Academic school

Grades: 1-8

During their elementary education at Arts and Science Academy of Canada our students learn to think critically, to learn from their mistakes and challenges posed by everyday learning, and develop resilience to face their future. Our comprehensive learning process includes not only academics at the highest level found in the current educational system but also the potential to develop children physically into healthy and strong individuals in mind and body; this is achieved through ballet classes where children gain great posture, flexibility, strength, healthy habits and discipline of the mind. We provide a safe and orderly environment where students in primary school take part in an enriched educational program designed to help them reach their full potential. Our students are exposed to a culturally rich curriculum with emphasis in English, Math, and French – all fueled by creativity and discipline!

The Academy uses the Big History Project curriculum that presents students with the entire history of the universe – scientifically accurate – as the conceptual framework for learning Mathematics, English, Science, French, Social Science, and Arts. Why is this great? The program was developed by an Australian history professor and is currently supported by a range of scientists and educators including Bill Gates. Having a framework for all knowledge and learning helps students develop a worldview that is consistently interconnected and meaningful, where, like in reality, everything follows everything else. That is why our students are usually ahead of the public education program, particularly in mathematics. Help your children advance faster and retain more knowledge. After eight years of elementary education our students are ready for an easy transition into High School.

Nathaniel: “Last week I took part in the Math Olympiad that was held in Oakville. I expected lots of challenging problems but the Olympiad questions were easy, and two of them were hard. I tried to use my logic and do all the questions. As well there was Sudoku. My number was 305. The Mathematical Olympiad was fun!”

Daniel: “On May 21, there was a Math Olympiad in Oakville. To my surprise, the Olympiad questions were not that hard. Most questions were based on divisibility, number patterns and problem solving skills. The most interesting questions was a clock problem.”
