Our Philosophy

Our belief is that the combination of strong academic skills and attention to emotional intelligence leads to individuals better equipped to succeed inside and outside the school structure.

We firmly believe that success is the result of vision, self-discipline, time and effort.

Further, we believe that it is important to hold oneself accountable to good values and good manners. These are not just empty words, but beliefs that are dear to us and that we aspire to every day. As such, we continually teach and remind our students of their good manners and harbour an atmosphere, through our staffs’ example, that allows students to see that good manners are important attributes that good and successful people value.

Our holistic approach is at the root of everything we do: tutoring, English classes, seminars on youth success and financial intelligence, digital workshops and coding, preparation for the high school admission exam, programmes for pedagogical days, our March break, and summer camp.

A word from the Director

I have always been guided by two ideas.
First, the ideal world is one in which people help others – unreservedly and with great happiness. Secondly, the idea that Edward Everett Hale expressed, that I paraphrase: I am only one person, but still I am one, and I will not let what I cannot do, interfere with what I can do.

I want to help make the world a better place, and I cannot think of a better way to do that than helping children to stay in school. My goal is that through the Valiquette Academy Foundation, we will be able to help every child receive as much educational aid as needed. Our goal is to motivate all students to want to learn, to finish high school, CEGEP, and successfully complete their university studies. Ultimately, our goal is to help children to become successful, happy and positive contributing members of society.

There is a lot to do to achieve these goals. Sometimes our children are hungry and we have to provide them with food. Other times, they do not have adequate winter clothes and we have to help there too. On a daily basis we must provide school materials, books and computers. At the same time, we need to motivate children to become aware of the importance of education and inspire them to study. We must conform to the highest standards, act as mentors and encourage children to want to become the best versions of themselves, despite seemingly insurmountable obstacles.

If you are reading these words, it is because the idea of helping children to receive education is important to you. We hope that we may have your help so that we may benefit more children and, hopefully, create a better world.

JAY VALIQUETTE

Born in Ottawa, Canada, Jay has been teaching, coaching and mentoring children and adolescents since 1992.

His passion for helping others, combined with a love of education and his own early academic struggles with Dyslexia, have imbued him with the desire to never give up on himself nor those that he helps.

In 2010 Jay created the Valiquette Academy. The reality of seeing children struggle not just with school but also the effect of not having school supplies, difficult family issues, hunger, etc., made him realize the importance of doing more.

In 2018 he founded the Valiquette Academy Foundation. Jay cares deeply for every student and is committed to providing each of them with the necessary tools to be successful in life, both in terms of emotional intelligence as well as academic success. His approach is holistic in nature and founded in a desire for long-term positive life habits.
