Welcome to the Venta Preparatory School website! Established in 1981 the School is focussed on providing a programme suited to the individual needs of its students. All applicants are submitted to a full educational assessment prior to admission, which allows us to create a programme tailored to the individual needs of the students. If they require enrichment they get it in the regular classroom. If they need help with certain subjects that too is provided. At Venta we believe in educating the child, not simply delivering the curriculum. To teach a child the staff must establish a positive personal connection with each student. This can only happen in small classrooms where the teachers have the chance to know each student as an individual. Our mission is to create and continually enhance an environment where every individual student can grow to achieve the full potenial of their unique personality, while achieving their highest intellectual potential. We believe that the arts are necessary to intellectual development and that sports are necessary to physical and social well-being. All of our students take art, music and physical education throughout the programme. Our small residence, which can accommodate children as young as 6 years, is structured to emulate family life. We are the only boarding school in Canada that accepts primary and elementary aged children, both boys and girls. The boarders are supervised at all times by full-time house parents who provide structure and consistency seven days a week. Our supportive and close-knit community of students, parents, alumni, staff and friends make the school a truly special place. We encourage you to explore our Web site and learn more about Venta Preparatory School. We would love to hear from you and have you visit.
