Philosophy / Mission

Ste-Agathe Academy is an English language community school offering instruction in the youth sector from Kindergarten to Secondary V. The mission of the school is to educate, qualify and socialize our students in a setting which values the physical environment and respects the rythm of learning of the individual. With the support of staff and parents, S.A.A. will promote:

  • early literacy and the development of language skills
  • accountability
  • respect of self, peers, code of conduct, community and the environment
  • the creation of lifelong learners
  • the development of goal setting strategies

Ste-Agathe Academy is located 86 km north of Montreal and has a student population of 356 students from Kindergarten to Secondary V. The school will be celebrating its centennial year in 2004 and has been in its present location since 1950.

Parent Participation

Parents are invited to be active partners in the school. This is done through our Governing Board and our Parent Participation Organization which is the driving force behind fundraising for all our student activities and outings. A large number of volunteer parents are involved in reading remediation as well as special projects.


Programs

Elementary: All students are encouraged to participate in a full range of academic programs. These are complimented throughout the year with special events such as literary month, young authors, a music program and support programs such as Soundprints and remediation. Social interaction and physical fitness are also promoted through lunchtime activities, a winter and swimming program, special activity days and field trips.

Secondary: Ste-Agathe Academy offers a full range of high school programs. These programs are complemented and supported through traditional means such as help and remediation and through the school success project which offers particular support to second language learners and students at risk.


Services

Ste-Agathe Academy benefits from the services of a library technician, a psychologist, a guidance counsellor, a nurse, a social worker, and a drug education counsellor. Since 2001-2002 we have also begun working with a career orientation counsellor and a spiritual life animator.
