Launch of Braemar Online Academy, our new way to learn.

We are proud to announce the launch of the Braemar Online Academy, a collaboration between two Toronto educational institutions with over a century of combined experience delivering the Ontario Secondary School Diploma and helping students succeed in Canadian colleges and universities.

The key consortium members have been preparing for the launch of Braemar Online Academy since mid-2019. Hybrid Education Technologies was the spark that brought them together. One partner, TVO ILC and the other, Braemar College.

Drawing on that long tradition, Braemar College contributes its expertise in credential assessment, guidance and study plan creation, as well as essential postsecondary application support, taking particular advantage of its industry-leading pathway agreements with top Canadian colleges and universities. Combining the rich online programming of TVO ILC, Braemar College and its partners, the Braemar Online Academy offers students all across the globe an innovative end-to-end online pathway into leading Canadian postsecondary institutions.

How would you describe your time at Braemar?

Braemar was definitely challenging, but the teachers helped me succeed, and I made lots of friends.

What do you think of studying in Canada?

It has been fun, adventurous. It’s been a lot of hard work, definitely, but you got to work hard to get where you want to be.

What are you plans for the future?

I want to get my B.A. degree and then go to law school. And I guess just make my parents proud.

What advice would you have for other International students about to come to Canada?

Being an international student is not easy. You have to work hard, make sure you do your best, and leave the rest “to the man upstairs”.

Who is your role model?

Actually I have two: my mom and Nelson Mandela. My mom worked her way to top, she is so nice, she never gives up on you. And Nelson Mandela also did a lot for people and never gave up.
