Vianney Academy was a life saver for our family. My son had trouble attending in a regular classroom in a publicly funded school. The class sizes were too big and he could not concentrate or learn well. He was constantly in trouble because he was easily distracted. As a result, he hated school. After we made the switch, he actually loves to go to school. He treasures the close friendships he has made and truly loves his teacher! Our son likes the freedom he has to learn at his own pace which makes learning more fun for him. He enjoys Science the best as they really get to learn in a hands on way. Vianney delivers quality education with a caring attitude!
My son has attended Vianney Academy since SK. I tried one year at another school but came right back! Vianney is a warm, instructive, fun, student focused educational experience. They teach tailored to your child's learning needs. Karen Uschold is profound in her knowledge, experience and gems of wisdom that she pours into each student and family. The only concern and goal is for every student to learn, develop and grow. And whatever is needed to overcome the barriers, they are right on it to ensure success. You never feel ashamed or embarrassed or that you have to make excuses for your child's learning challenges because the only care at Vianney is that whatever is needed for your child to learn, they will figure it out. The kids are happy, the outings are awesome, the education is excellent.
Both my children experienced attention to their worries and concerns. They were listened to beyond any of my expectations. Coming with an at-risk profile, attention deficit, oppositional behaviour, OCD tendencies, both my children felt they were understood and given the chance to build on their skills, despite their weaknesses. My children were impressed with the level of commitment from the prinicipal and the teacher and support staff. Academic learning was only one aspect of the school, the value of relationship and positive interactions with peers and the local community played a huge part in balancing out my children's emotional life. Dedication and commitment is definitely strong qualities at Vianney, and my children have gone on to form deep, positive friendships as a result. The drive to accomplish academics is magically incorporated in Vianney's mission.
