Key insights from our research

  • The big thing about Bond Academy is the holistic education.… The school has a very community-based atmosphere.… We typically attract families who are very hands-on, want a great education, and a holistic experience for their sons and daughters. It’s not just academics that are vital, but also the social aspect.
    —From Interview with Bond Academy Senior School Principal: Phil Davies.
  • Bond Academy creates and develops a well-rounded person that is open-minded, kind, who understands the importance of diversity. The outcome of attending the school is a child that, not only can succeed at the university level, but in their future life, … they will have foundations around a personality that has been developed, that is well-rounded.
    —From 2021 roundtable discussion about Bond Academy. (The quote comes specifically from Olga, a parent).
  • The thing I appreciated a lot about Bond Academy was the extracurricular activities. One of the coolest things for me was joining the band. We started playing instruments in Grade 6.… I was also on the basketball team, and I was on the soccer team, I did football, I did everything.
    —From Interview with Bond Academy alum: Michael & Michelle Hack.

Message from school leadership

Phil Davies, Secondary School Principal

As Principal of the Bond Academy Secondary program, I would like to welcome our new and returning students, as well as their families to the 2023-2024 school year.

Bond provides an inclusive atmosphere that caters to all learning styles, while promoting the acquisition of the 21st-century competencies that our students require, such as collaboration, critical thinking, digital literacy, and social responsibility, to prepare them for their future vocations.

Therefore, it is essential that students, parents, and staff all work together to provide the optimal learning environment for our students, to maximize their potential for success in their post-secondary studies and eventually their chosen profession.

In addition, our Bond Girls Basketball team continues to grow as they compete in the elite OSBA league. The SSAF sports league also gives a chance for our Girls and Boys teams to compete in a variety of individual and team sports.

Bond delivers "education as it should be" as demonstrated by our student’s academic success. Good luck to all our students during the 2023-2024 school year and thanks to all students, staff, and parents for playing such an integral role in delivering another successful school year at Bond Academy.

Be Bold, Be Bond

Phil Davies
