All teachers at our school have a Master's degree or higher qualifications, with Ontario Teaching Certificates and extensive teaching experience.

All Year Round Enrollment
MIA operates on a tri-semester system, which enables our students to register all year round with the flexible timetable. The semesters start in September, January, and April. In addition, to accommodate the special needs of certain students who wish to take additional courses, McDonald also offers the Summer School Program, with a semester beginning in July and one in August.
Our North York Campus offers even more flexibility with their fast track program. Semesters there start every 2 months, year round.
Small classes mean more personal attention from the teachers, which provides students with a better educational environment and hence more chances for success.
Our small classes afford opportunities for the respect and recognition of student achievement. We try to size our class within the range of 15-25 students, which allows more time for students to interact and communicate in the class, and to develop independent reasoning, and creative thinking skills.
