Our Promise, Your Success

Year after year, Columbia graduates receive close to $2 million in scholarships and gain admission to some of the world's top universities. Since 1979, through our ASEP-Total Care Education System®, students have been nurtured to become strong leaders, trained to develop their potential and they have ultimately leaped higher than they thought possible. Our commitment to our students' academic and personal achievement is evident: Students strive for success; Columbia maximizes their potential to achieve it!


Maximizing Students' Potential

Total Learning – helping students achieve higher success than they thought possible. Columbia's ASEP approach takes full advantage of the flexibility of Ontario's education system, customizing students' study programs to provide a healthy balance of learning and fun beginning on day one. 3 Areas of ASEP's Balanced Education


Education Beyond Academics & Exams

We implement innovative and interactive teaching styles in the classroom to develop students’ skills in:
  • Critical thinking
  • Creative thinking
  • Research and inquiry
  • Organization and presentation
  • Teamwork
We believe that learning should not be restricted to the classroom. Our education involves:
  • Supplementing in-class learning with field trips and workshops

We explore and develop students hidden passions by offering many courses in diverse areas:
  • Music
  • Arts
  • Drama

Balanced Assessment of Performance

We believe students should enjoy a balanced lifestyle at school and in residence. At Columbia, final marks for most courses are determined equally by:
  • Coursework
  • Test marks
  • Final Assessments
