The People Behind MEI Academy "The World is Our Classroom," and our mission is to provide the finest learning experience available to students. At MEI we encourage our students to view the world with new eyes and integrate "real life" into their academic studies. We are committed to providing students with the skills that will prepare them for their post-secondary education, and we strive to offer a rich variety of experiences that will serve as a foundation for a lifetime of living and learning. Joe Mei, Program Director Joe Mei has been involved in teaching and overseas education for over twenty years. His diverse educational experiences across Canada, the United States and Europe have strengthened his conviction that there is no substitute for experiential learning. Mr. Mei's love for history and literature of all cultures has inspired him to establish this international academy. His ongoing mission is to provide life-changing educational opportunities for students. Upper Grand District School Board The Upper Grand District School Board accredits all courses offered by MEI International Academy. The Upper Grand District School Board is located in Guelph, Ontario, and operates high schools in Guelph and surrounding areas. The partnership between MEI and the Upper Grand District School Board provides students and teachers a chance to explore international learning opportunities; "the world is our classroom," and together we make this a reality. MEI Staff We believe the best conceived plans need exceptional leaders to execute them. Our unique learning environment requires that our teachers possess extensive knowledge in their subject area and excel in the use of contemporary teaching methods. It has taken over 20 years of travelling and teaching to summon together the finest teachers for our programs. We select our staff based on their academic knowledge, travel experience, and most importantly their passion for teaching young adults. As a testament to how the MEI experience impacts students, many of our alumni return as faculty members after completing their university degrees. They return, wanting to give back what they received as students. Students and parents will have an opportunity to meet the staff and teachers at a pre-departure meeting held before each trip begins. Course Accreditation and Curriculum All MEI programs are accredited by the Upper Grand District School Board. These course credits will appear on students' Ontario Student Records. - Ontario students will receive Ontario Ministry of Education course accreditation through the Upper Grand District School Board. - British Columbia students will receive British Columbia Ministry of Education course accreditation through Mulgrave School. - Students from schools outside of British Columbia and Ontario may have the academic courses accredited by their individual schools or local school boards. Course Credit Details All course curriculum is developed by MEI Academy and the Upper Grand District School Board.
