At Everest Academy, we are dedicated to the challenge of the climb. Our small classes and expert teachers ensure that students receive individualized and customized education that is tailored to their needs to drive success. Our rigorous academic program includes SAT preparation, daily enrichment blocks, and individual academic support which ultimately helps students prepare for admission to, and achieve long term success in, top Colleges and Universities in Canada and the United States.
At Everest, academic classes are capped at 18 students. This ensures that students are highly engaged and receive teacher attention in every class. Teachers get to know each student and understand each student’s individual learning style, habits and needs. Instructional techniques are adjusted to suit each student. Deadlines can be customized to ensure that a student’s outside schedule does not negatively impact their ability to study and prepare for assignments, exams and assessments. Our online education platform, Edsby, provides each student a way to stay current with class materials and teachers anywhere, anytime.
Everest Academy’s Elementary programs foster a love for learning while helping students develop the foundational skills necessary for later years. Students learn through inquiry-based, differentiated instruction, and a tiered approach to prevention and intervention. At Everest, our unbelievable teaching staff believe in a Learning-for-All approach. It’s a philosophy that we believe can help all learners achieve success in the classroom and on the playing field.
Our class structure allows teachers to recognize individual students’ strengths and build upon these strengths through engaging and creative lesson planning. Students are challenged to push themselves outside of their comfort zones and apply their learning to new situations, both in the classroom and through department-wide initiatives.
Character development is purposefully integrated into classroom activities, allowing students to emerge from the Elementary program as more confident, resilient and caring individuals who are ready to take on the academic and social demands of high school.
Everest Middle School classes fosters a love for learning while helping students develop the foundational skills necessary for later academic years. Students learn through inquiry-based, differentiated instruction in language, mathematics, science, social studies, French, physical education, and arts. Small class sizes allow teachers to recognize individual students’ strengths and build upon these through engaging and creative lesson planning. Students are challenged to push themselves outside of their comfort zones and apply their learning to new situations, both in the classroom and through department-wide initiatives such as the annual Speech Competition and Science Fair. Character development is purposefully integrated into classroom activities, allowing students to emerge from the Elementary program as more confident, resilient and caring individuals who are ready to take on the academic and social demands of later education.
The Intermediate Program at Everest Academy is designed to help students build foundational academic skills in each of the major subject areas – Language, Mathematics, Science, French, History, Geography, the Arts, and Physical Education – with the overall goal of preparing students for the transition to the rigours of Secondary coursework. In Grades 7 and 8, students have a rotary schedule, which exposes students to teachers who are specifically trained within the relevant subject of expertise. While we prepare students for High School, we recognize the transitional and formative nature of the Intermediate years. As a result, students begin their day with a homeroom teacher and then loop back to that same teacher during the end of day for an Enrichment block – a period that focuses on the learning skills and work habits necessary for academic success. This unique structure allows students to have their day start and end with a teacher who understands each student’s strengths and needs.
Everest Academy’s Secondary academic program focuses on the development of the skills necessary to be successful at the post-secondary level, regardless of where that might take our student-athletes.
Our small class sizes allow staff to focus on the development of key areas, above and beyond the curriculum, including responsibility, accountability, and self-advocacy. These important traits have been proven to contribute to the success of our students upon graduation.
Everest Academy teachers create a classroom environment that is nurturing and enjoyable, while risk-taking is encouraged. All the while, a high academic standard is maintained. Our Secondary School program is Ontario Ministry of Education accredited, which includes a rigorous inspection process to ensure adherence to provincial standards.
Everest Academy prides itself on helping our students reach their academic and athletic potential. For many of our student-athletes, the realization of their athletic and academic goals is represented by playing their sport with the support of a scholarship program at the collegiate level. At Everest Academy, we are committed to guiding you and your family through the process of accessing the best possible educational and athletic opportunities here in Canada, as well as the United States, and gaining access to as many scholarship opportunities as possible. In order to help you access these opportunities, we have developed a Guidance Program aimed at preparing students for a seamless transition from Everest Academy to the University that is the best academic and athletic fit for you. Coaches also help families through the recruitment process, offering references and support through each step of the communication process between a student-athlete and their prospective University and coach.
