Why St-Laurent Academy?
We nurture every child’s full potential
We offer a rich curriculum including the arts, music and DAILY athletics for students aged 4 – 15. Students are challenged to grow cognitively, emotionally and physically. There is an opportunity for every child to shine, and we celebrate success in all of our students’ endeavors.
We engage every child
By using multiple approaches during the teaching process, we encourage students to become more engaged in their learning and thus gain greater achievement and joy from our learning community. We encourage student curiosity and self-awareness. We nurture a life-long love of learning.
We are innovative, flexible and sensitive
Our innovative, flexible teachers ensure that all students are challenged and motivated. At our school, lessons extend beyond the classroom, and assessment approaches go beyond standardized tests. Our teachers are sensitive to the different learning styles and emotional needs of our students; they are caring and compassionate.
We offer a safe learning environment
Within our small close-knit classrooms, students feel safe to confidently stretch their wings and take risks, challenging themselves to grow. They learn to collaborate and to respect and appreciate diversity in their classmates.
