Dorval, September 19, 2017 - From teachers to administrative staff, from robots to alpacas and chickens, everyone involved in the success of Sainte-Anne's students will welcome the general public on September 23, during the school's annual open house.

The Academy is a course focused on creativity, languages (French and English) and science. It is also a place of learning which aims to stimulate the imagination and nourish the feeling of belonging of children.

Robotics and programming lessons from kindergarten

From kindergarten, the students of the Academy are introduced to the fundamentals of robotics and computer language. The advantage of this type of learning? Allow them to develop their ability to solve problems, be creative in finding solutions, test different hypotheses and work as a team.

Learn outside

But let those who think that the students of the Academy are constantly glued to their screens think again! Taking advantage of a huge playground, which was originally the first golf club in North America, the students of Sainte-Anne spend a lot of time outdoors. At the initiative of the teachers, a vegetable garden and a farmhouse were created on the school's vast land, which covers 500,000 square feet. In the middle of a gardening or animal care session, notions of mathematics, science or English can thus slip in. The teachers therefore combine the useful with the pleasant and make children aware of their environment.

Gryffindor or Ravenclaw?

Since the winter of 2017, the Academy has also set up a system of houses at the Harry potter. The fact of associating each pupil with a large house allows to develop the feeling of belonging, solidarity and team spirit. This organization helps students build relationships with each other, but also with all staff members who proudly display the colors of the 18 houses that make up the Academy. The names of the houses (Robinson, Dion or Casgrain) refer to the personalities who marked the places.


The Académie Sainte-Anne also offers a range of subjects enriched by art lessons and sports activities, a family-friendly school break even offering breakfast, an exceptional choice of extracurricular activities, supervision of lessons and homework all week, dynamic sports teams, talent development, an eco-health cafeteria and a library where it is good to rest and discover children's literature!
