North Point was founded in Calgary, Alberta, in 2014 to provide boys with an alternative learning environment to the traditional, outdated factory-style model that has been in place in our North American schools for the past 100 years. North Point is being offered to boys entering Kindergarten to Grade 9.
Our goal is to create a setting in which boys are challenged and motivated, resulting in a genuine love of learning. Through strong mentors, experiential learning in and outside of the classroom, and technology, we will allow our students to truly discover who they are and how they learn. We believe that every child has a gift and it is our job to help recognize and foster that gift.
North Point School for Boys will follow and expand on the requirements of the Alberta Curriculum. Socratic teaching methods will be utilized to encourage critical thinking and analysis. There will be extensive assessment of skill levels, learning styles and aptitudes, in order to customize learning. The latest in education software and gaming will be used to deliver reading, writing and math skills tailored to individual learning styles and will ensure that a student has mastered each element of a subject before progressing on to the next level. Experiential learning will give concepts purpose and context, while developing independent learners.
