High School Expansion – 2020-21

Starting in the 2020-21 school year, North Point will be launching our High School program with a cohort of grade 10’s.  We will be adding a grade each year with the plan of offering a comprehensive Grade 10-12 program within 3 years.

We have limited spaces available for the 2020-21 school year so please contact us if you are interested in joining our high school program. For more information about this program, please contact Brent Devost, Head of School.

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.

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 are more than just teachers

We are more than just teachers

We understand that strong role models are key to the mental, social, physical and emotional development of young boys.  Personal connections between students and teachers can transform a boys approach to learning as they feel heard and understood.  Through this approach, we build self-esteem and character.

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 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 Personalize Learning

We Personalize Learning

We extend our physical classroom into the virtual realm by enriching our curriculum with the latest in adaptive software and educational apps, to personalize learning and further support and improve skill mastery. This combined with direct instruction allows flexibility in the learning process with the understanding that a one size fits allapproach does not work for everyone.  It is within this framework that we able guide our boys to become self-motivated, independent learners.

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.
