The Education Academy (T.E.A.) at St. Aidan began as a volunteer-based program in 2008. Their main focus was, and still is to build the character of children. This year’s primary focus is French,  since Canada is a bilingual country. The program has grown each year by word of mouth alone, with no advertising, resulting in children coming all the way from Etobicoke and Whitby.

The organization’s target age range is from Junior kindergarten to Grade 8. They keep the program as cheap as possible, so it will be accessible to everyone. The goal of the organization is to motivate the campers, and let them have a safe and fun experience throughout the summer.

All T.E.A. programs live by what they call their T.O.P. philosophy, which stands for Teachers LOves Pupils. T.E.A. is known for creating a caring community, and a homey atmosphere for all of it pupils.
