“I have accomplished things that I never imagined I would in Brazil and am experimenting with new activities and new food in a new culture. It has been really cool.”Julia, Brazil
What students discover about themselves in high school can be just as important as what they learn about the outside world. Our high schools are grades 9 to 12 and offer a wealth of academic opportunities in a welcoming and supportive environment. All of our schools offer French pathway options, a variety of programs, sports, arts, clubs and activities to encourage our students to grow and thrive, with the option of online learning through our Virtual Academy.
Our intermediate schools are grades 7 and 8, and for most students their intermediate school will be housed in the same building as their high school. In intermediate school, students have different teachers for many subjects, usually stay with the same group of students (called their homeroom), change classrooms for each course, have lockers to store personal belongings, have a wider choice of extracurricular activities and social engagement opportunities, in preparation for the transition to high school. Students can join our schools anytime, in-person or through our virtual program.
We provide academic excellence in French and English, welcome families of all faiths and have some of the highest achievement scores in Ontario. But, education is more than teaching students how to do well on tests. It’s about guiding the development of the whole child. We support the whole person’s mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual growth in a safe, diverse and respectful community. Elementary schools are Junior Kindergarten to Grade 6 and students can start anytime, in-person or virtually.
