The Academy of Classical Oriental Sciences has spent a busy summer under construction, as we have moved the entire school facilities a few blocks away from our old location, right to the very heart of Nelson on Baker Street. We still retain a historical feel to our new school. Now as a campus with two locations, both with tall ceilings and beautiful architecture. The historical Burns building- built 1899, houses our main administration, library, and classrooms. Our other location just a minute’s walk away is in the Hudson’s Bay department store- built 1900, now known as the Nelson Trading Company. Here we have re-built the space to our needs, our ground floor bookstore and herbal dispensary, with 2 new clinic spaces on either side; our student clinic and professional outpatient clinic. Up above overlooking Baker street are classrooms, student lounge facilities. Our facilities with our new campus community, including:
- a fully stocked Chinese herbal dispensary
- comprehensive bookstore
- private treatment rooms
- 2 student lounges
- administration offices
An integral part of our acupuncture school are our thriving Outpatient and Student Clinics, which provide students with extensive and crucial practical experience, as well as offering the community of Nelson an excellent level of both free, and low cost affordable health care which includes a confidential addictions clinic. We also offer outreach programs into the local community.
