    Curriculum pace

     
    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.
     
    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

     
    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

     
    Academic
    Academic-based preschools and Kindergartens are the most structured of the different types, and have a strong emphasis on math and reading readiness skills. These programs aim to expose children to what early-elementary school is like. While time is still allotted to free play, much of the day is built around explicit lessons guided by the teacher. Classrooms often resemble play-based ones (with different stations set up around the room), but at an Academic program the teacher leads students through the stations directly, and ties these activities to a whole-class lesson or theme.
     
    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.

    Our Take

    Our Take

    KELLS ACADEMY

    Irene Woods began her career as an educator within the public system, and while there noted that often the after-school tutorial sessions were more productive, and more time efficient, than the teaching done in the classroom. The obvious question—at least it was obvious to her—was, why don’t we just teach this way all the time? Which, in time, is exactly what she did, applying the tutorial model—small group, student-led instruction—to the entire curriculum. Kells was founded in 1978, and Woods has been an instructor and director there ever since. Those aspects of the tutorial model—individual attention, and a creative approach to instruction—are what continue to define the program today. The school has grown considerably over the years, including the creation of a boarding program, though the division between the elementary and high school programs helps to keep the focus small-group instruction.

    LOWER CANADA COLLEGE

    Founded in 1909, LCC has a long tradition and a reputation to match. The list of alumni includes some shining lights of Canadian arts, letters, politics, business, and academics. There is a sense of place, and it’s considerable—students feel that they are participating within something larger than themselves. Of course, LCC has evolved over the years, though adaptations have been considered and orderly. A bilingual program for the primary grades was adopted in the early 1990s. The school became fully coeducational in 1995. The International Baccalaureate programme, too, is relatively new. Families are attracted to the traditions of the school, and the dedication to adapting to meet the needs of students. LCC continues to provide an example both of the value of looking ahead, developing programs that will meet the evolving needs of students, and with an eye to the kinds of academic, professional, and social environments students will encounter in their post-secondary careers and beyond.

    Message

    Working as an educator in the public sector, I found that devoting time to after-school tutorials was a most positive and enriching experience for my students. I was consistently impressed at what students were able to learn and accomplish in a few short tutoring sessions, in comparison to the hours spent trying to master the same material in the classroom. This led me to consider a practical application of the tutorial model in a classroom setting, and resulted in the 1978 establishment of a unique tutorial service: the Westmount Learning Centre; and ultimately, to the foundation of Kells Academy.

    To recreate the one-on-one tutorial experience we committed to small classes, in a warm, welcoming environment, and engaging the participation of supportive and enthusiastic teachers. Using this model we were able to make learning more interesting, meaningful, and relevant, and most importantly, teach at the individual pace of each student— attributes we maintain and adhere to, to this very day.

    In 1990, Kells Academy acquired its own building in NDG at the corner of De Maisonneuve Boulevard West and Park Row West. Further expansion took place in 2004 with acquisition of the Hydro Quebec building situated on Cavendish Boulevard corner of De Maisonneuve, and now, our thriving elementary campus under the direction of Marla Perlman.

    Ask LCC students, parents, teachers, or alumni what makes LCC a special place and they will tell you: Abundant Opportunities; A Culture of Excellence; A Strong Community; and Exceptional Resources.

    We know this because we cared to ask. As educators, we understand that these defining characteristics are central to a student’s journey in discovering all that he or she can be. And this strikes at the core of our philosophy.

    Our school offers amazing opportunities for students in kindergarten through grade 12 because we believe they are essential to the student’s fullest development in mind, body, and heart. We also understand that it’s not “one-size-fits-all” when it comes to education and personal growth. Providing a breadth of well-integrated curricular and co-curricular programs keeps students engaged, allows them to try new things, and stretches their boundaries in a safe environment.

    What is striking—and personally gratifying—is that students and staff alike enjoy being at LCC. We are a school that sets high standards in all that we do, but we also welcome the challenge. Positive student involvement, committed teachers, supportive parents, and a joy of learning combine to make the LCC educational experience exceptional. Our faculty and staff inspire our students to do their best and discover new strengths and passions. These special relationships are the true measure of what distinguishes the programs and opportunities of our school.

    Community is part of our core values. At LCC, there is a genuine sense of pride and belonging palpable not only across our four school divisions, but also in all layers of school life. We live our motto—Non Nobis Solum/Not for Ourselves Alone. This means instilling a sense of responsibility and accountability in our students, and ensuring everyone has the chance to make a difference in the lives of others, locally or globally.

    Outstanding resources help make all of this possible. We are fortunate to have some of the best facilities in the city, which are complemented by innovative programming and teachers prepared to go the extra mile. Whether it be math and science, performing arts, technology, athletics, leadership, service, Pre-University, or the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme, it comes down to people, facilities and programs. Together, they provide a comprehensive experience that develops personal potential and brings about endless possibilities for LCC students.

    There are many excellent schools from which to choose and we recognize that selecting the school that best fits is important. We invite you to explore LCC and discover for yourself the journey that will lead to The Power to Be.

      Our Take: primary curriculum type

      KELLS ACADEMY

      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.

      LOWER CANADA COLLEGE

      Liberal Arts curricula share with traditional programs their emphasis on core knowledge-acquisition, but tend to borrow more best practices from the progressive approach. A Liberal Arts program might still feature group work and projects, for example, contrary to the more singular emphasis on tests and essays at a Traditional program.

