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 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 Value 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.

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 all” approach does not work for everyone. This allows us to guide our boys to become self-motivated, independent learners.

We are More than Just Teachers

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 boy’s approach to learning as they feel heard and understood. We encourage our older boys, who have been mentored themselves, to act as mentors for our younger students. Through this approach, we build self-esteem and character.

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.
