    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”.

    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.

    Our Take

    Our Take

    LUTHER COLLEGE HIGH SCHOOL

    Luther College High School was established in 1913 as a boys’ boarding school, and with just 32 students that inaugural year. Girls were first admitted in 1920, and over the years there have been other changes, too. Today the population is predominantly day students, though there is still a sizable boarding program. The High School campus completed a $18.3 million dollar expansion in 2014 which includes a new performance stage, three new classrooms (two of which are dedicated to fine arts), a gymnasium and student fitness training centre, a student commons, and upgrades to existing structures. The school also has fully renovated science laboratories and extensively upgraded on-campus dormitories. The motto “Quality Education in a Christian context” reflects an emphasis on the whole person—intellectually, emotionally, spiritually and physically—within a progressive Christian context. The values that provide a foundation for the program are rightly a draw. The ideal student is one who can thrive in an active, diverse school community, and who is intending to proceed to post-secondary studies after graduation.

      Our Take: primary curriculum type

      LUTHER COLLEGE HIGH SCHOOL

      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.

      ASPENGROVE SCHOOL

      Progressive (sometimes called "in- quiry-based") curricula attempt to place children's interests and ideas at the heart of the learning experience. Instead of lessons being driven by predetermined pathways, progressive curricula are often "emergent", with learning activities shaped by students' questions about the world. Instead of starting with academic concepts and then tying it to everyday experience, progressive methods begin with everyday experience and work back to an academic lesson. Teachers provide materials, experiences, tools and resources to help students investigate a topic or issue. Students are encouraged to explore, reflect on their findings, and discuss answers or solutions.

      Some private schools offer International Baccalaureate (IB) programming. The "Diploma Programme" is offered to students in the final two years of high school, while the "Primary Years Programme" (ages 3 to 12) and "Middle Years Programme" (ages 11 to 16) serve as preparation for the diploma program.

      What the school says about their curriculum

      LUTHER COLLEGE HIGH SCHOOL

      The academic program emphasizes traditional core subjects while incorporating innovative approaches and modern programs. Luther College High School exceeds the curriculum established by the Government of Saskatchewan. In addition to the required courses, Luther students must take more math in Grade 9, a second English class in Grade 11 and a course in Christian Ethics for each year of enrollment. The Luther school year is made up of two semesters. Students are allowed to take a maximum of six courses per semester. At every grade level, there are certain compulsory courses students must pass. Students may also choose optional courses to fulfill the requirements for their Saskatchewan Grade 12 diploma. A dedicated teaching staff challenges students to excel and discover their gifts. Our well educated faculty only teaches in their major or minor disciplines, and most possess qualifications that far exceed standard requirements.

      ASPENGROVE SCHOOL

      Aspengrove School’s curriculum is designed to develop the whole child. We apply the curriculum of the International Baccalaureate Programme, one of the world’s most highly esteemed education programmes. Individual attention is at the core of Aspengrove’s curriculum. Through regular communication and ongoing assessment by teachers, a child’s learning profile and specific needs are identified. We set enrichment goals and address areas for academic support, we then review the plan throughout the year.

        Our take: math approach type

        Our take: math approach type

        LUTHER COLLEGE HIGH SCHOOL

        Traditional Math typically teaches a method or algorithm FIRST, and THEN teaches the applications for the method. Traditional algorithms are emphasized and practiced regularly: repetition and drills are frequently used to ensure foundational mastery in the underlying mathematical procedures. The traditional approach to math views math education as akin to building a logical edifice: each brick depends on the support of the previously laid ones, which represent mastery over a particular procedure or method. Traditional Math begins by giving students a tool, and then challenges students to practice using that tool an applied way, with progressively challenging problems. In this sense Traditional Math aims to establish procedural understanding before conceptual and applied understanding.

