Message From our Director:

       Welcome to Canada TEMS Academy: the private school that is dedicated to making high quality education comprehensible to every student. At TEMS, our focus is to manage the education of our students through innovative and inclusive teaching methods that take into consideration student learning styles, current life situations, and future goals. We find success in our students’ achievements and work hard to make sure every TEMS student is able to reach their academic goals.
       In a growing, exciting region like Waterloo, we are lucky to be able to offer smaller class sizes and individualized attention during class, which are necessary for a successful education that goes beyond learning to true understanding. Too often students are left behind in classes or made to feel as if they cannot achieve beyond the standard. At TEMS, we believe that every student is capable of being at the top of the class, and we give them the chance to be there. TEMS Academy is more than a credit school; we are a total education management service, and we are excited to help you achieve excellence.
