Scholars’ Hall has a classes half the size of the publicly funded system. Scholars’ students are provided a great amount of help, individual instruction, and personal involvement and guidance from some of the finest teachers ever to prepare students for post-secondary success. With such a small class our teachers are able to give individual and in-depth instruction, constant and consistent daily feedback and motivation to maximize individual performance and effort. At this level, our teachers become personal mentors and advisors.
Our students earn their place in the post-secondary institution of their choice – they don’t have to compete for a place! And they do it because of Scholars’ Hall.
When your son or daughter applies to University or College, which response will they receive ?
(a) accepted at first choice;
(b) accepted at second choice;
(c) accepted at third choice;
(d) accepted at all the above:
(e) accepted at none of the above.
At Scholars’ Hall, most often, the answer is (d)*, because . . .
- Scholars’ Hall is a university, Tri-Semester high school with classes half the size of the publicly funded schools.
- Three semesters – Fall Semester (September to December) – Winter Semester (January to April) – Spring Semester (May/June)
- In Grade 9 and 10, students must now begin to master the basic academic skills. A student must begin to develop excellent written skills; acquire the ability to think independently; develop a personal work ethic; learn to be focused and practice a daily commitment to high achievement. Very few grade 9 students own these skills and abilities. At Scholars’ Hall the learning process of “putting it all together” begins in Grade 9 with every student involved in our Leadership Program.
- Grade 9’s and 10’s will earn four credits in the Fall Semester and four credits in the Winter Semester and one credit in the first half (May/June) of the Summer Semester. Grade 9 and 10 students will earn 1 more credit than students in the publicly funded system. In May and June, students will also re-visit their Math and English curriculum to ensure that they are prepared for the following year.
- Scholars’ Grade 9’s and 10’s will be well prepared for the Ontario Literacy Test in Grade 10 and they will be well prepared to “go for the marks” in Grade 11 and 12.
- Grade 11 and 12 students at Scholars’ Hall will be able to accelerate their earning of credits. Students can earn all 8 credits between September and April. The Spring Semester (May and June) is optional and grade 11 and 12 students can earn 1 or 2 more credits. For some students, this means early graduation. For others, it means that they have the opportunity to increase their marks for university acceptance.
At Scholars’ Hall Private High School we offer:
- A wide variety of courses of study, including Philosophy.
- Excellent teachers who are there to teach and who are always available for extra help.
- Small classes mean more time for the teacher to directly interact with each student. Curriculum content will be taught in more depth and each student will have a greater knowledge and understanding which will result in higher marks.
- Each student receives a great amount of help and guidance from some of the finest teachers ever to prepare students for post-secondary success.
- With such a small class, Scholars’ teachers are able to give individual and in-depth instruction, constant and consistent daily feedback and motivation to maximize individual performance and effort.
- At this level, our teachers become personal tutors, mentors and advisors.
- Scholars’ grads will not be forced to “compete for a seat” only in September because Scholars’ grads will be able to enter college or university in January and May when every other high school student is still finishing their 5-month semesters.
- Our graduating students understand that not only must they compete for their place in the university or college of their first choice, they earn it!
- Since its inception in 1997, Scholars’ Hall’s graduates have have enjoyed an exceptional rate of acceptance into a University or College of their choice.
- BUT, more importantly, Scholars’ grads, after acceptance continue to excel in their post-secondary school at a level equal to or greater than they earned in grade 12 at Scholars’ Hall
* Scholars’ Hall has no influence with any post-secondary institution and individual decisions of acceptance. All post-secondary applicants are accepted based upon that institution’s yearly program admission criteria and the number of total submissions to each post-secondary course of study and/or program.
