    Progressive


     

    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.
     
    Accelerated
    The main curriculum accelerates beyond the pace of the provincial one; ALL students do the work of OLDER public-school peers in tangible and measurable ways. This accelerated pace is maintained by the teachers and school, (through textbook selection, topic selection, grading, assignment standards and expectations, etc).

     

    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”.

    HOLY NAME OF MARY COLLEGE SCHOOL

    Holy Name of Mary College School (HNMCS) began in 1964 as Holy Name of Mary School, and it has grown and changed in the decades since. For a time, the school was publicly funded, and while it operated continually through the years, it reopened in 2008 with a new name—the current one—and as a fully independent school for girls. Today, as in 1964, Holy Name is supported by the Felician Sisters, as well as by the Basilian Fathers of St. Michael’s College School, who co-founded the independent school. The vision of the school has also remained through the years, though it was rededicated in 2009. Families who turn to HNMCS are looking for strong academics and values, and indeed they find both. The values that the school promotes are those of the Catholic tradition, with an emphasis on empathy, justice, and excellence. The ideal student is one who shares those core values, will thrive within a challenging academic atmosphere, and is preparing for post-secondary education.

    Our Take

    Our Take

    OAT - ONTARIO ACADEMY OF TECHNOLOGY

    In a general sense, OAT is a specialty school in the way that, say, a ballet school is a specialty school—it brings together students who share a passion, and builds the curriculum around their engagement with that curriculum. And, like a ballet school, or a hockey school, it’s not for everyone. But, for the students that it’s for, the experience can be transformative. At OAT students work and learn alongside true peers, those who share an abiding interest in technology. The core curriculum is the provincial one, though delivered in a technology intensive learning environment.

    Message

    At OAT, we offer the full Ontario Curriculum with an emphasis on math and science. The idea is to eliminate the shortcomings of prior years and truly prepare students for their tough undergraduate journey. We claim that students are here for one simple reason: quality of instructions! 

    Times are difficult and those with a better grip of intense knowledge and stronger character manage to reach to the top. Our vision is to continually amplify the quality of education we provide our students with. We do this by actively seeking additional resources and planning educational activities to bring accessible and inspiring modes of learning inside and outside the classroom. For those students who have had negative experiences in previous schools, we aim to prove that school can truly be a place of positivity, genuine connection, and fun.  

     

    The true spirit of the HNMCS experience is the relationship between caring, inspiring educators and the brilliant, curious minds of our engaged and talented students. We hold high expectations for our girls and their learning achievements, and our community accomplishments continue to make us proud. 

    We strive to shape the Catholic women leaders of tomorrow to “Be the Change” - knowledgeable, hopeful, confident and resilient for their future.

    It is through a rich learning landscape focused on girl’s learning that we not only foster quality standards for teaching and learning, but empower leadership, cooperation and teamwork with every girl. We are a school committed to preparing young women to meet the challenges and uncertainties of a constantly changing global future with a good moral compass.  

    Catholicity, being the cornerstone of our work, promotes core values focused on the spirit and teachings of Jesus Christ that nurture faith development and cultivate global awareness, community outreach and service leadership. We are supported by the Felician Sisters, and the Basilian Fathers of St. Michael’s College School who bring a rich history of faithful service. Our school culture not only shapes the minds of our girls, but touches their hearts while preparing them to become compassionate women leaders of integrity.

      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.

        Traditional Math


        Our take: math approach type

        Our take: math approach type

        OAT - ONTARIO ACADEMY OF TECHNOLOGY

        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.

        HOLY NAME OF MARY COLLEGE 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.

For many students graduating from high school, it isn't obvious, for example, how their math courses will relate to physics and chemistry courses encountered in their post-secondary studies. We value foresight in our teaching methods so that students become proactive learners who accurately predict what concepts and skills await them in future courses.

        Our take: science approach type

        OAT - ONTARIO ACADEMY OF TECHNOLOGY

        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.

