Year Of Foundation


Some History

Académie Ste-Cécile Academy of Music Inc. (“the Académie”) opened in 1979 as a corporation dedicated to teaching the arts of music and dance to individuals of all ages and proficiencies. In January 1980, the Académie expanded by opening the Ste-Cécile Child Enrichment Centre: a nursery school, licensed by the Ministry of Community and Social Services, dedicated to nurturing the love of music and dance in children aged 2 to 5 years old inclusive. One year later, a third level was added to the Académie’s Tecumseh location. This expansion included the addition of more music studios as well as the John Paul Recital Hall in which a Bösendorfer Concert Grand Piano is housed. The Académie further expanded in 1984 when a second location was built in South Windsor.

    ASCIS is associated with the University of Windsor.  Students have access to University library resources, laboratories and computer services including the “on line” mode.  In addition, professors from the University are welcomed to teach and advise at the Académie.

    Elementary School

    At the Elementary level, Académie Ste-Cécile International School provides a strong academic curriculum centered on the acronym STREAM (Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Arts and Music). Daily classes in English, Mathematics and French form the basis for a rigorous academic program. Science and Social Studies are also part of the core curriculum, which is enriched with twice-weekly classes in Computer Science, Physical Education, Vocal and Instrumental Music, Visual Art, Drama and Mandarin. Religion or Ethic classes are also part of the weekly instructional programme. Notably, ASCIS’ dedicated computer curriculum focuses on web design, coding, robotics and keyboarding skills.

    ASCIS students are supported by a strong team of highly qualified classroom teachers. In Grades 5-8, students enjoy a full-time rotary curriculum. This means that ASCIS elementary students are taught in subject-specific classrooms by knowledgeable teachers who are experts in their subject areas. A low pupil-teacher ratio of 16 or less students per class offers students greater opportunities for direct instruction as well as leading discussions and group activities.

    Formal report cards are issued three times a year, and students receive further progress reports at the end of September. Students in Grades 4 to 8 also are required to write final “big tests” at the end of June. This assessment system helps ASCIS students to remain focused and on task right to the very end of the school year. It also prepares them for final exams, which are mandatory in high school.
