I had low 70’s (in math), and ended up with high 80’s…with the help, I noticed I am not bad at math, I just needed different ways to look at it. At my homeschool, I couldn’t ask certain questions, but people here always explain it until you fully get it. That helped me grow as a person.

My son is a graduate of your program (2019-2020) and currently a top student in his Laurier co-op BBA program. He greatly benefited from the skills developed at Uchenna. His experience at Uchenna was back in the day when you had only a fraction of the resources that you do today. To prospective students/families: take advantage of this opportunity. It seems like the program is vastly improved… and it was already an amazing program years ago. Your student will definitely develop skills that will benefit them years later… a wise investment in their future.


Thanks so much Uchenna Academy.  My son really enjoyed you as teachers. Will keep in touch – he may still need to catch up on a couple of courses & the flexibility you offer works well for him.


I strongly recommend Uchenna Academy.  My teacher was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic & dedicated to her profession as well as the students she taught.  She provided a welcoming & inclusive environment.  In addition, she was very flexible & adapted her teaching methods and made accommodations with the students in mind.

My (university) math course is super easy, essentially review of functions and calculus, you prepared me well! I received 89% in my first year calculus course, I am happy with it!

I began my teaching career at Uchenna Academy after graduating from teacher’s college.  It was at Uchenna that I was able to gain valuable experience in course development and small-group teaching, in a supportive and encouraging professional environment.

My son was quite unimpressed about the tutoring piece when we first signed up, but he has come to look forward to those sessions. They make him feel like he can be successful. Incredibly unlike him to ask for or accept help but you have been so supportive that he feels you both are people he can go to. I cannot thank you enough. Much of his difficulty with schoolwork relates to his relationship (or lack thereof) with his teachers. You have been encouraging, fair, clear in your expectations, positive and sensitive in your approach and he has benefited greatly. Thank you.


Thank you so much for everything. I really can’t begin to explain how much you have changed me and helped my academic career

Uchenna Academy is a Prep School located in Toronto’s Corso Italia and Dovercourt districts. We prepare middle and high school students for University through a STEAM and Sport learning approach.

Uchenna Academy Prep School STEAM Educational Approach

We specialize in small class sizes of no more than 10 students. The student to teacher ratio is kept at 10:1 or below each term allowing teachers to provide more one on one instruction.

At our Prep School, students are encouraged to openly converse with our teachers. Subject matter is presented in culturally diverse ways of knowing and we cater to various learning styles.

Our curriculum is a Co-ed academic STEAM based learning format and we couple academics with sport for development for our students.

Our Prep School is open to students of diverse ethnicity, religion, gender, and ability, in grade 6-12. We offer in-person, online and blended learning models. These learning models offer Uchenna Academy High School students flexible avenues towards earning their Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD).

We also offer a fifth year or Post Graduate option for those seeking a gap year after completing high school to refine their academics, prep for SATs and/or further their recruitment.

In partnership with the BallMatics Academy, our Prep School specializes in providing student-athletes from the Greater Toronto Area, Canada and the world with outstanding educational, athletic training and exposure opportunities in the competitive Prep Basketball environment.

Prep School student-athletes grade 9 to 12 and Post Grad. can train for a minimum 3 hours per day weekly. This rigorous training and academic regimen, prepares students for our competitive game schedule. At least 50% of our games are played in elite showcase events in the United States.

Our blended learning model allows student-athletes to study while competing never missing a class due to travel.

Our Junior Basketball Development program is the foundation of our program engaging youth from grade 6 to 10 with a passion for basketball by providing high level of instruction, repetition, and competition.

Parents and students seeking a Basketball Prep School in downtown Toronto will be hard pressed to find one more comprehensive than Uchenna Academy.
