Our Teaching Philosophy

Summit Academy is unique. Active learning is not just a theory – it’s our practice. While we follow provincial Education and Early Childhood Development outcomes, we believe learning involves more than books. We strive to incorporate many subjects together – so Math and Art can find their way into a History class, while Physics and English can co-exist in a Science class.

This teaching philosophy mirrors Summit Academy’s vision – to produce well-rounded students who will thrive in tomorrow’s world. We encourage investigation and questioning, and we guide each child to realize their full potential, establishing them on the path to lifelong learning.


Our teachers have high expectations from their students, in and out of the classroom. They are subject matter experts but with an affinity for many subjects. They are energetic and experienced, with a passion for the profession and their students.
