Why Choose Us

The Chisholm Advantage

The Chisholm experience offers a unique educational advantage over the conventional public and private school environments. On one campus, three integrated services work closely to maximize student learning and success: Chisholm Academy's full-time program, Chisholm Academy's remedial/tutoring services, and the affiliated Chisholm Assessment Centre.

The Academy is more than a "traditional" senior elementary and secondary school, offering a full range of courses leading to post-secondary education, rigorous academics, small classes, individualized programming, and extensive educational support. Our students thrive in the Academy environment, whether they struggle with learning disabilities or other impediments to learning that previously blocked their success in larger school environments.

Our teachers rely on the expertise of the affiliated Psychology Department, the Chisholm Assessment Centre, in developing an Individual Education Plan for each student and implementing appropriate accommodations. The staff of the Chisholm Assessment Centre has expertise in developing programs for students with learning disabilities as well as the assessment and consultation of learning, vocational and personal issues.

The Chisholm Academy's remedial/tutoring services provide further support through after-school and summer school programs.
