Welcome To ACCESS
Welcome to ACCESS - a small school with a big heart. A school where you will feel like a part of a family - where everyone knows one another. A school where you will feel important and cared about - where you are a name and not a number. Walk inside ACCESS and you will see students from many countries from around the world, talking and interacting with each other. ACCESS is a friendly, warm school where there are no cliques and everyone is a member of one big family - the ACCESS family.
At ACCESS, our top priority is to provide our students with high quality English language programs. To ensure quality standards are constantly being maintained, ACCESS is a member of Quality English, and accredited by Languages Canada. We regularly undergo quality reviews by both of these associations.
ACCESS has been an active member of Quality English since 2006 and is proud to have been selected as the first Quality English school in North America.
Quality English schools are carefully selected from the best Independent English language schools in English speaking countries. They are renowned for their quality and reputation, and offer a choice of general and specialised courses in desirable locations around the world. All schools are independently owned and managed. They are not part of a chain and each school has its own unique character.
Quality English is based in the UK.

Your Home Away From Home
ACCESS is a mid-sized, friendly school with the smallest classes of any language school in Toronto! Because of our small classes, you will get to know many people from other countries around the world. You will also get to know your teachers very well, and they will get to know you too. Our friendly staff and counselors are here to help you if you have any problems or need help with anything. Most students really appreciate our friendly “family-like” atmosphere.
Small Multi-National Classes
At ACCESS, we do our best to attract students from all over the world. We also give each student constant personal attention. Our small classes, with a maximum 10 students, guarantee it!
Central Downtown Location
ACCESS is in an excellent location. Less than a 1-minute walk from Yonge / Bloor subway station, close to the University of Toronto, the Eaton Centre, and the Toronto Reference Library. ACCESS is in the centre of it all! Check it out.
Our professional teachers are all Canadian university graduates who are certified in TESL (Teaching English As A Second Language), and have extensive overseas English teaching experience. What defines an ACCESS teacher? They are enthusiastic about teaching English, have the best methods, and truly care about their students.
A good homestay is important while you live in Toronto. We care about your experience and make sure you are happy.
Free Friday Activities
At ACCESS, we try hard to encourage our students to get out and see Toronto, make friends from around the world, and practise the English they learn in the classroom. In order to facilitate this happening, ACCESS offers a free activity to all students every Friday afternoon or evening. During Free Friday activities ACCESS students come together to experience sightseeing, special interest workshops, sports, and cultural activities.
In addition to our Free Friday activities, we have regular social events planned for evenings & weekends so that you can get to know other ACCESS students easily, experience Toronto, and have fun!
