Academics


Curriculum Traditional

Primary Curriculum: Traditional


What Fulford Academy says: Our academic program for students in grades 7 to 10 integrates learning the main subjects and English language.

    Curriculum Pace Standard-enriched

    • Standard-enriched
    • Accelerated
    • Student-paced

    Broadly-speaking, the main curriculum -- like that of most schools -- paces the provincially-outlined one. This pace is steady and set by the teachers and school. The curriculum might still be enriched in various ways: covering topics more in-depth and with more vigor than the provincial one, or covering a broader selection of topics.

    Flexible pacing:

    Flexible pacing style = offered
    Subject-streaming (tracking)
    Multi-age classrooms as standard
    Ability-grouping (in-class) as common
    Frequent use of cyber-learning (at-their-own-pace)
    Regular guided independent study opportunities
    Differentiated assessment

    What Fulford Academy says about flexible pacing: This information is not currently available.


    Academic Culture Supportive

    • Rigorous
    • Supportive

    A school with a “supportive” academic culture focuses more on process than short-term outcomes: academic performance is a welcomed side-benefit, but not the driving focus. This does not mean the school lacks standards, or has low expectations for its students: a school can have a supportive academic culture and still light the fire of ambition in its students. It does mean, however, the school provides a less intensive culture than schools with a “rigorous” academic classification, and is focused more simply on instilling a love of learning and life-long curiosity.

    What Fulford Academy says: We are a very supportive environment where we do our best to accentuate the strengths of the students while also building up the areas where they may need enrichment.


    Developmental Priorities Intellectual, Balanced

    Primary Developmental Priority: Intellectual
    Academically strong, creative, and critical thinkers, capable of exercising rationality, apprehending truth, and making aesthetic distinctions.

    Secondary Developmental Priority: Balanced
    Equal attention is paid to a balance of priorities: intellectual, emotional, social, and physical.

    What Fulford Academy says: We strive to create an environment where we are consistently enriching both the student’s Intellectual and Social intelligences.

    Student Testimonial

    Fulford Academy was very instrumental in my life and I would like to share with you my experience at Fulford. I was only 12 years old when I came to Fulford from Korea. I had no background in English and could hardly communicate. However, with its well-structured language and academic program, I learned not only to communicate but also to read, write and, most importantly, think in English within a short frame of time. After a year at Fulford, I attended Upper Canada College for 2 years and moved to Trinity Pawling School, in New York State. Upon graduating from high school, I went on to college and currently pursuing my education at Cornell University as a bachelor science in the Industrial and Labor Relations School, as a human resource management major. The strengths of the Fulford education have helped me succeed through all stages of my education following my time in Brockville. Its focus on linguistic, academic and cultural preparation for students allowed me to make a smooth transition into boarding schools and into Cornell. I can confidently say that without my time at Fulford, I would not have been able to adapt to and keep up with academics at these elite schools. Furthermore, Suzan Kendall and Nelson Williams have helped me build and shape my character. Often, students come to the school at an age during which their values and character are shaped. I was positively influenced by Mrs. Kendall, Mr. Williams and many other faculty members in building my character which tremendously contributed to my success later on. With many of the attributes that I had developed at Fulford such as leadership, positivity and perseverance, I was elected the captain of varsity soccer and track and field, the head of international club, the head proctor, and the school president during my senior year in high school. I cannot encapsulate here every benefit I derived, but hopefully this illustrates the value of Fulford's education. ...
