    Prospective Grade 5 to 12 students are assessed for their academic abilities in a non-threatening environment with a Mentor-developed test. The test begins at 9:30am. Spots in the testing should be pre-booked as there is some paperwork that should be completed ahead of time and there is the possibility that there will be limited spots in some grades or programmes.

Life At The Primary Campus!expand

Mentor College has developed a primary programme which builds on the enthusiasm and involvement which children feel when learning.

Students from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 4 are immersed in a stimulating curriculum and provided with a wealth of support, and encouragement. Staff members foster the development of good work habits and a sense of responsibility which provide a solid foundation for the challenges that lie ahead.

Students in the Primary Division are challenged by Mentor’s curriculum, as it is more advanced than those in public, separate and most private school programmes. Homeroom teachers instruct in math, reading, grammar, spelling and social studies, and specialty teachers teach music, computers, science, French and physical education.

In addition to the curriculum, there are a host of school clubs, teams, and activities that students are welcome to join. The highlight of the school year occurs when the entire school puts on the year-end musical in June!

International Travel Experiences For HS Studentsexpand

This past March Break saw three groups of students and teachers travel to three different parts of the world with three very aims and travel itineraries. The destinations of these trips were Cambodia, China, and South Africa. 

While they enjoyed their share of sightseeing, the students who traveled to Cambodia were on a mission to assist with landmie relief. We asked the students what their favourite parts of the trip were and most seemed to agree that visiting the school where our donations were used to clear the school yards of mines and unexploded bombs was hard to top. The reception we received was heart-rendering. Touring the training facility for the dogs and their human partners for landmine detection was also an amazing visit, as was the rehabilitation centre for landmine victims. Actually going into a minefield to see the miners at work and watching workers detonate four landmines strapped together is, of course, something none of the students will ever forget.

The HS Business trip to China was a once in a lifetime experience! The students were all immersed in the rich Chinese culture while also learning about International Business. The golden triangle tour took the group through China’s top tourist cities: Beijing, Xi’an, and Shanghai, followed by Hong Kong. Beijing stops included he Summer Palace, Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City, a Cloisonné factory, the Hutongs, and hiking along the Great Wall of China. The last stop was Hong Kong where the students were the guests of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce. They also toured Victoria Peak and had fun at Ocean Park, enjoying the rides, wildlife, and a presentation from the park’s marketing department.

This March break also saw twenty-four science and biology students traveling to South Africa to participate in a global research and conservation programme. This form of ecotourism aims to educate volunteers about conservation issues, introduce them to field study practices, and use the data they collect to add to ongoing research projects. Highlights included a visit to Struwig Game Reserve where they carried out game transects, bird point counts and assessed habitat to determine the impact of elephants. They also photographed incredible animals close up and got expert info from bush guides. Oliphants river adjacent to camp. A number of our students also completed their PADI scuba dive training, becoming certified divers for life.

Intermediate Division: Amazing Outdoor Experienceexpand

Each year, our grade 5-8 students (and various high school students as well) have the opportunity to enjoy a four-day visit to our Outdoor Education Centre. Located on 135 acres of land near Gravenhurst, the property hosts a variety of habitats, including lakefront, field, stream, marshland, old growth forest and Canadian Shield. The cost of the trip is included in the annual tuition. Our hands-on approach allows learning through education and recreation. Educational activities include vegetation identification, animal habitat study, geology/soil study and meteorological graphing, while recreational opportunities include cross-country skiing, orienteering, canoeing, native games, winter survival, campfires and night hikes. A 5000-square foot cabin hosts up to 40 students, and is staffed by two full-time outdoor education teachers and a chef.