        ASPENGROVE SCHOOL

        Discovery Math turns traditional math on its head: it frequently begins by introducing a novel problem to students, and works its way back to “discovering” a method of solving the problem. The goal is to ground mathematical procedures and algorithms firmly in their applications, and to challenge students to think critically about how they might go about solving the problem right from the beginning. Generally associated with the “Chicago Math” movement and related Everyday Math textbooks (Grades 1 to 6), Discovery math spends less classroom time mastering established algorithms and more time getting students invested in and thinking critically about novel mathematical problems and concepts. In this sense Discovery Math aims to establish conceptual and applied understand before procedural understanding.

        ASPENGROVE SCHOOL

        The process approach to teaching beginner writing aims to get students writing “real things” as much as possible and as soon as possible. The goal is to create the right environmental conditions to encourage a love of writing and a motivation to write well. With children invested in the writing process -- through assignments children find meaningful -- students are then given feedback on how they can improve.

        Our take: science approach type

        LUTHER COLLEGE HIGH SCHOOL

        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.

        ASPENGROVE SCHOOL

        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.

        Our take: computers and technology approach type

        LUTHER COLLEGE HIGH SCHOOL

        Computers are used in the classroom from time to time, but integrating technology into everything students do is not a dominant focus. Digital literacy is understood to be a legitimate skill in the 21st century, but not one that should distract from teaching the subject at hand, or more fundamental skills and literacies. The idea is today’s students, being “digital natives”, are likely exposed to computers and new media enough outside the classroom: the role of the school, rather, should be to develop competencies that may otherwise get missed.

        ASPENGROVE SCHOOL

        Effort is made to integrate the development of digital literacy through the curriculum. However, this is not a dominant focus.

      Like your preschooler, Aspengrove students are curious – about everything. At Aspengrove School, we help children explore their world. They play. Investigate. Laugh with others. They ask ‘why’ until they really understand and, at the end of the day, they don’t want to leave.Specialist teachers are introduced for French, Music & Movement, Jolly Phonics, Art, Drama, Outdoor Education and P.E. When our children set off from Kindergarten, they are more prepared to ask meaningful questions and go deeper into their inquiry. They are equipped with confidence when faced with a conflict and are using appropriate language to find solutions.

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”.

      Our Spirit of Inquiry philosophy digs deep. It goes beyond teaching facts, presenting knowledge, covering a pre-set curriculum. Our entire mindset and educational framework is based on curiosity and reflection, whether in the classroom, on the athletic field, or in the community. We encourage students to ask ‘how’ and ‘why’. They don’t merely memorize knowledge; they construct it on their own through inquiry. The result: students become conscientious critical thinkers who understand what knowledge has to do with their world.

    ASPENGROVE SCHOOL

    Thank you for considering an Aspengrove education for your child. We are excited to learn more about you and to help support you through this journey. We want to make the application process as simple as possible! 

    Here is what is involved for all our families applying to Aspengrove: 

    • A visit with the Admissions Director or a member of the Admissions team. For this first meeting, it is important for that both parents and children attend.
    • A completed online application form (please contact [email protected] for a link).
    • A non-refundable application fee of $250 per child (payment can be completed online here).
    • A classroom visit. Depending on the grade level, students spend from a couple of hours to a full day with us, participating in activities and classes. Each student is assigned a “buddy” to make the day go smoothly. 
    • An informal or formal assessment. Again, depending on the grade, students will undergo some form of academic and social observation or assessment to determine readiness for the Aspengrove program. Particularly we look at numeracy and literacy, independence and self-management, interaction with peers and integration into the classroom environment.
    •  A copy of the child’s most recent report card (Grade 1 and up).

    The Admissions Office will notify applicants, in writing, of their status within two weeks of the above steps being completed.

    If a family would like to be considered for Financial Aid, they must have received an offer of acceptance to the school. The application process for Financial Aid can be accessed here 

    Aspengrove’s Admission decisions are based on academic achievement (or potential), the qualities of each individual applicant, the determination of ‘fit’ of school to child and child to school/class, and the availability of space at each grade level.

    Please be sure to contact us if you have any questions about joining the Aspengrove community!
