Evergreen Academy is a safe, comfortable and inclusive school community serving students in the Southern Niagara Region. We provide an alternative to learning where success is achieved through an inspiring and supportive environment. Small class sizes permit individualized attention and programming that is tailored for the strengths and needs of each student.
When each child receives programming that is tailored to his or her own abilities and readiness to progress, the approach to learning is much more relaxed, and pressure free. Students learn at their own pace, and there is no need to rush them through lessons to keep them in line with the other students. We work with each student to make sure they understand the concepts, and that they can demonstrate the skills before progressing them to other lessons that build on previous learning. In this way, the students aren’t left behind if they are struggling, which affords an ideal learning environment for those with learning difficulties. By the same token, neither are they held back if they are ready to advance and explore concepts at the next level.
Evergreen's Grade School program goes beyond meeting expectations from the Ontario Curriculum. Students will be challenged as they explore and delve into personalized areas of study which coincide with their individual interests. Our project based learning will promote commitment, enhance personal development, and ignite student excitement about learning. Science and environmental topics are accentuated in our unique programming, and we endeavour to take advantage of every opportunity to bring our classroom outdoors, including frequent explorations our community. In addition to programming for learning in curriculum content areas, Evergreen embraces the development of personal character and learning skills to help prepare the students for success in a changing world. Furthermore, Evergreen strives to promote positive student behavior and to set high standards for student conduct with no tolerance for bullying.
Our Stepping Stones Programs, for ages 30 months to 5 years, are day programs with educational themes. You may elect to register for any, or all, of our programs with themes in Math, Literacy, Art, Science and more!. Additional information is available on our Programs page.
The Evergreen philosophies centre on active, hands-on learning where students spend less time at desks doing paper and pencil work, and more time actively engaged in their learning. The teaching will be student-driven and involvement of both parents and students in the learning will ensure that they are receiving the support and education that they desire. Evergreen will provide frequent feedback to parents and students to monitor student success.
The ultimate goal of Evergreen Academy is to see every student succeed and thrive in an environment that is supportive of their individual needs and learning styles.
Evergreen also offers extended learning programs before and after school, as well as during the summer months.
