With all the crises and economic hardships today in Ontario, many parents are so relieved that Signet Christian is here to take care of their most treasured possession...their children and teens. They all want the same thing, a safe place with excellent academics and a holistic approach will embrace and support their children, AND that is affordable! And the location... we in the heart of mid-town Toronto. So let me introduce our Christian School to you. We accept children and teens (K - 12) from families who prefer a Christian alternative.
What makes Signet special? Everyone wants to make their life count, to leave a good impression on the world. In the ancient kingdoms, a royal seal of a "signet ring" would represent the king wherever it was sent. So at Signet School, each student is shaped to truly represent our King. Christian values and mores bring ancient truth to life as each student pursues excellence.
Our teachers guide each student on their journey, through a process of exploration and inquiry through the lens of a biblical worldview. Our strategy is to keep things simple and focused as we keep classrooms small. We favour small class sizes so that every student receives the nurturing attention he or she needs for success. Simply put, no-one is ever ignored.
Signet's academic curriculum, while rigorous at the core, gives support for those that need it. The students get more attention especially great for our wonderful "home away from home" for international students. Here we provide a place to belong and we gather students from all over the world who find friendships that last forever.
Children and teens graduate with the Signet Christian's seal of Honour, Discipline, Confidence, and Kindness. As students embrace these in their lives that makes Signet truly special and a beautiful place to learn.
