Our Approach

The ACE EdVenture Approach used at Sirius Scholar has been pushing the boundaries of education for the past 22 years, impacted the lives of 15,000 students to date, and is still going strong. Conceived and developed by our founders, Anne and Melinda, it stemmed from a simple observation: 12 years in the conventional education system, yet students were unprepared for university and the workplace [it’s still happening].

So we did something about it.

Creativity and innovation are the names of our game, and we continuously innovate our methodology so that our students are always getting the best education possible.

What type of assessment is required for admission and why?


A clear show of previous academic results in addition to being physically and mentally healthy. A simple assessment may be required on a case-to-case basis for us to gauge a student’s proficiency to know how to best support him or her, and whether the environment and demands of the school are a fit for said student. Note that this is different from assessment or entrance assessment that are used to determine students’ academic inclinations and therefore which class they go into. We don’t have that practice here at Sirius Scholar.
