Academics Overview

The future begins here

Trillium School provides enriched and rigorous academic programs in a nurturing and stimulating learning environment that prepare students for future success. Our academic programs meet and exceed the expectations of Ontario Ministry of Education. All courses are university-preparatory and are at the advanced level.

Our goal is to challenge the whole child academically, emotionally, and physically, to develop and instill in our students the knowledge, attributes, values, confidence and courage to be successful in post-secondary education and beyond, and to empower them to develop into academically vibrant, ethical, responsible, and empathetic global citizens who can make a difference in the local and global community.

Trillium School students are supported by faculty with outstanding experience and credentials in their fields, as well as a passion for education. Classes are small with a student-faculty ratio of 7:1 and faculty members are available to work with students one-on-one and in small groups. Our faculty foster nurturing, stimulating, and rigorous learning environments where students can develop their critical thinking and problem solving, actively participate in cross-discipline learning, and gain a deep understanding of each subject area.

Students are expected to participate at their optimum level from the moment they join Trillium. Students are encouraged to show initiative and challenge themselves to reach their full potential. Our students not only develop strong academic skills, but they develop social and cultural consciousness, leadership skills and global competencies in order to contribute to the world in a meaningful way.
