    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”.

    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. Luther College has just completed a huge capital campaign focused on developing the school’s physical plan. Completed in 2015, it added over 40,000 square feet of space, including a new gymnasium, common spaces, and media labs. The curriculum is taught through a Christian lens, and annual events highlight the Lutheran tradition, including the candlelight services that mark Advent. 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.

    Message

    Dr. Mark Anderson is the Principal, along with two other administrators, Vice Principal of Academics, Renee Wilkinson and Vice Principal of Student Life, Shawn Stieb.

    Dear Prospective Parents and Students,

    Thank you for your interest in our school. Burlington Royal Arts Academy is a Private Arts-Academic high school located in the heart of Burlington. We encourage and foster learning in a creative, supportive, and challenging environment. Our focus is on assisting our students to achieve academic excellence while developing a passion for the arts. Our philosophy is to work closely with our students to select a curriculum that challenges them artistically, meets their educational requirements and goals, and introduces them to artists working in their field of interest.

    In the coming years, the Burlington Royal Arts Academy will develop as a leader in arts education in our local area. By providing courses in Instrumental and Vocal Music, Dance, Drama, and Visual Arts, taught by industry experts, students will develop their portfolios and gain confidence in audition skills for post-secondary success. We are committed to nurturing and advancing the arts through inclusion and equal opportunity across all aspects of our programming.

    Currently, we have students attending our school from China and from the Burlington area. We expect more students from the local region and other parts of the world in coming years. Not every student attending our school is solely focused on the arts. We have an outstanding academic program with very small class sizes. These class sizes will remain small as we continue to expand our program alongside a dedicated and professional teaching staff in the delivery of the provincial curriculum.

    We would love to schedule a school tour for you to see our newly renovated classrooms, music practice rooms and dance studio. We are excited about the opportunity that an Arts-Academic high school will bring to the students of Burlington and the surrounding area.

    Please do not hesitate to call me at 289-245-1534 OR email me at [email protected]

    We look forward to seeing you at one of our future master class workshops and having you as a member of our school community.

    With Regards,

    Brian Quistberg
