Principal's Message

principal

Lance Postma, Head of School

The cornerstone of a RLC experience has always been its close-knit, inclusive community, set in a truly beautiful and natural setting, where young people learn under the supervision of caring adults who see their profession as a calling, not a job.  Our commitment has always been to provide a 'Best of Self' education that includes developing leadership skills, while building within students the values of Confidence, Competence and Character.

These values remain consistent, but how we define these values must be harmonious with the world our students will soon enter. RLC introduces The Future Fowrad Program to help redefine the Competence value to meet the demands of tomorrow with a focus on relevant skills, knowledge, attributes and credentials that will put our students at the forefront as candidates for the programs and careers they seek.

RLC continues with constant values such as focus on post-secondary preparation, rich extra curriculars, unique natural environment and small learning groups. The Future Forward Program will anchor these values with clearer personal goals, diverse and personalized learning strategies, diverse learning spaces and much focus on building skills and competencies for the future.

Competition for placement in post secondary programs and beyond this, in the workforce, has never been greater. At their age, few of us had to ask, "Will I get a job?" , but today, so many young people do. With Furure Forward, RLC students will be able to ask different questions and have the skills and confidence to answer them.

Academics

Curriculum Progressive

Primary Curriculum: Progressive


  • Pedagogies and subject courses


  • Mathematics Traditional Math

      Traditional Math typically teaches a method or algorithm FIRST, and THEN teaches the applications for the method. Traditional algorithms are emphasized and practiced regularly: repetition and drills are frequently used to ensure foundational mastery in the underlying mathematical procedures. The traditional approach to math views math education as akin to building a logical edifice: each brick depends on the support of the previously laid ones, which represent mastery over a particular procedure or method. Traditional Math begins by giving students a tool, and then challenges students to practice using that tool an applied way, with progressively challenging problems. In this sense Traditional Math aims to establish procedural understanding before conceptual and applied understanding.

    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.

    What Rosseau Lake College says: [Rosseau Lake College has not provided this information]


    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

    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 Rosseau Lake College says: [Rosseau Lake College has not provided this information]


    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.
