Aspire Community Scholars

Providing tutoring scholarships to students in kindergarten through grade twelve within the Greater Vancouver area.

About Us

Aspire Community Scholars is a new program offered by Aspire Learning Academy that is working to provide FREE academic support to children and youth in Greater Vancouver. We believe that a quality education is a fundamental human right and should be available to all, regardless of financial circumstances. Today’s competitive reality is that many students supplement their basic education with private academic coaching and tutoring.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide students, who otherwise would not have access to private academic coaching and tutoring, with an equal opportunity to develop critical academic skills. Our hope is that by providing academic support and building confidence, these students will thrive individually, and will also contribute to the growth and success of their community.

What We Do

CONNECT

We accept applications from families across Greater Vancouver and select a limited number of elementary and high school students to receive free tutoring for one school year.

PLAN

Upon acceptance, we will design a unique program based on the needs of the scholarship student. 

TEACH

Our experienced tutors will provide individualized support to scholarship students through private and group lessons.

INSPIRE

By fostering the development of strong, independent learning habits, we hope to help students build confidence.

ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

(Kindergarten – Grade 7)

Upon acceptance into the Community Scholars program, students in kindergarten through Grade 7 will be placed in one of the weekly Singapore Math or English group lessons offered at our centre in West Vancouver. Our Core Math group lessons follow the Singapore Math® curriculum to establish a solid foundation of numeracy. Students can confidently build on this when learning new concepts in their school classroom. Our Core English group lessons help students improve pronunciation, reading comprehension, writing, spelling, grammar and punctuation.

HIGH SCHOOL

(Grade 8 – Grade 12)

Upon acceptance into the Community Scholars program, students in Grades 8 through 12 will work one-on-one with a tutor during weekly private lessons. Students have the flexibility to choose which subjects they would like to focus on. Our tutors will also offer guidance in organizational and study skills, ensuring the development of strong independent learning habits which are fundamental to academic success, especially as students begin considering post-secondary studies. Private lessons can take place at our centre in West Vancouver or at a more convenient location for the scholarship student upon request.

Application process
