About Us

Opus Academy is a leading provider of high quality after-school enrichment education in the lower mainland of Vancouver. Opus Academy was founded to serve the growing need of enrichment and gifted education for high aptitude students of all ages and skill levels.

We provide a rewarding learning experience in the breadth and depth of our diverse course offerings which include Education Program for Gifted Youth (EPGY), courses developed by Stanford University, Opus Public Speaking and Debate, Opus Speech Arts and Drama, Opus Critical Reading & Writing, Advanced Placement Courses, Academic Subject Enrichment and Classical Music Programs. Our comprehensive services include university admissions counselling, private school admissions counselling and educational planning.

Opus students have won a number of awards as well as high placement in various universally recognized examinations, competitions and festivals. We continue to expand our course offerings. Most importantly, our students deepen their love of learning, face challenges and excel in their work through increased confidence and motivation. Our students are not only better prepared in class, but also better prepared for post-secondary education in North America and elsewhere in the world.

At Opus Academy, we understand that a child’s education is one of the most important investments that parents will ever make. Since we consider education to be a process that extends beyond the school walls and school hours, we recognize the importance of the role of parents within the process of education. As such, we are committed to building partnerships with parents through our collaborative approach to student achievement.

 

Mission

We strive to develop and motivate high aptitude students to reach their full potential by providing enriched and accelerated learning in core academic subjects, communication arts (Public Speaking and Debate, Speech and Drama) and music, through unique and specialized education programs taught by inspiring teachers using advanced technology. Our goal is to increase students’ confidence, empowering them to become competent thinkers and leaders of the future.

Through our comprehensive Counselling Services, we help students and families navigate the complex university admissions process or the private school admissions process by providing personalized services to meet student’s individual needs and by finding the best fit institution based on student’s individual strengths and talents.
