What Makes Us Different?

Welcome to Eastern Academy and congratulations on taking your first step towards amazing career success!

We are a nationally recognized career college that has been training graduates from across Canada and abroad for over 30 years in the fields of healthcare, business, supply chain and information technology. As an educational leader we offer:

  • Career Coaches to assist your job search
  • Half-day classes – one subject at time
  • Practical hands-on experience
  • Small classes
  • Free life-time refresher classes

Since being founded in 1984, our school has enjoyed amazing growth and an exciting transformation. We’ve expanded from a small school in downtown St. John’s to one of the largest institutions in the province. We have added several exciting programs and helped 6,000 alumni build great careers. To accommodate our larger enrollment, we moved to a modern complex at 22 Pearl Place, added significant infrastructure/technology, hired new staff and built partnerships with major employers, community groups and sister training institutions.

To highlight our new direction, we changed our name from Eastern College to Eastern Academy in 2016. This was accompanied by a new logo, refreshed website and a rejuvenated brand that captures the excitement happening around campus.

While we’re making some changes, our students will continue to receive the same great programs from their excellent instructors and support staff. Our name may be a little different but the feeling of family and focus on graduate success that has defined us for decades has stayed the same. We think you’ll be thrilled by what you see when you visit the new Eastern Academy!

Eastern Academy has a very clear mission that is aimed at supporting our students as they build their careers:
