Heritage International School

Heritage School of the Arts is a private Christian school for grades 1 through 12 located in Toronto, Ontario. HSA is organized into the Elementary School (Grades 1-6), the Junior High School (Grades 7-8) and High School (Grades 9-12). We provide a strong academic curriculum as well as Arts programs in Visual Arts, Drama (Musical Theatre), Music (Band, Orchestra), Physical Education, and extra-curricular program. We also give an environment that is friendly and conducive to learning for individuals of all ages.

At Heritage School of the Arts, we offer four English as a Second Language (ESL) programs to accommodate individuals from many different English backgrounds.  Each of the programs aims to develop four essential skills, such as listening, reading, speaking, and writing.

International Students and adults who are visiting Canada may enroll in a six-month General ESL program.    This is open for students who wish to pursue short-term English studies in Canada.  This program will provide students with an opportunity to improve English proficiency, learn about the academic culture of a Canadian classroom, and study in a diverse classroom with peers from all over the world.  Students have the option to focus their studies in one the four core areas (listening, reading, speaking, and writing).

Adult ESL ProgramL

Test Preparation is a course designed for students taking the  IELTS, CELPIP examinations.  These courses will not only develop the four essential English skills, but it will also prepare students as they will learn test-taking strategies when given a time constraint.  

After-school ESL Program is a part of our after-school program that is intended for students who are regular students in Canada who need support in their studies, whether it be advancing in their studies, or assistance in their homework, presentation skills, or in their ability to perform the four essential English skills.

Bridge ESL is a three to six month (depending on students’ level) intensive course available for individuals who have limited English skills.  This may include individuals who have arrived in Canada and are yet to be familiar with English and for those who wish to develop more knowledge and confidence in their English capabilities for academic, professional, and/or personal development reasons.  This course acts as a “Pre-class” for those who desire teaching prior to entering classes.
