Aspire Academy

Kindergarten to Grade 8

Aspire's elementary program offers highly structured, small classroom environments that focus on traditional academic subjects as well as social skills, communication, self-regulation, independence and more.  This program is guided by the academic standards of the Ontario Curriculum (kindergarten through grade 8) and follows a traditional school day schedule. With a thoughtful combination of group-based learning and individualized teaching, students learn at their own pace within a classroom.

Functional Academics

The Functional Academics program is a comprehensive and structured program designed to provide students with the tools, strategies and support they need to navigate their lives with greater independence. While core academic skills continue to be important, this program focuses on meaningful skill acquisition and cultivating a wide range of skills that are crucial for everyday life. In this inclusive environment, our team of educators empower students to become more confident and self-reliant, emphasizing each individuals’ potential for growth and independence.

Why You'll Love Aspire
Academy Programs


We really get to know your child.

Before beginning, our admissions team meets with prospective students and their family to determine which program would be the best fit. In the first weeks, our team of teachers and clinicians use evidence-based tools and our curriculum guides to determine a starting point. These assessments give us the opportunity to learn more about each student. They give us a sense of how they learn, what they like, what they're good at, and what challenges them.

Our program evolves
as your child evolves.

Our educators track our students' learning on a daily basis. The data that's collected guides and influences the way that we teach. When the data shows us that our students are struggling, we adjust our teaching procedures. When the data shows us that progress is being made, we know our students are ready for the next challenge.
Data collection and analysis is a critical part of effective teaching. It allows us to ensure that we're meeting our students where they are, then gently and purposefully challenging them to reach their potential.

Our campus is designed for experiential learning.

At Aspire, learning doesn't just happen in a classroom. Our focus on experiential learning means that academic and non-academic skills and learning goals are frequently transformed into hands-on, real-world activities. This helps our students consolidate the learning that is done during traditional instruction and connect what is being learned to their life outside of Aspire. The experiential learning philosophy promotes creativity, self-reflection and present-moment thinking; skills areas that will benefit each student in and outside of the classroom.

Individualized Education Plans (IEPs) are developed for each student.

We know that every student learns in a different way. We embrace these differences and create an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) for each of our students. Our IEPs identify the students' strengths, challenges and learning style. They also detail learning goals, the teaching strategies that will be implemented and how the students' progress will be measured. 

We like to keep you in the loop.

We know how important it is for parents and caregivers to be engaged in their childs' learning so we communicate with our families regularly. Our educators provide frequent updates through a handy communication app. Week-at-a-Glance messages are sent from our Principal, as well as your child’s teacher/educator at the beginning of each week to tell you what’s happening in the week ahead. Students receive detailed progress reports in November, and report cards in February and June. Parent-teacher meetings are another great opportunity for open communication, problem-solving and goal setting!
