Whether it’s the friendly staff and students, the incredible nature surrounding the campus, or the innovative curriculum and programs that St. John’s Academy provides; your child will find our school to be an inspirational learning environment.
We have a wonderful Academic Program at St. John’s Academy. We begin with an understanding that the 21st century will place, and already has placed, new demands on learners, teachers, and workers. With this as the starting point, we have incorporated the latest educational research into the creation of a 21st century ready educational community, where innovation and creativity are paramount.
As you might imagine, learning in a smaller group can have some advantages. There’s more one-on-one time between the students and the teachers, and it’s a less daunting setting for students who might find it hard to pose questions or engage in teamwork. At St. John’s Academy we appreciate having smaller class sizes so that our students can learn better.
There are approximately 280 post-secondary institutions across Canada alone. So when you consider that your child might want to apply to post-secondary education all around the world, it can seem like a daunting task! That’s why we’re here to help them navigate their way through the process.
Students will be encouraged to develop their own research questions, question the material they encounter, and connect their learning to other content that interests them and independently research topics of interest to share with their peers.
All teachers at St. John’s Academy aim to make their instruction relevant to students’ lives and is taught within the context of the real world. Learning should be relevant and it should help students to navigate the complexity of modern life.
Given that St. John’s Academy is surrounded by water, mountains and fresh air, we make sure that our students have lots of opportunities to take their learning outside. We believe outdoor education is essential to our mission of developing well-rounded students who demonstrate excellence in scholarship, leadership, and character. It will challenge students to always do their best.
Whether it’s Design, Visual Arts or Dramatic Arts, St. John’s Academy appreciates connecting learning through creative endeavours, whether it’s through experimenting with textiles or honing our creative juices through performing arts.
