Academy

All Our Dreams (AOD) Academy is a self-funded tuition-free K-6 school providing high quality and holistic education to the most vulnerable children in the Dominican Republic. Through this program AOD provides children with school materials, uniforms, daily vitamin and 2 nutritious meals per day (breakfast and lunch).

Our curriculum is addressed in all instructional areas. Materials are adapted in the Canadian context and accommodations are made to meet each child’s individual needs. Within our school’s welcoming and intimate environment we provide a wealth of opportunities to bring out the best in all our students.

AOD Academy offers a library with books, desks, computers, a projector screen, and internet connectivity.

Students at AOD are less likely to turn to prostitution and violence than comparison children

Our Unique Model

Just access to education isn’t enough. At AOD we give students access to an education that facilitates not only academic knowledge and skills, but also enables us to reach our full potential as human beings and learn how to live together. Lessons go beyond book knowledge: Our energy is spent on modelling and truly empowering our young people on what confident, articulate, successful, respectful, self-confident boys and girls look like.
