Our Take: Kanata Academy
Founded in 1996, Kanata Academy has grown to offer all grades, from preschool through Grade 12. The program is based in the Ontario provincial curriculum, though sees that as the baseline rather than an apex of student achievement. Families that enroll are drawn by the small class sizes, and an approach to academics that is robust yet student-centered. They are also drawn by the continuity of the offering, knowing that students can remain in their peer group, and the greater school community, through the elementary and secondary years. Students who enroll enter a community of learners who share academic abilities, curiosities, and values. Parental involvement in the life of the school is both welcome and encouraged.
