How do we compare to other private schools?

The Element offers an Ontario Secondary School Diploma just as any other private high school does. The Element is more than just curriculum content. The content is the tool that we use to help our students understand themselves as learners; it provides experiences that will put youth ‘in their element’, in school and beyond.

What engages us depends on our stage of development; our programs are responsive to these developmental needs. Choice, challenge and varied real world experiences help our students to know themselves, their passions and their interests, as well as what they have to contribute to society.

The Element’s programs and support mechanisms find the intersection of youth’s developmental characteristics and the requirements of the adult world, thus creating the focussed engagement that naturally leads to personal excellence.
