Our Take: Quetico College School
Michael Heaton founded Quetico College School in 2013 with the intention of providing something unique within the world of private education and, by any measure, he’s done precisely that. The concept is a bold one, namely to create an environment in which students can focus intently on their studies, build strong interpersonal skills, and engage authentically with the natural environment as relevant to the curriculum as well as recreation. The location was first developed in 1957 and served for many years as a training facility for mining and community care operations in the area. The site has been augmented and updated consistently since and, as a result, doesn’t reflect its age, including up to date living, fitness, and administration facilities. The ideal student is one looking for a unique high school experience, and who will thrive in a very active, close-knit, rural educational community.
