Why Us

Our Kingston campus of Academy of Learning Career College is a registered Career College with the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities of Ontario and is listed as a Private School on the Ministry of Education of Ontario website. Established in 1990, AOLCC Kingston has consistently been a community leader providing high quality, fully supported, self-paced learning.  We pride ourselves on our innovation and trendsetting when it comes to creating ways for our Learning Coaches to provide hands-on, one-on-one care for each student, a standard that distinguishes us from other colleges. Our goal is to help you improve your life through quality higher education and personalized coaching so you can successfully develop the necessary professional skills and positive attitude you need to achieve your career goals and life dreams.

With our unique and effective Integrated Learning System (ILS), we have successfully trained thousands of students to become job-ready for the career they have trained for.  We offer a wide variety of relevant programs including Diplomas and Certifications in Business Administration, Computer Applications, Information Technology, Healthcare Administration, and much more.

This focused-learning approach will help you to complete your training in a compressed timeframe (most programs may be completed in less than 1 year!).  Why spend years in a community college when you can enjoy flexible scheduling that allows you to balance your personal life with your educational goals?  Our students are able to customize their own attendance to meet the requirements of their program with minimal personal disruption.

Start Immediately

We offer open-enrolment so that students may begin their studies as soon as possible.  Continuous intake allows students to graduate throughout the year instead of each spring (when other colleges have graduating students). This is especially helpful when competing for employment.

You Have What You Need to Start

AOLCC Kingston prides itself on its inclusive and intuitive approach when enrolling students. We want you to be successful, and with this in mind, we will make sure that you start at the level that is right for you.

Learn at Your Own Pace

The exclusive Integrated Learning™ System allows you to learn at your own pace and there is no need to align your study time with other students.

Student-Focused Training

We understand that everyone’s learning style is different.  To accommodate every student, we offer training through an Integrated Learning System that effectively guides learners using visual, audio and text tools, in combination with one-on-one support, to make every learning experience fit your needs.

Competency-Based Learning

Our courses are designed to teach clearly defined, relevant content with comprehensive review and testing at the end of each course to ensure confidence and understanding of subject matter which can be applied in the workplace.

Doing vs. Listening

Studies show that by hearing something we remember 30%, and by seeing we remember 40%.  By doing we remember 70%, and with this in mind, our courses blend theoretical learning with assigned tasks to ensure that you are 100% competent and confident when it comes to your job search.

Individual Assistance

Our facilitators are on-site to provide one-on-one coaching during operational hours so that you may feel secure in your learning when you need extra support.  They are also available to students by email or phone to guide you through the curriculum and help you stay on track with your studies.
