Academics


Curriculum Traditional

Primary Curriculum: Traditional


What school says: Our day consists of academic learning and activities that focus on co-operation and structured socialization designed for emotional growth and academic success. We look for the “teachable moment,” during formal and informal instruction. When controversial issues emerge, our teachers address these situations and support students in problem solving and learning from the struggle. We do not believe our approach is alternative, but rather, an approach that is reflective of excellent teaching. Our teachers are part of a multidisciplinary team that includes onsite clinical staff. We believe in a collaborative environment that is supportive of the whole child. Beyond this, we believe in making learning fun and whenever possible look for opportunities to catch students doing well.Our teaching methodologies focus on individualized educational needs with low student teacher ratios.

    Curriculum Pace Student-paced

    • Standard-enriched
    • Accelerated
    • Student-paced

    The main curriculum pace is non-standardized and is HIGHLY responsive to the pacing of individual students, (via differentiated instruction, differentiated assessment, etc). In theory, some students outpace the default/normalized curriculum, while others spend periods "behind schedule" if they need the extra time.

    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

    What school says about flexible pacing: Individualized instruction and engaging interaction is gets our students back on track and restores confidence. The primary focus is on core subjects with other courses integrated as applicable.

    Developmental Priorities Balanced

    Primary Developmental Priority: Balanced
    Equal attention is paid to a balance of priorities: intellectual, emotional, social, and physical.

    What school says: Venture Academy's purpose is to assist youth to make and sustain positive behavioural change. Everything we do at Venture Academy points back to helping troubled teens make and sustain those positive changes. It's more than a mission statement, to us it's our purpose. At Venture Academy, our approach is attachment-based, solution oriented and holistic in nature. Programs are designed to invite positive change, build skills and focus on solutions and redevelop family attachments. The approach not only moves away from pathology, but moves towards a health, wellness and strengths orientation.
