Our Perspective

How we see Unionville College

Unionville offers everything you would rightly expect from a Montessori education, including casa classrooms and group arts and music instruction, which provide opportunities for hands-on learning and the development of natural peer and mentor relationships. The program also builds from that foundation, including a significant and enthusiastic adoption of in-class technology. That aspect of the school is integrated nicely within with more traditional aspects of the method, becoming a natural extension of the approach that Maria Montessori described a century ago. The school is larger than we might initially expect of a Montessori program, though the benefits of size include a breadth of curricular and extra-curricular programming. Families that enroll here are those that prize the Montessori approach, though are also looking for something more. Indeed, that’s exactly what they find.

How Unionville College sees itself

The school administration answered our questions

Who are you, as a school?

"Established in 1987, Unionville College (UC) is a co-educational private school with a proud tradition of academic excellence. Offering an advanced curriculum with a gifted and talented education (GATE) program, UC inspires, guides, and challenges students. We incorporate cutting-edge technologies through our STEAM lab, laptop program, and coding and robotics extensions. UC prepares students to excel as 21st-century learners while fostering talent in fine arts and athletics. We also offer a wide breadth of enriching extracurriculars and after-school programs. UC’s hallmark is a focus on high expectations, blending academic success with character development. Our Montessori Casa program builds on the Montessori Method with enhancements in music, science, visual and dramatic arts, and more. Elementary classroom lessons encourage exploration, discovery, challenge, and engagement in dialogues. UC students develop skills for success in school and life through activities promoting academic excellence, self-reliance, and critical thinking. UC’s Secondary School program offers a supportive, enhanced learning environment with small class sizes preparing students for top university programs. UC students gain a well-rounded education that promotes a strong academic and social foundation, preparing them to become lifelong learners and committed citizens"

What do you do differently and uniquely well?

"At Unionville College, we differentiate ourselves through a strong focus on individual growth and achievement. No two students have the same extracurricular and educational experience at UC — we emphasize choosing the mix between athletics, academics, and creative interests that works for each student. We also offer the chance to compete in specialized STEAM extracurricular activities like math and coding competitions, science fairs, and robotics fairs."

To your knowledge, why do families choose your school over others?

"Our long-term community focus puts us ahead of our competition — we put every effort into fostering long term relationships with our staff, students, and their families. Our Preschool - Grade 10 structure facilitates the development of long-term connections between educators and students, and even students coming in later grades will see the difference that this strong community makes on their experience."

What aspect of your school is underappreciated?

"An overlooked aspect of our school is the depth of our tech integration and STEAM curriculum, emphasizing not just innovation for reputation but a genuine belief in technological literacy as a crucial future skill. We aim to prepare students for the digital age, embedding technology across all subjects, from math to literature, ensuring a practical and educational approach. This experience is best appreciated firsthand, highlighting our commitment to fostering adeptness in the digital world"

What might families find surprising about your school?

"An unexpected benefit of our school community is the breadth of experience that each student gains from being part of a diverse student body. Our students come from many different backgrounds, possess many unique skills and strengths, and learn from each other through this diversity. We choose to celebrate and foster every area and strength at UC, because we believe that our diversity of experience, background, and interest brings something valuable."

Message from school leadership

Rosemin Remtulla, Executive Director of Education

At Unionville College (UC), we believe in providing a full and rich learning experience for all of our students. 

Our Montessori roots are evident in our "Pre-Casa" and "Casa" programmes for students aged two to six years. These younger children are provided with the best of traditional Montessori education, which is proven to foster early academic development. They also experience more modern programmes in technology, such as coding, and other specialist disciplines which complement and support the Montessori base, providing our students with a truly outstanding early educational experience. 

Our Elementary school programme further nurtures each child's potential by providing students with rigorous academics at a full grade level ahead in core academic subjects. Technology plays a key role in the facilitation of this – SmartBoard technology is available in every classroom. UC students also participate in a fully supported iPad program, in which applications or apps are used to enhance learning. Students in grades 1 to 5 have access to iPads, and every student in grade 6 to 8 has an individual school-issued iPad that is pre-loaded with educational applications. Extra-curricular activities are also integral to the UC experience.  Students access our state-of-the-art auditorium for enriched and comprehensive arts education including vocal and instrumental music, visual art and drama. We also support a full athletics program and multiple opportunities for community service. However, the best part of UC is still undoubtedly our community: a talented and dedicated faculty, supportive and committed parents and, of course, a very enthusiastic student body! 

We thank you for your interest in UC and invite you to contact us to arrange a tour and to meet some of the members of our very unique and special family.