        HOLY NAME OF MARY COLLEGE 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: literature approach type

        Our take: literature approach type

        OAT - ONTARIO ACADEMY OF TECHNOLOGY

        In traditional literature programs students focus on decoding the mechanics of texts: plot, characterization, and themes. These texts tend to include a balance of contemporary and “classic” literature. When studying a past work, students investigate its historical context -- but only insofar as this adds understanding to the work itself. Past works are therefore studied “on their own terms”, and not merely as historical artifacts to be deconstructed: traditional literature programs are firmly rooted in the humanities, and carry the belief that great literature can reveal fundamental and universal truths about the human condition. These programs emphasize class discussions and critical essay writing, and aim to develop in students critical thinking, communication skills, and a cultivated taste and ethos.

        HOLY NAME OF MARY COLLEGE SCHOOL

        These literature programs draw in equal measure from “Traditional” and “Social Justice” programs.


        What the school says about their literature program

        What the school says about their literature program

        OAT - ONTARIO ACADEMY OF TECHNOLOGY

        We teach literature primarily through a "Reader Response Theory" approach, where students are empowered to discover meanings from texts through their subjective experience as unique readers with differing identities and backgrounds. Through this method, we enact inquiry-based learning, where students are prompted with questions to help them delve into texts and develop their critical thinking skills. Students are encouraged to become reflective independent thinkers who confidently express their views on literature with clarity and persuasion. This approach encompasses the belief that there is not one correct interpretation of a text, but rather many possibilities. We see our students become active learners, engaged with a text and with their peers through discussion, rather than passively listening to the teacher. In addition to our reader response approach, we also teach elements of literature so that students have foundational knowledge to refer to in their interpretations.

        HOLY NAME OF MARY COLLEGE SCHOOL

        Students have the opportunity to be immersed in traditional literature and the importance of structure and literary devices in significant texts. HNMCS' Core Values are at the root of learning in the school and texts are selected that reflect larger social justice themes and allow students to make deeper connections and ask critical questions about the world while being engaged in meaningful texts and resources.

        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). The goal is use the actual practice of art to help educate students’ emotions, cognition, and ethos.

        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.

Pride in self and school, integrity and commitment are continually strengthened through participation on our teams. We believe that the life lessons learned through sport help to strengthen the Catholic values that will guide our students well into the future.

      Our Take

      Our Take

      OAT - ONTARIO ACADEMY OF TECHNOLOGY

      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.

      HOLY NAME OF MARY COLLEGE SCHOOL

      The main curriculum accelerates beyond the pace of the provincial one; ALL students do the work of OLDER public-school peers in tangible and measurable ways. This accelerated pace is maintained by the teachers and school, (through textbook selection, topic selection, grading, assignment standards and expectations, etc).


      What the school says

      To accommodate different schedules, we offer correspondence courses where students earn credits through online platforms that allow flexible pacing, suited to individual needs. Additionally, we provide evening and night classes for students occupied during the day, or for those who simply prefer to be in school after typical hours.

      Our Take

      Our Take

      OAT - ONTARIO ACADEMY OF TECHNOLOGY

      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.

      HOLY NAME OF MARY COLLEGE SCHOOL

      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”.


      What the school says

      What the school says

      OAT - ONTARIO ACADEMY OF TECHNOLOGY

      We set high standards to prepare our students for success in their post-secondary education journeys while simultaneously nurturing the curiosity and liveliness of our students by encouraging a learning process that is not based on rote learning or dominated by direct instruction. The academic culture we promote is one of COMMUNITY and APPROACHABILITY, where we seek to eliminate the barriers between teachers and students that are often found in the public school system. We aim to do more than simply impart knowledge on students; we aim to build relationships founded on mutual trust and respect.

      HOLY NAME OF MARY COLLEGE SCHOOL

      Our main goal at HNMCS is to develop the whole person. Building a strong academic foundation allows our girls to become innovative thinkers who can draw on their wealth of knowledge and experience to tackle real world problems.
