Everest Academy meets and exceeds the highest Canadian and Ontarian educational standards. Accredited by the Ontario Ministry of Education, Everest offers a unique learning environment that promotes deep and durable learning, and properly prepares students for post-secondary success.
Our full year course curriculum allows for students to properly develop a strong foundation especially in the core subjects – English, math, and science. For the first part of the day, students participate in a focused academic program. This allows students ample time, during the second part of the day, to devote to academic enrichment opportunities, sports and fitness, or receive expert coaching in a discipline.
Everest attracts students who actively pursue excellence in their chosen extra-curricular endeavors and who combine a willingness to explore with a willingness to dedicate significant time and effort to fulfilling their full potential – both academically and vocationally. Everest students become independent, confident, and engaged learners.
