To become a world leader in online high school education and to become an integral part of our student's educational experience.
Ontario eSchool's mission is to inspire our students to be effective communicators, critical and creative thinkers, collaborate with others and become life long learners in full awareness of themselves within a global community.
Our curriculum focuses on helping learners acquire a set of broadly applicable skills that they can apply accordingly to whatever challenges they might face in their lives and careers. Students’ high school years should principally be about learning how to learn and acquiring the competencies they need in order to do that effectively. Learning is no longer just a means of acquiring information; instead, teaching and learning methods – which have always been an important consideration in education – become more important than ever.
Education is a lifelong journey
Our teacher supported courses assist and encourage students in the process of learning. In the high school courses that we envision, this will not often involve simply giving information to the learners for them to memorize. Instead, Ontario eSchool will invest most of their time and energy in creating the optimal conditions in which students make connections that constitute their own learning. This is a subtle, but important, shift that Ontario eSchool endeavours to incorporate in all their courses.
Our goal is to prepare our students to reach their full potential in life. Students will:
- be lifelong learners
- be passionate
- be ready to take risks
- be able to problem solve and think critically
- be able to look at thinks differently
- be able to work independently and with others
- be creative
- have integrity and self respect
- have moral courage
- be able to use the world around them well
- speak well, write well, read well, and work well with numbers
- care and want to give back to their community
- truly enjoy their life and their work.