      While Kells Academy adheres to guidelines established by the Quebec Ministry of Education, it delivers programs with significantly greater flexibility, identifying individual student skill levels as the first step in the process. By doing so, we ensure that students work within their range of ability and remain enthused and motivated, yet still challenged. Our approach is a combination of both the traditional and progressive methods.

      LOWER CANADA COLLEGE

      LCC’s academic program is designed to stimulate intellectual curiosity, develop essential literacy and numeracy skills, and inculcate life-long learning habits that promote excellence. We want our students to become independent learners who can face new challenges and stretch their capacities to think critically and creatively. They must feel free to take intellectual risks and understand that as much can be learned from failure as from success. Our program encourages students to be engaged in their learning processes, appreciating their own strengths and recognizing the areas in which they need to improve. We foster a culture of achievement, where students strive to do their best and are acknowledged for their efforts.

        KELLS ACADEMY

        Systematic-phonics programs teach young children to read by helping them to recognize and sound out the letters and syllables of words. Students are then led to blend these sounds together to sound out and recognize the whole word. While other reading programs might touch on phonetics (either incidentally or on a “when needed” basis), systematic phonics teaches phonics in a specific sequence, and uses extensive repetition and direct instruction to help readers associate specific letter patterns with their associated sounds.

        LOWER CANADA COLLEGE

        Balanced reading programs are typically Whole Language programs with supplementary phonics training. This training might be incidental, or it might take the form of mini-lessons.

        KELLS ACADEMY

        Inquiry-based science emphasizes teaching science as a way of thinking or practice, and therefore tries to get students “doing” science as much as possible -- and not just “learning” it. Students still learn foundational scientific ideas and content (and build on this knowledge progressively); however, relative to expository science instruction, inquiry-based programs have students spend more time developing and executing their own experiments (empirical and theoretical). Students are frequently challenged to develop critical and scientific-thinking skills by developing their own well-reasoned hypothesis and finding ways to test those hypotheses. Projects and experiments are emphasized over textbook learning. Skills are emphasized over breadth of knowledge.

        LOWER CANADA COLLEGE

        Science programs that balance expository and inquiry learning equally will likely have an equal blend of tests and experiments; direct, textbook-based instruction and student-centred projects.

        Beginning in the earliest grades, students are exposed to the scientific method with hands on opportunities for observation, experimentation and reflection. As they move forward through the grades, students are expected to question the scientific world, develop hypotheses, research, test and report and discuss findings using scientific vocabulary. Developing research skills and critical thinking through both group and independent projects is incorporated at all levels. Participation in the elementary Tomato Sphere Project, The Monarch Watch, nature trips, museum outings, workshops with professional scientists, environmental awareness activities, Earth Day celebration, and green school initiatives further enrich the program.

        Usually focused on teaching history and geography at an early age, the core knowledge approach uses story, drama, reading, and discussion to teach about significant people, places, and events. Breadth of content and knowledge is emphasized. The curriculum is often organized according to the underlying logic of the content: history might be taught sequentially, for example (as students move through the grades).

        A project-based learning approach is taken to the social studies program. Students in Cycle 1, learn about their own place in society and demonstrate knowledge in various ways. In Cycle 2 and 3, students compare and contrast geographical settings, significant people and historical events, to the present day. Flexible methods of demonstrating concept comprehension ensure that individual needs are met.

        These programs feature an equal blend of the audio-lingual and communicative styles of language instruction.

        LOWER CANADA COLLEGE

        The communicative method of language acquisition emphasizes the use of the target language in authentic contexts. The approach commonly features interactive group work, games, authentic texts, and opportunities to learn about the cultural background of the language. Drills and quizzes may still be used, but less frequently than with the audio-lingual method.

        Creative arts programs are studio-driven. While historical works and movements may still be taught to add context to the program, students mainly engage in making art (visual, musical, theatrical, etc).

At the High School iPads are mandatory for students in Grades 7-10 and laptops for Grade 11 students. These devices are used extensively in the classroom for research and productivity. Online programs and various apps are used for language support, mathematics and science. Class response systems allow teachers instant feedback of student results. Using video creation apps, teachers are able to flip their classes, sending home videos of lessons to be watched before attending classes.

      Our Take

      Our Take

      KELLS ACADEMY

      Academic-based preschools and Kindergartens are the most structured of the different types, and have a strong emphasis on math and reading readiness skills. These programs aim to expose children to what early-elementary school is like. While time is still allotted to free play, much of the day is built around explicit lessons guided by the teacher. Classrooms often resemble play-based ones (with different stations set up around the room), but at an Academic program the teacher leads students through the stations directly, and ties these activities to a whole-class lesson or theme.

      LOWER CANADA COLLEGE

      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.

      Our Take

      KELLS ACADEMY

      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.

      LOWER CANADA COLLEGE

      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.

      Our Take

      Our Take

      KELLS ACADEMY

      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.

      LOWER CANADA COLLEGE

      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”.

    KELLS ACADEMY

    At Kells we accept applications from both local and international students with average to above average ability. We also accept students who require additional academic support. They should be respectful, motivated, hard workers with a wide range of interests and talents.

    LOWER CANADA COLLEGE

    At LCC we aim to educate the child in mind, body and heart, and as such, admission considerations at our school extend beyond test results. We want to know the whole child. We seek diverse students who demonstrate potential, excitement for learning, and commitment. When we invite a student to join our school, we believe that it will be a mutually beneficial experience. We want the child to grow beyond his/her imagination and expect that his/her involvement in our community will strengthen the school as a whole.
