Our Perspective

How we see The Maples Academy

The Maples was founded in 1989 in order to provide a strong core program in the junior and elementary grades, and that remains the draw for parents today. The school is small, with an annual enrollment of 100 students, allowing for a very personal, individual approach to instruction. It was purchased in 2014 by the owner of St. Jude’s and Oakwood, and benefits through the association, including becoming an IB candidate school. Parents are drawn by the strength of the academic program as well as that of the arts offerings, including a robust instrumental music program. Parents are welcome to be involved in the life of the school, and communication between parents and faculty is direct and frequent. The school was founded to provide a welcome alternative to the public offerings in the area, and it’s been happily living up to that mandate for nearly three decades.

Message from school leadership

Mr. Greg Playford, Principal
B.A. (Hons)

The Maples Academy is distinctive due to the weight we place on achieving fluency in language, and effectiveness in numeracy; we instill in all our students a firm practical, cultural and artistic framework, which reinforces all academic studies. Our students have confidence to express themselves effectively in both their public and private lives. I encourage parents to come check out our school, and see the difference a small caring atmosphere can make.
