St. Clement's School
Leadership opportunities and training are available to all students at all stages of their careers at St. Clement's School. Student leaders are encouraged to take initiative, work cooperatively, use their creativity as a well as their intelligence, communicate effectively, and learn from their difficulties as well as their successes.
St. Clement's School is a highly democratic institution. School prefects are
elected by the senior students and staff, while the Student Council president
and vice president, as well as the House Heads, are elected by students. In
addition, individual classes elect representatives and class leaders. Students
sit on committees and participate in the planning process.
Small yet mighty: with approximately 425 students, St. Clement's has 44 teams in 14 sports. This is no doubt thanks to a voluntary student participation rate of 85 per cent. Every faculty member coaches at least one team and/or supervises one club.
Teams this year include: alpine skiing, basketball, cross country, field hockey, soccer, swimming, badminton, ice hockey, volleyball, softball, track and field, tennis, and golf. St. Clement's is competitive in each of these sports, often winning championships and tournaments. Students try out for teams, and those selected practise in the morning or after school. Games against CISAA teams are scheduled once to twice weekly. Through CISAA, senior athletes can qualify for OFSAA competitions. SCS athletes practise and compete at on-campus and off-campus facilities.
Students begin participating in co-curricular athletics in Grade 3, and physical
activity continues in the academic curriculum until graduation. Intramural or
House sports available during the day help students to try out new activities,
gain confidence, and have fun. Leadership opportunities are available to all
athletes, and some teams have captains that are elected or appointed. At the
end of the year, athletic achievements, efforts, and improvements are celebrated
at the Athletic Banquet.
The co-curricular program at St. Clement's School supports the academic program in promoting the development of students' skills and character. There is a wide range of activities available, including sports, the arts, and special interest clubs. Most students take part in a number of activities in different areas. Students are encouraged, by the school and by their student leaders, to try new things and to participate fully in school life. Students with areas of particular interest can take on leadership roles such as coaching a team of younger girls or running a club.
St. Clement's School is renowned for academic excellence. A commitment to the highest standards of academic achievement, coupled with an innovative approach to curriculum and teaching, creates a program that is both rigorous and flexible.
Junior School (Grades 1-6) - The Junior School is made up of one class of each grade and exposes students to a broad range of material, giving them the basic building blocks to support them throughout their academic careers. The curriculum is designed to foster personal as well as academic growth, and the supportive and nurturing environment helps students to develop self-confidence and openness to new activities.
Middle School (Grades 7-9) - The Middle School is made up of two Grade 7 classes, two Grade 8 classes, and three Grade 9 classes. The Middle School program is rigorous and challenging, incorporating a range of academic disciplines on a rotating timetable. Diversity is balanced with security, as Grade 7 and 8 homeforms stay together for most subjects. During these years, the focus is on independent work, time management, critical thinking and writing and study skills. Many secondary school courses are taught beginning in Grade 8.
Senior School (Grades 10-12) - The Senior School is made up of three Grade 10 classes, three Grade 11 classes, and one Graduating Class. The Senior School program allows students to specialize in their areas of interest through a number of elective courses, while continuing the focus on English, French, mathematics, and science established in the Junior and Middle Schools. St. Clement's Senior School requirements in mathematics, science and French exceed the provincial standards for secondary schools.
