The SCI story.


Since 2009 we have been guiding youth to develop the best they have to give: academically, personally and to others. Education reaches far beyond the classroom and so do we. Canada culture exchanges, Cambodia volunteer work, local community participation. All in a dynamic English environment. SCI's goal remains in "Developing youth potential..."

Our Team

Our Reading Seeds English program encourages students to become avid readers of English, in a stimulating and challenging team environment. SCI Teachers work hard to embrace the 21st century skills sets that youth will encounter in their journey through education, the world of work and society. In addition to core learning subjects, students must acquire the ability to be lifelong learners; no small task.

This includes the skills outlined by the Framework for 21st Century Learning*. SCI programming includes learning and innovation skills, digital literacy training, and opportunities through our volunteer network for career and life skills training.  Call us to learn how we can invest in your child's future: 064-723-0579.
