    Curriculum pace

    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

     
    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.
     
    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”.

    Preschool/K curriculum

     
     
    Play-based
    Play-based programs are the most common type of preschool and Kindergarten, and are founded on the belief young children learn best through play. Largely open-ended and minimally structured, play-based programs aim to develop social skills and a love of attending school. “Pre-academic” skills are taught, but in a more indirect way than at, say, an Academic program: through children playing in different “stations” set up around the classroom, which children choose on their own volition. Stations often contain an indirect lesson or developmental goal. Play-based classrooms are highly social and active.

    RUNDLE COLLEGE & RUNDLE ACADEMY

    Rundle College offers Kindergarten through Grade 12, though is divided across three campuses: one for each of the primary, elementary, and high school programs. As such, the school is able to provide a very broad range of programming while, at the same time, delivering a close, intimate student experience. The student population is academically inclined, and the program is focused on university preparation. As such, students enter a community of learners that share a like mind toward academic achievement. The facilities are up-to-date and often strikingly so, as is particularly the case with the WJ Collett School, home to the K-6 program. Progressive classroom design is combined with a consistent, purpose-oriented architectural aesthetic. Parents and students who turn to Rundle are looking for an engaging, personalized, academically inclined learning environment. And, unerringly, that’s precisely what they find. Rundle Academy, a sister program, supports learners diagnosed with various learning disabilities, and provides student-centred instruction to meet their specific learning needs.

  • PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

     

    Dewey Institute

    DEWEY INSTITUTE

    Rundle College & Rundle Academy

    RUNDLE COLLEGE & RUNDLE ACADEMY

    Message

    At Dewey, we understand the challenges that are in store for students. Our mission is to support students with the challenges they face and to help them reach their goals. As a former Director of Education in the province of Ontario and private school inspector, I know how important it is to choose the right school for your child. Parents who select this college can have confidence that we will strive to guide their children in making wise decisions so that, after their studies here, they will gain admission to and become successful graduates of a university or college.

    Headmaster's Welcome

    In our current educational landscape we are fortunate to have so many quality choices for our children’s education. For families that are new to Rundle College Society, let me take this opportunity to give you the essence of the ‘Rundle Experience’ so that you feel more informed about this very important educational choice.

    In the summer of 1985, Dr. W.J. Collett and Dr. R.C. Conklin set out to create a world-class educational institution where students could reach their full potential. The vision for the new school included small class sizes that were taught by the most talented and dedicated teachers. Our founders believed that through this essential combination of class size and excellence in instruction, the students in Rundle College Society’s care would be stewarded to excellence.  

    Beyond small class size and premiere educators, Rundle College Society has continued to focus on:

    An Attention to Excellence  

    In our hallways, our classrooms, our staff rooms, board meetings and business offices we have a commitment to excellence in all respects. Whether we are teaching a lesson, competing in an athletic competition, performing on stage, travelling on a service trip, or celebrating our Grade 12 Graduates, we know that ease is not the goal; excellence is.

    A Safe and Caring Environment.

    We pride ourselves in providing an environment where your children are safe and cared for.  Our teachers and support staff forge strong relationships with our student body, which creates an environment of open communication and support. Through this communication and support, our students are able to express themselves in a manner that honours who they are as individuals and learners.

    Enriched Individualized Learning

    Whether they attend our College or Academy Program, we strive to provide students with a learning experience that acknowledges their individuality in learning. We hope that students will not only learn the curriculum as it is delivered, but also learn to be creative, introspective, and truly evolved renaissance learners. When students understand their own cognition, they are then able to apply that knowledge in any situation that may present itself in the future.

    Decades later, we now know that Dr. Collett and Dr. Conklin were visionaries. Since the day the school opened in 1985, each member of our community has continued this tradition of excellence in education. Recently, I was again reminded of this by a colleague who indicated that I welcomed him to the school nearly 10 years ago by saying, “Welcome to Rundle College Society - this is the best place to be; it's a place you’ll never forget.”  I truly believe this is the essence of the ‘Rundle Experience’.

    I look forward to getting the chance to meet you and your family and hopefully welcome you to the Rundle community; together we will continue to fulfill Rundle College’s extraordinary mission.

    Sincerely,

    Jason B. Rogers
    Headmaster, Rundle College Society

      Our Take: primary curriculum type

      DEWEY INSTITUTE

      Traditional curricula tend to be very content-based and rooted in the core disciplines. It is a structured approach that involves the teacher delivering a unified curriculum through direct instruction. Students usually learn by observing and listening to their teacher, studying facts and concepts in textbooks, and completing both tests and written assignments - which challenge students to not only demonstrate their mastery of content but their ability to analyze and deconstruct it critically. Class discussions are also used to create critical dialogue around the content of the curriculum.

    Spina Bifida
    This is a condition present at birth due to the incomplete formation of the spine and spinal cord. It can lead to a number of physical challenges, including paralysis or weakness in the legs, bowel and bladder incontinence, hydrocephalus (too much fluid in the brain), and deformities of the spine.
    Dyspraxia (Developmental Coordination Disorder)
    This is a Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD). Also known as "sensory integration disorder," it affects fine and/or gross motor coordination in children and adults. It may also affect speech.
    Blindness
    Visual impairment is a decreased ability or inability to see that can't be fixed in usual ways, such as with glasses. Some people are completely blind, while others have what's called "legal blindness."
    Deafness
    Hearing impairment, also known as "hearing loss," is a partial or total inability to hear. The degree of hearing impairment varies between people. It can range from complete hearing loss (or deafness) to partial hearing loss (meaning the ears can pick up some sounds).

    RUNDLE COLLEGE & RUNDLE ACADEMY

    At Rundle Academy and Rundle College, we are proud of the unique and talented students who help create our dynamic learning environment. Our students are confident in small working environments and are highly motivated and engaged learners who have a strong desire to participate and contribute to our school community. Volunteerism and humanitarian efforts are also important parts of the culture at Rundle as students become strong and compassionate leaders and citizens. Rundle Academy and College welcome applicants who demonstrate - strong academic school standings - exceptional leadership qualities and interests - keen interest in the arts, athletics, and academics - a desire to volunteer and accept new challenges - an intent to pursue post-secondary education In addition, at Rundle Academy one factor central to the success of our program is attributed to the narrow profile of our students, all of whom must be diagnosed with a learning disability and/or ADHD. The Academy's mandate is to prepare students for entry to post-secondary studies after high school. Unfortunately, we do not offer a program or have support for students diagnosed on the Autism spectrum. Please note that applicants must demonstrate grade-appropriate proficiency in all facets of the English language in order to succeed academically and to fully participate in school life at Rundle College and Academy. We do not offer English as a Second Language (ESL) or English Language Learner (ELL) programs.
