Effective Learning

Welcome to Birch Hills Academy! 

From preschool to middle school, our rich curriculum blends standard teaching and individualized teaching methods that emphasizes a whole child approach to education. We take the time to get to know the student, we undertake formal assessments, provide a diverse curriculum, and provide a range of activities that engage students physically, verbally, socially, and academically. We enlist parents, teachers and the community as ‘collaborators’ in each child’s development.  

Birch Hills Academy offers: 

  • Preprimary* - a Monday/Wedneday/Friday program and a Tuesday/Thursday program
  • Junior Primary - Monday to Friday
  • Elementary school (Grades Primary to 6)
  • Middle school (Grades 7 - 9)
  • Extended Studies Program and Assessment Tools

Students get the individual support they need to succeed academically and socially, whether your child attends preschool, our private day school or takes advantage of one of our growing number of specialized Extended Studies programs.

Birch Hills Academy students are empowered to become effective learners, learners who:

  • are dedicated to learning
  • have a curiosity about the world around them and how it works
  • can motivate themselves
  • can do the work without anyone telling them to do it
  • learn to recognize when they are learning or need to do a little more work
  • want to explore and try new things
  • will risk making a mistake

Together with small class sizes, highly committed and experienced teachers and a guiding philosophy to help unlock every child’s unique potential, we see the power of effective learning everyday.
