Academics


Curriculum Traditional, International Baccalaureate

Primary Curriculum: Traditional

Traditional curricula tend to be very content-based and rooted in the core disciplines. It is a structured approach that involves the teacher delivering a uni?ed curriculum through direct instruction. Students usually learn by observing and listening to their teacher, studying facts and concepts in textbooks, and completing both tests and written assignments - which challenge students to not only demonstrate their mastery of content but their ability to analyze and deconstruct it critically. Class discussions are also used to create critical dialogue around the content of the curriculum.

Secondary Curriculum: International Baccalaureate

Some private schools offer International Baccalaureate (IB) programming. The "Diploma Programme" is offered to students in the final two years of high school, while the "Primary Years Programme" (ages 3 to 12) and "Middle Years Programme" (ages 11 to 16) serve as preparation for the diploma program.


What Bronte College says: Bronte College is an IB World School that offers day and boarding programs for Grades 9 to 12. Focused on university preparation, students engage in a variety of extra-curricular trips and activities, varsity sports and the Advanced Placement (AP) program. By satisfying the requirements of the Ontario Ministry of Education Curriculum guidelines, all Bronte students graduate with an Ontario Secondary School Diploma program (OSSD) and have the option of pursuing the AP Program in Grade 12. Committed to academic excellence and individual growth, our highly qualified staff creates a supportive environment where students are empowered to reach their full potential. Having served thousands of students over the years, 98% of all graduates are accepted to top Canadian and world universities.

        The structure, pacing, focus, and tone of the sex education curriculum reflects that of the provincial one, taught in public schools.

      Curriculum Pace Standard-enriched

      • Standard-enriched
      • Accelerated
      • Student-paced

      Broadly-speaking, the main curriculum -- like that of most schools -- paces the provincially-outlined one. This pace is steady and set by the teachers and school. The curriculum might still be enriched in various ways: covering topics more in-depth and with more vigor than the provincial one, or covering a broader selection of topics.

      Academic Culture Rigorous

      • Rigorous
      • Supportive

      A school with a “rigorous” academic culture places a high value on academic performance, and expects their students to do the same. This does not mean the school is uncaring, unsupportive, or non-responsive -- far from it. A school can have a rigorous academic culture and still provide excellent individual support. It does mean, however, the school places a particular emphasis on performance -- seeking the best students and challenging them to the fullest extent -- relative to a normal baseline. High expectations and standards – and a challenging yet rewarding curriculum – are the common themes here. Keep in mind this classification is more relevant for the older grades: few Kindergarten classrooms, for example, would be called “rigorous”.

      What Bronte College says: This information is not currently available.


      Developmental Priorities Intellectual, Balanced

      Primary Developmental Priority: Intellectual

      The goal is to cultivate "academically strong, creative and critical thinkers, capable of exercising rationality, apprehending truth, and making aesthetic distinctions."

      Secondary Developmental Priority: Balanced

      "Equal emphasis is placed on a balance of priorities: intellectual, emotional, social and physical cultivation."

      Student

      "In the four years I have been at Bronte College, I have developed incredible work ethic from a great team of teachers and an understanding of Bronte's diverse cultural community. I have learned how to explore, ask questions and think critically, rather than memorize information. My teachers encouraged me to take an AP course along with my normal courses. I enjoy being a student don because I love building a community atmosphere in residence. I am truly going to miss my time at Bronte."
