North Point School for Boys taps into boys’ natural curiosity and energy as a foundation for life-long learning.  A strong academic program is just the beginning – we fuel motivation through real-life learning, digital platforms, and outdoor adventure developing well rounded, self-motivated, independent learners.

OPEN HOUSE

Wednesday, November 27 @ 7PM

Come find out how North Point can be a great fit for your son now and for the future. The program begins with a short presentation about North Point, followed by by tours of the school. We look forward to meeting your family – your boys are welcome and encouraged to attend!

We Know Boys

We Know Boys

Sitting at a desk all day is not suited to the way boys think and learn. The North Point program is a fundamental re-thinking of how a classroom operates. We design environments and experiences that are specifically geared to challenge and engage boys by focusing on their interest in practical problem solving, hands-on learning, and outdoor exploration. We understand that boys need to move to learn and we embrace and capitalize on their natural curiosity and enthusiasm.

We Are on the Frontier of Technology

We Are on the Frontier of Technology

We extend our physical classroom into the virtual realm by enriching our curriculum with online educators from around the world. This diverse digital platform allows us to develop personalized learning plans for every single student, and provides a flexible framework from which we guide our boys in becoming self-motivated, independent learners. We also know that most boys love technology, and we help them master concepts by integrating software, apps, and even gaming into daily activities to tap into their interests.

We Foster Real-Life Learning

We Foster Real-Life Learning

‘Learn by doing’ is our mantra. We draw from theories proving that boys’ retention, self- esteem and engagement are heightened through direct experience. Our hands-on approach crystallizes concepts by putting students in the centre of the learning cycle, ensuring that they are not just passive observers.

We Always Ask WHY

We Always Ask WHY

The Socratic method of continual inquiry and discussion frames our focus and is the foundation for engagement with our students. Our classrooms are not lecture halls. They are forums where we foster critical thinking, self-confidence and language development, allowing students to look for solutions through healthy, constructive debate.

We foster a well rounded education

Although sports and movement play a large role in our students day to day activities, we also encourage their natural, and often untapped, creativity in drama, music and art.
