Academic focus and philosophy

Educational philosophy and approach to learning Our curriculum is classical in that we appreciate the developmental stages of our students and use that understanding when making important curriculum decisions. In the elementary years the focus is on developing a strong foundation in phonics, reading comprehension, writing, spelling, penmanship, grammar, composition, math concepts and math facts. We believe it is important for our students to learn about our world through religion, science and history and have a strong foundation in the arts.

Parent involvement details We send out a weekly newsletter that contains school news and information as well as updates from every teacher in the school regarding the content being covered that week. All parents are also welcome to contact teachers and administrators in person, or through email or phone call. Our tight-knit community allows for both informal and formal check-ins on a frequent basis.
Approach to addressing and preventing bullying As Catholics, we believe that everyone is created by God and loved by God. As followers of Jesus, we are called to value other people’s dignity and to treat them with respect just as Jesus did. Bullying of any kind goes against our call to be like Jesus and it is never acceptable. Mount Royal Academy is committed to providing all students with a safe school environment in which all members of its community are treated with respect. Our detailed policy can be obtained by contacting the school.
