|Scholars’ Hall is the
only nondenominational private school in KW. Students from all faiths and all
nationalities feel equally at home in SH. In addition, Scholars’ provides
courses of study at many levels of instruction, allowing students, not only
access to the University of their choice, but, SH gives them a huge advantage
when seeking admission to the much sought after applied degrees at Ontario’s
Scholars’ Hall is the only school, public or private, that academically screens
each student, not only for enrollment acceptability but also to identify each
student’s academic potential and their specific learning strengths. This
screening provides Scholars’ with invaluable information, that no other school
collects, and it gives the student a tremendous learning advantage from the
very first day.
As well, Scholars’ is unique in that it practices what it preaches. Scholars’
clearly states that a school, not the parents, is responsible for a child’s
formal education. Scholars’ Hall is uncharacteristically responsive to parental
needs. Scholars’ parents have a b sense of being listened to, of being
respected, of being in charge.
Organizationally, Scholars’ Hall has a well-defined infrastructure that
promotes and encourages a life long work ethic, the development of positive
character traits and the daily expectation to perform to potential.
In the Waterloo Region, only Scholars’ Hall sets each class size according to the academically assessed levels of each student. The result is more instructional and interactional time our teachers have with each student. More daily instructional time, no Professional Development
Days and no extended or extra holidays - all this additional instructional time
gives each student the maximum opportunity to benefit from these very small
classes. Because of this teacher / student time consideration, Scholars' Hall continues to be a small school with class numbers much lower that than the 25 to 30 that is present in the publicly funded school boards. A small
school better allows for and enhances the development of positive
social and interpersonal skills. These skills are so essential to a child’s
future career success.
Establishing a life-long work ethic is an integral part of Scholars’ educational
approach. Homework and study skills, as well as organizational strategies are
all incorporated into every subject promoting and encouraging each student to
develop their own personal work ethic. Scholars’ Hall is the only school,
public or private, in all of KW to provide everyday homework appropriate to
expected learning potential levels. In this kind of environment, students will
naturally progress much faster and acquire a much better educational
foundation. At Scholars’ there is a consistent focus and expectation to produce
work of a high personal standard. Scholars’ Hall takes its educational
responsibilities so seriously that Fridays are “stay till it’s done day”. The
teachers will actually remain after dismissal on a Friday until every student
has, not only, completed all of their assigned work, but they will make sure
that it is done appropriate to the student’s assessed potential.
Scholars’ Hall provides students the opportunity, the knowledge, the
independent skills and the strength of character to be successful in
University, College and in their chosen career. Scholars’ Hall truly helps
Today's Children become Tomorrow's Citizens.
