    Developmental Priorities

     
    Intellectual
    The goal is to cultivate "academically strong, creative and critical thinkers, capable of exercising rationality, apprehending truth, and making aesthetic distinctions."
    Balanced
    "Equal emphasis is placed on a balance of priorities: intellectual, emotional, social and physical cultivation."

    Curriculum pace

     
    Standard-enriched
    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.

    Academic culture

     
    Rigorous
    A school with a “rigorous” academic culture places a high value on academic performance, and expects their students to do the same. This does not mean the school is uncaring, unsupportive, or non-responsive -- far from it. A school can have a rigorous academic culture and still provide excellent individual support. It does mean, however, the school places a particular emphasis on performance -- seeking the best students and challenging them to the fullest extent -- relative to a normal baseline. High expectations and standards – and a challenging yet rewarding curriculum – are the common themes here. Keep in mind this classification is more relevant for the older grades: few Kindergarten classrooms, for example, would be called “rigorous”.

    Description

    APPLEBY COLLEGE

    Founded in 1911 and located on a picturesque 60-acre campus in Oakville, Ontario, Appleby College is a university preparatory, coeducational day/boarding school for students in Grades 7–12. At Appleby, we believe every student deserves an opportunity to pursue an education that excites and challenges them. An education that offers them the chance to discover and embrace their passions both inside and outside of the classroom. Hallmarks of the Appleby experience include our Grade 12 boarding programme, our emphasis on global learning and cultural understanding with participation in a global learning experience as a core requirement of the Appleby College Diploma, our commitment to financial assistance with over $5 million in bursaries, loans and scholarships annually, and our experiential learning programme centred around the S. Bruce McLaughlin Northern Campus in Temagami. To learn more about Appleby please visit us at www.appleby.on.ca.
