In Laureates Academy, elementary students are exposed to an immense variety of different subjects and skills from math and science, to arts and crafts, to literature and drama, to history and geography, to technology and coding, to music and dance. Each student takes 9 subjects each year: four mandatory skills, i.e math, science, English and sports, three focus skills from past years and two novel exploring skills to which they are introduced every year. At the end of the year, students, parents and Laureates Academy educational staff discuss whether to replace some of the three focus subjects with some of exploring candidate subjects or to keep the same suit of focus subjects. The focus subjects may or may not be the same as mandatory ones. In this way, students will have an opportunity to learn new subjects and shape their education path based on their old and new interests.
Using Laureates Academy unique educational system, elementary students will have eight years to get to know and develop their own interests, potentials and skills so that upon entry to high school, they can make a smart choice for their educational and career paths. The high school education is more directed by Ontario Curriculum. However, with the knowledge gained in elementary school, students parents and educational staff will have a better insight over exact stream of subjects to choose.
Our high school system is focused on the very interests and potentials of each individual student to maximize his/her educational efficiency.
