    Balanced
    "Equal emphasis is placed on a balance of priorities: intellectual, emotional, social and physical cultivation."
     
    Intellectual
    The goal is to cultivate "academically strong, creative and critical thinkers, capable of exercising rationality, apprehending truth, and making aesthetic distinctions."
    Social
    The goal is to cultivate "socially aware and active citizens, motivated to change the world (or their community) for the better."

    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.

    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.

    Preschool/K curriculum

     
    Montessori
    Montessori programs aimed at preschool and Kindergarten- aged children allow young learners to choose which “tasks” or activities interest them. These tasks centre around special Montessori puzzles -- the essential features of these puzzles being they contain a “right answer” and allow for self-correction. A strong emphasis is therefore placed on learning being concrete and rooted in practical experience, along with children developing a sense of self-sufficiency and confidence. Specially trained teachers act as guides, introducing children to progressively more difficult materials when appropriate. A Montessori classroom is typically very calm and orderly, with children working alone or, sometimes, in small groups.

    Our Take

    Our Take

    LA VILLA MONTESSORI SCHOOL

    La Villa rightly prides itself in offering a very authentic presentation of the Montessori method, and for many families that is a primary draw. As such, students are engaged in an active, hands-on, cooperative environment, where the core curriculum is delivered in consort with a growing understanding of their place in the community of the school and beyond. Close attention is given to the acquisition of skills as well as interpersonal, physical, and emotional development.

    INNUNCO ACADEMY

    The pandemic demonstrated the viability of online learning, something that Innunco Academy was at the leading edge of. The school offers both online and in-person offerings, as well as synchronous and asynchronous instruction. Students can enroll for both individual courses or for completion of the OSSD. The fact that they can engage for the free service is a nice feature of the program, and absolutely unique to Innunco. As such, students are able to dip in and begin to get a good sense of how the program operates and to find the constellation of supports that is right for them. The wide range of course offerings, is a plus, allowing students attending bricks and mortar schools to access courses that may not be offered in their local settings, or to augment their transcripts with an eye to specific post-secondary programs.

    Message

             La Villa Montessori School came to fruition after years of imagining what the ideal environment would be like for my own children. I had come to truly understand the African proverb, "It takes a village to raise a child" in order to provide the most positive and healthy environment for the children to thrive in every way. In Latin, the word Villa (Villam) refers to a farm or village and so it became La Villa Montessori School and the very essence of our community. After our first year of operating in 2015, I saw that having a strong cohesive community between the parents and staff at La Villa being a pillar of support and guidance for the children in our care.  We continue to provide the highest level of care and compassion for the children while fostering a trust and support with our parents. 

    As one of a handful of internationally recognized Montessori schools in Canada following AMI’s standards of quality and authenticity, we are very proud to have this distinction to support and grow the Montessori movement around the world. 

    I invite you to visit us and see what La Villa Montessori School is all about. Thank you.

    Dear Students and Parents:

    Welcome to Innunco Academy. It is truly a pleasure to see you here. Innunco Academy is honored to be working with students and parents of the community.

    We allow all students greater flexibility and choice in completing the requirements for the Ontario Secondary School Diploma. Innunco provides students with additional options for learning, alternative formats for delivery of courses to meet student needs and develop the skills needed to succeed at the post-secondary level or in industry. By combining on-campus and online learning together, We aim to create an environment for our students to critically think, problem-solve, and inspire others. We help students to overcome challenges, develop personal goals and strive to achieve them.

    Our purpose is to educate youths to become the leaders of tomorrow. Our responsibility as educators is to prepare and guide the next generation. We believe that every student is different in their abilities to adapt and learn. Our teachers and staff will prepare students with the skills and knowledge for future success.

    Innunco Academy thanks students, parents, and our hard-working staff for their contribution. We will continue to provide better programs, facilities, and services for our students.

      Our Take: primary curriculum type

      LA VILLA MONTESSORI SCHOOL

      Particularly popular in the younger grades (preschool to elementary), but sometimes available all the way up to high school, Montessori schools offer an alternative vision to the standard lesson format of most classrooms. Instead of listening to whole-class lessons, Montessori classrooms allow students to choose which "tasks" or activities interest them. These tasks centre around special Montessori puzzles - their essential feature being they contain a right answer and allow for selfcorrection. A strong emphasis is therefore placed on lessons being concrete and rooted in practical experience, along with students developing a sense of self-sufficiency, confidence and curiosity.

      INNUNCO 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.

        Innunco combines Online and On-Campus learning to improve students their study efficiency. The following approaches are used in Foreign Language teaching: ·Audio-lingual Model - Relies on students listening to, repeating, and even memorizing dialogues and short statements in the target language. ·Communicative Approach - Focuses on getting students to communicate orally and in writing—in real-life scenarios in the target language. All four skills are emphasized with the communicative approach: reading, writing, listening and speaking. ·Direct Instruction - Based on the idea that students acquire a second language much in the way that they learned their native language—through total immersion. Listening and speaking are the top teaching priority. ·Grammar-Translation Model - Learning grammar through comparisons. This model is generally focused on reading and writing, and oral communication skills are deemphasized.

        A major effort is made to integrate the development of digital literacy throughout the curriculum and in everything students do. Digital literacy is understood to be a fundamental skill in the 21st century: it therefore follows, the idea goes, that teachers should find ways to connect every lesson back to technology. Effort is made to ensure the use of technology is meaningful and advances students’ skills beyond what they would otherwise be from using computers outside the classroom.

        Innunco, as an Online and On-Campus school, combines both hands-off and hands-on strategies. We use the provincial high school computer science model curriculum, analyze potential learning difficulties and adjust teaching for students with different needs. The student will be required to use their own computers, or come to our offline teaching center to finish after class practice, assignment, or projects. Innunco implements a variety of methods in the teaching process, including meaningful learning, collaborative learning, inquiry learning, and etc. We developed constructivist, authentic activities to engage students to learn computer science, from hands-on coding to hands-off web design, and create a supportive and active learning environment for students. Innunco establishes a bank of resources for teaching computer science online, including possible materials, lab assignments, class activities, and websites.

      Our Take

      Our Take

      LA VILLA MONTESSORI SCHOOL

      Montessori programs aimed at preschool and Kindergarten- aged children allow young learners to choose which “tasks” or activities interest them. These tasks centre around special Montessori puzzles -- the essential features of these puzzles being they contain a “right answer” and allow for self-correction. A strong emphasis is therefore placed on learning being concrete and rooted in practical experience, along with children developing a sense of self-sufficiency and confidence. Specially trained teachers act as guides, introducing children to progressively more difficult materials when appropriate. A Montessori classroom is typically very calm and orderly, with children working alone or, sometimes, in small groups.

      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.

      Our Take

      LA VILLA MONTESSORI SCHOOL

      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.
