Excellence is achieved in many realms at the Element

Our students achieve academic excellence and often surpass Ontario scholastic standards. 2/3 of Element students are Ontario Scholars, achieving 80% or higher in their top 6 grade 12 courses.

Element students compete in the NCSSAA (National Capital Secondary School Athletic Association) and OISAA (Ottawa Independent School Athletic Association) providing the opportunity to qualify for OFSAA.

Element students excel in a variety of creative expressions, including music and art. Element art students develop portfolios that equip them for successful applications to post-secondary art programs and institutions.

Life Skills
Element students learn academic and life skills that stay with them well past graduation. Skills such as accountability, resiliency, self-discipline, and critical thinking, which ensures they can navigate the life course they set successfully.
