ebaad198-2.jpg (4985 bytes)VIA (Victoria International Academy) is a private English language school in Victoria, BC, Canada. It opened in 2002 with clear goals: to provide a positive learning environment with small classes taught by TESL Canada-certified and experienced teachers. In 2005 the VIA TESL Diploma Program received recognition from TESL Canada. The full-time program led to a part-time program.

VIA is located in Victoria, Canada's warmest city, surrounded by beautiful nature, in a safe environment, with warm and welcoming homestays. Summers are warm, winters are not too cold. Named "The Garden City", spring brings cherry blossoms, tulips, and flowers of every kind throughout the city. Victoria enjoys the benefits of smaller cities, such as safety, opportunities to speak with Canadians, and natural beauty. Yet, it also has big city advantages, such as sophisticated transportation services, world-class entertainement and culture, such as the Royal British Columbia Musuem, The Royal Theatre, Butchart Gardens, and many more.

VIA is also an iBT TOEFL and TOEIC Test Centre; and it also provides special programs, such as ESL + Music, and Group and Youth Programs (designed for International ESL students ages up to 18).

Small classes, access to teachers inside and outside the classroom, support from staff to help with everything from visas to phone bills, and a friendly yet focused teaching style define VIA as a unique private English school. Most programs can be started any Monday, and in addition to regular language instruction, VIA is authorized to issue Letters of Acceptance for students wishing to study and gain work experience in an English-speaking environment. VIA has relationships with a large number of companies in Victoria and works closely with them to ensure the experience for both the student and the company is positive (co-op programs).
