Students in Grades 1 to 8
learning to set, meet and exceed personal standards

Small Classes, increased Instructional time
We hand pick our teachers not merely for their teaching qualifications but also because they have natural aptitudes and qualities. With our Scholars’ classes half the size of the publicly funded systems, teachers are able to have performance expectations appropriate to each student’s skill set and academic ability. Scholars’ teachers can then expect and challenge each student to perform up to his/her own ability not just to a provincial standard.

Nurturing Environment, Strong Family Values
Scholars’ Hall is a warm, welcoming and safe place for children to experience the Joy of Learning. Respect, honesty, kindness and understanding are all combined with the development of a life-long work ethic, positive interactive skills and personal confidence. A common sense, age referenced, Code of Behaviour, with little tolerance for inappropriate behaviour is consistently enforced at Scholars’ Hall.

Lower School Leadership Program
“Leadership is doing what is right, even when no one is looking”

Our Lower School Leadership Program is based upon The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People” and “The Leader In Me” developed by Dr. Stephen Covey. It is more than just philosophy. It is embedding the principles of leadership into daily classroom life, lessons, school activities, bulletin boards and developing an attitude within each student and teacher. Our Leadership Program is established within the classroom through simple ways such as leadership notebooks (where students keep track of their personal and academic goals), group activities and artwork and once a week classes gather to take part in “Leadership Time”. This special time each week is set aside with the sole purpose to build upon the “7 Habits” and strengthen our students’ practical skills such as cooperation, self-confidence, problem solving skills and learning to learn from our mistakes. These are skills that go well beyond academia. By providing opportunities to utilize individual strengths and talents, students realize they have greatness within themselves and begin to believe that they can do well in other areas of life. Our Lower School Leadership Program takes place formally on Wednesday afternoons from 2:30-3:30. During this time students are instructed on the “7 Habits”. This is the foundation that will be built upon as students move through the program and be the base for all leadership learning. After the “7 Habits” are taught within the classroom students will have an opportunity to utilize what they have learned and work as a team. Events such as Science Fairs, Art Galas, Winter Balls, building a new library for our school and a garden are some of the ideas the students have come up with to showcase their learning. In addition, students will have opportunities to showcase their learning through Leadership Days that will occur once a month. Weekly, our senior elementary students recognize the leadership accomplishments of our younger students at an Achievement Assembly. This assembly honours a student’s greatness and talents and their contribution as part of a team to create a superior school environment.

Education, it’s not your job, it’s Ours
There are no PD days, no extra holidays, and an extra 1/2 hour of instruction every day, at Scholars’ Hall. We teach every day. We give and check homework every day. Homework is not done in class. Friday’s are “stay-till-it’s-done” day. If it is not done up to a student’s personal performance standard, it gets done again!

Full Year Schooling


Full Year Schooling for JK, SK, Grades 1 and 2 has been offered at Scholars’ Hall since 2001. In September 2009, Scholars’ Hall introduced the full year option to its students in Grades 3 to 6.

Beginning September 2012 Scholars’ Hall adjusted its high school year to match the university academic calendar: 1st semester, September to December; 2nd semester, January to April; 3rd semester, May to August. Each semester will allow students to earn a maximum of 4 credits. Semester 3 will be split into 3A and 3B in each of which 2 or more credits can be earned. 

Come and Continue to Learn while Others Forget !

The traditional school year was first implemented to allow the school children to work on the farm during the growing months. These children of 150 years ago would be busy from sun-up to sun-down with chores around the farm.

No longer is such a school year needed. With 10 weeks, off school, every July and August parents must plan and schedule their children’s time in camps and other activities. These same children need a number of weeks upon returning to school for review and to re-establish previously learned skills.

Scholars’ Hall has, once again taken leadership in the educational field, introduced a school year which allows parents and students a great deal of flexibility.

At the elementary level, it is a combination of the traditional school year (September to June) plus the option to have children continue learning, at Scholars’, all of July and August. This is a huge increase in a child’s instructional time each year.

At the high school level, it allows students to fast-track (earning 4 credits every four months rather that taking five months in the public system). Scholars’ grads will have a huge advantage because they will be able to be admitted to university at two additional times of entry, January and May while all of the public school students must compete with each other for limited spots each September.

This full-year schooling option allows every family to make their own decision regarding attendance in July and/or August as best suits their own plans. Some parents may keep their child at home for the summer; some parents may take their children on an extended visit to family and relatives in their home country for the summer; while some parents must continue work and will want their child to continue in the excellent learning environment at Scholars’ knowing that they have the flexibility to take their family vacation when ever is best suited for them.

The educational advantage is enormous and allows each child to progress well beyond any level they would be achieving in the publicly funded system.

The parent’s advantage is equally as great. Parents need not struggle to arrange activities, camps and sitters for the summer. The whole year remains the same. There is no disruption to the family’s daily routines.

A century ago, parents told educators that their children would not be in school because they were needed at home. Today, parents are telling the educators that there is no longer any reason why children should be at home and not be in school for 12 months instead of only eight and a half months a year. Now more than ever, our children need better than a century old education. Without an education equal to the children of China, Japan, Korea and many other countries, our children will be hard pressed to compete on a global basis.

Scholars’ Hall is listening to today’s parents and educating children for tomorrow’s reality
