What Howlett Academy says..
Howlett Academy is a co-educational school for JK to Grade 8. Accountability, Integrity, Teamwork, Innovation, Creativity and Energy are our core values. Our curriculum is integrated, relevant, engaging and inspires intellectual curiosity. It comprises the sciences, mathematics, French, music, social sciences, humanities, arts, personal fitness and lifestyle choices. Upon graduation, our students move on to the schools of their choice with knowledge and skills that position them as confident learners.
Howlett Academy’s academic programs prepare our students for higher order thinking while ensuring they have many opportunities to develop their confidence and self-esteem. Each student develops at a slightly different pace, creating a need for fluid age groupings and an education plan that is tailored towards his or her cognitive, social and emotional needs. If the student is ahead or needs additional help, the education plan will be adjusted accordingly. As the student masters different disciplines, the teacher will adjust the curriculum to encourage and challenge the student to develop higher levels of thought and action. Individual progress is carefully monitored.

- High-achieving, all-round students
- First rate, enriched academic curriculum

Howlett Academy Philosophy
It’s about curriculum.
Students need a well-planned curriculum, one that teaches core skills in basic subjects, and builds on the mastery of those core skills, year after year, so that they can advance to the sophisticated demands of secondary school.
It’s about change.
Students undergo significant physical, intellectual and emotional changes between JK and Grade Eight, changes that deeply affect their view of themselves and each other. These changes are acknowledged as factors in how they learn and function in a school setting.
It’s about pace.
Students develop at different rates. They require programs that meet their needs. Multi-age, fluid learning groups, particularly during the formative years, and personalized programs enable students to address gaps and move forward with confidence.
It’s about creativity.
By selecting assignments that are relevant and meaningful, students discover that learning is stimulating and gratifying and offers scope for creativity and personal pride.
It’s about supervision.
Students require attentive supervision from teachers, teachers who provide useful and sensitive feedback. Everything is marked, corrected and discussed in a timely manner.
It’s about organization and time management.
Organization and time management skills are cultivated in the classroom so that students learn how to manage the workload and have time for friends and family.
It’s about communication.
There are no surprises. A personal homework journal ensures that there is daily communication between the teachers, the student and his or her parents.
It’s about commitment.
We are committed to providing students with the finest education. Parents should not have to seek support outside of the school to fill in gaps in their child’s education. That’s our job.
