The THINNOX learning experience is significantly different from what is offered at other educational institutions.
THINNOX provides 110 hours of TED workshops annually to every student over and above the regular programming. This unique, immersive, learning by doing method, offers endless opportunities for students interested in making an early start at building the foundations and achieving progressive excellence in the fields of Technology, Engineering and Design, even as they pursue their Ontario Secondary School Diploma. The involved and empathetic guidance counselling process, the feedback based program personalization process combined with systematic reporting mechanism delivers proven results for students, both, in and out of class rooms.
Founded in 2006, more than 3000 students have graduated from the THINNOX Academy over the past decade. Operating from two campuses in Mississauga, THINNOX caters to two different education needs of K-12 students aspiring high achieving careers in Technology, Education and Design (TED). The Glen Erin Campus offers part-time (TED) enrichment programs, whereas the Lakeshore Campus offers full-time as well as part-time TED Immersion High School programs in private and semi-private delivery formats. Both campuses offer programs round the year including Summer Camps and Summer School.
THINNOX campuses are carefully designed to ensure a friendly, student-centred, engaging atmosphere geared to small set of students. Class sizes range from 6 to 10 students. Small class sizes allow our instructors and counsellors to personally mentor every student and tailor the programming to specific requirements and interests of the student. The course offerings within a program is broad and delivery formats are as diverse as needs. The combination of personalized programming along with involved mentorship and keen career focus help our students achieve much more than what they think is possible.
THINNOX is ministry inspected and adheres to all provincial standards, including the provision of an Ontario Provincial Report Card and official transcripts to post-secondary institutions.
