CIA is affiliated with several local groups that can provide additional support services for students, either on campus, or nearby. These supports are available for students to access outside of school hours, and on occasion during their lunch hour. These courses are available for students who wish to expand their understanding or require additional assistance outside of the classroom setting.

CIA can coordinate one-on-one or group tutoring for students. These services can be scheduled during the day or immediately following school. These services are offered to ensure that all student have the opportunity to access the assistance they require and continue to strive for excellence.  

Tutoring is available for every subject in the Alberta High School curriculum, and for every course offered at CIA. Contact a member of our team (hyperlink to contact us) for further information about Tutoring Services and how to schedule them. 


Upgrading is an option for students who have completed certain courses in their home countries that correspond to the Canadian equivalent course. Upgrading is also an option for individuals who have completed courses but require a higher grade to pass, or qualify for entrance into a Canadian post-secondary institution. Typically, students who enroll in an upgrading program are over 18 years of age. 


The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is a test of English language proficiency. It is designed to determine the level of English language ability of non-native speakers who intend to study or work in Canada. It tests four abilities – listening, reading, writing and speaking. Increasingly high IELTS scores are required to obtain work, study permits, or Permanent Residence in Canada. CIA focuses its preparatory courses on teaching students effective methods to advance language skills quickly in all categories.
