As the world began to hear reports of a novel virus, Bronte College’s Pandemic Committee took immediate steps to protect the health of our staff and student body to ensure uninterrupted quality education for our students. We have maintained our regular timetable and implemented a full day of interactive classes via our new full day Online Learning Program. We increased sanitation measures around campus and implemented new social and physical distancing policies. Our residence facilities have remained open and staff continues to provide fun, interactive social activities to promote positive mental health and physical fitness.
Founded in 1991, Bronte College has 30 years’ experience in education and student safety. Our Pandemic Committee has met daily since February to discuss plans for the school moving forward, while keeping in accordance to government regulations. Bronte College has had zero cases of COVID-19 amongst our staff or students. We plan to welcome new students to campus for the 2020-2021 school year, while ensuring our safety protocols, including physical distancing, proper hand washing, and sanitization are in effect.
Should the government mandate a renewed lockdown during the 2020-2021 school year, we will immediately resume an interactive full day of classes for students via the Online Learning Program. Our Guidance team will work with all students individually and will assist with university applications, the Business Office will continue to support students to renew study permits or visas online. Our Health Insurance will cover any student who becomes ill in Canada, and our full-time Nurse will monitor students' health.
At Bronte College, we pride ourselves in providing a rigorous academic program in small class settings. Our aim is to ensure our students' success at the post-secondary level. If required, we will provide that same high-quality education to our students' online.
