Lifelong Learners Grow Here

Our robust academic program is dynamic, challenging and rewarding. Students drive their own learning, guided by supportive, expert teachers who get to know each boy and his unique passions, interests and strengths. Here, students discover who they are -- and who they can become.

Through innovative, inquiry-based learning experiences, students deepen their understanding of themselves, their community and the world around them. They make their own discoveries, find their voice, and create meaningful connections across subjects, and in and outside the classroom. With an emphasis on exploration, experiential learning and collaborative discussion, students gain the knowledge and skills to be lifelong learners, successful in any path they may choose.

Guided by caring, specialist educators

Our exceptional faculty are highly-motivated, caring professionals who are specialists in their fields through education and experience. As lifelong learners, our educators are important role models for students, dedicated to their own ongoing growth and development as they provide enriching and impactful learning.

Teachers develop meaningful relationships with their students, which creates a strong sense of belonging and community. We know that boys thrive under a relational teaching method, so these relationships have a meaningful impact on their learning and character development.

    We inspire students to develop a love of mathematics and problem-solving, engaging with and creating models that summarize how the world works. Through math education, we offer a variety of differentiated activities so that all students can experience success and develop a positive outlook towards mathematics and self-efficacy.
  • Languages

    Languages allow students to explore and become aware of different ways of thinking – essential to whole-child and character development. Exposure to new languages and cultures opens up students’ opportunities to connect with the world around them, building socially responsible citizens who contribute to their communities.
  • Science

    In science, students engage in problem-solving through inquiry-based thinking and experimentation, developing an appreciation for the world as a fascinating place where knowledge changes over time. This is where students grow their sense of place within the natural and physical world, and develop the skills and confidence to be problem solvers.
  • Social Studies

    In Social Studies, students examine different social aspects, historic and current events, systems and skills that help them make sense of the world and their place in it. Through integrated, discussion-based approaches and student-led projects, students are supported to make new connections and follow their unique interests.
  • Physical Education

    We teach a “Fit for Life” model where students are encouraged to see sports, fitness and wellness as a lifelong endeavour. In PE, our educators and coaches work to create a safe environment for students to take risks, learn new skills, and foster the connection between physical activity and positive mental health.
