    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”.

    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

    SELWYN HOUSE SCHOOL

    Many schools have changed considerably over their lives, and of course that's particularly true of the older schools. Selwyn House was begun in 1908 by Captain Algernon Lucas, a graduate of Selwyn College at the University of Cambridge. He was just 29 at that time, and he arrived in Canada in the same year that he graduated from Cambridge. He was, frankly, looking for a job. In Montreal, he found one, namely teaching seven boys. To say that the school has come a long way since it was founded is as much an understatement as you could ever hope to find. A visitor to Selwyn House today is impressed in all sorts of ways, and rightly so. The school is home to an exceptional academic program, and despite having begun its life in Lucas' apartment, is now housed in the kind of buildings that Lucas could only have dreamed of. The school participates in the full range of traditions, and has in turn gained notice well beyond the city of Montreal. (It even plays a role in two classics of Canadian literature, Mordecai Richler's Jacob Two Two Meets the Hooded Fang and Barney's Version.) The alumni of Selwyn House include, literally, titans of industry, including the Bronfmans and the Molsons, lawyers, entrepreneurs, and the philosopher Charles Taylor, among many other notable Canadians, past and present.

    VAUGHAN COLLEGE PRIVATE SCHOOL

    Vaughan College was founded in 2009 in order to provide a vibrant, robust preparation for success in post-secondary studies. The core academics are key, as they should be, though so is an attention to facility in their application, within specific disciplines, and as applied across the curriculum. The student body is smaller than the mean, allowing a very close-knit learning environment with a high level of teacher-student engagement. The atmosphere itself is a draw, one in which social currency is gained in part through academic achievement—all students arrive academically oriented, and therefore enter a community of learners that are all of a like mind. The program seeks to develop values as well as a global perspective, which is also a draw. The ideal student is one able to thrive in a challenging learning environment, and able to grow into a sense of responsibility for their learning.

    Message

    At Selwyn House, we pride ourselves on preparing young men to be respectful, resilient and hard working. We want them to pursue fulfilled, balanced and purposeful lives while always being true to themselves, true to others, true to their school and true to the world.

    Nous offrons un programme de formation générale à la fois chargé, sans toutefois être rigide, stimulant et approprié, tout en faisant parallèlement preuve d’une grande souplesse. Nous tentons de constamment maintenir un équilibre entre les études, l’athlétisme, les arts, la croissance sociale, et le développement spirituel et affectif. En même temps, nous voulons que nos étudiants embrassent le patrimoine de Montréal et du Québec, tout en se préparant à s'engager avec le Canada et le monde tout au long de leur vie.

    Our culture is one of excellence in all areas, and this ideal is clearly demonstrated each and every day by our wonderful faculty. They are true professionals, and together with our students and their parents, form a strong and caring community where each student’s strengths are recognized and celebrated.

    A Selwyn House graduate is a young man who cares. He is prepared academically, he is a lifelong learner, and he has developed a true sense of self-awareness.

    Nous croyons que nous pouvons amener votre fils à relever les défis du 21e siècle et à apporter une contribution importante et précieuse à la société.

    I encourage you to visit our school and to discover for yourself the unique qualities of the Selwyn House experience. It remains impressive.

     

    Come to us with enthusiasm, dedication and a few years of your time, and we will provide you the foundation to thrive in the world beyond school by unlocking your true potential.

    Preparing for secondary school can be a very exciting time. It can also be a time when students feel nervous and unsure about the change. At Vaughan College Private School, we encourage students to become more personally responsible for their learning. This is a great opportunity as well as a great responsibility. However, students do not do it alone. Vaughan College Private  School offers a personalized and progressive learning environment with a faculty dedicated to preparing students for the challenges of the future. Our school values focus on instilling within each student the vision, courage and skills to make their community greater, better and more beautiful than they discovered it.

    The aim of Vaughan College Private School is to guide our young people toward lives of greater fulfillment. The strength of our school is in our clear values and principles. We firmly believe each person has a capacity for goodness and has the responsibility to attain that goodness. By creating an exciting and challenging learning environment built on trust and respect, we believe we can encourage every student to reach beyond what he or she thought possible.

    Again, the Vaughan College faculty would like to welcome all students and their families to a year of academic excellence.

    Sincerely,

    Vaughan College Principal

      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.

      SELWYN HOUSE SCHOOL

      At Selwyn House School, we are proud of our strong and enriched academic program. We challenge students to learn, to study, and to read, write and think well. We do this in an environment targeted to boys’ education through hands-on and action-oriented activities. We understand boys and how they learn best. As a small school, the opportunities to contribute are great. We have an inclusive atmosphere where students develop positive attitudes to participation, personal performance, teamwork, and fair play. In all grades, students study the French language in addition to another subject in French. The faculty values and encourages learning and experiences in French. At Selwyn House School, students learn to think critically and to express themselves clearly in both languages. They will conduct and analyze experiments, solve math problems, learn to make mathematical conjectures, read contemporary and classic novels, write critical essays, discuss current events, and debate political and social issues. Selwyn House School provides an excellent academic program that is supplemented with exceptional athletic, artistic, and experiential education.

      VAUGHAN COLLEGE PRIVATE SCHOOL

      A well-rounded education is about more than just classes and books. That’s why we balance academic knowledge, creative arts, and critical thinking skills that provide a more complete understanding of the world. Integrated and engaged learning supports the intellectual, social, cultural, and practical development of the child. Our goal is to make a positive difference in the communities we touch. Our students are instilled with a sense of purpose, social awareness, and a desire for lifelong learning that makes them active and valuable members of society. In the years that students spend in the upper school, VC offers an extensive academic curriculum combined with athletic and arts programs, to help them develop leadership skills and an innovative classroom experience to develop their interest and cultivate their abilities necessary for future success. Our academic program extends beyond the Ontario provincial program to help students gain thorough and in-depth learning with improved understanding.

      Our early French Immersion Kindergarten builds upon the belief that young children acquire a second language with ease and are able to use the language as a means of communicating their ideas, feelings, and opinions in an authentic environment. The program is designed to help students learn about themselves and interact effectively and appropriately with others. It provides a solid preparation for Grade One. Class size is from 12 to 15 students per class. English language activities take place daily. Physical education is taught six times per 10-day cycle (40-minute periods). Children regularly visit the library and computer labs.

      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”.

    The Admissions Office seeks students who will contribute to the school and who will also be able to thrive in our program. The Director of Admissions and the members of the admissions committee who interview the candidate and his parents place equal weight on the candidate’s previous school record, the impression a candidate projects in the interview, and the results of the admissions entrance tests.
