We Are Different

About Us

Grace Before Grades

We Are Different

We are not a traditional school. We are different “by design”. 

We are committed to designing and refining a learning community that truly values community, compassion, respect, honesty, communication, connection, excellence, innovation, creativity, perseverance, humour and resilience.  

We believe that modelling these values is of the utmost importance in our current cultural climate, especially when the actions of many educational systems are contradictory. We believe people are more important than policies. We believe in parental choice in education. We believe that students learn best when they feel safe and loved.   

We Are Different

If you share our values and beliefs, it would be our honour and privilege to provide you with more information about how the learning centre is different “by design”.

Relationships before rigor.  Grace before grades.  Patience before programs.  Love before lessons.”
