Language & Culture Immersion
In 2017 Durham Academy Secondary School welcomed its first high school class with students from Canada and around the globe due to parent requests.
While the Academy is new, its foundation started over 40 years ago with Great Beginnings Montessori School and Durham Elementary Private School. Our philosophy of education ensures that each student will be recognized as an individual with unique talents and abilities.
Durham Academy follows the Ontario Curriculum at the highest Academic level focussing on STEM. We are a fully accredited ministry approved school. Our staff are carefully chosen and are Ontario Certified Teachers.
Durham Academy has carefully selected home stay families who have their own children registered in our school. In this supportive atmosphere your child will receive nutritious meals, have their own bedroom, and transportation to and from school. The home stay parent can also act, if needed, as your child’s guardian (as required by Canadian immigration regulations). Your child may also stay with their home stay family during the holidays and school breaks. The monthly fee for Homestay is $1,300 per month.
Health Insurance: Students/ families must arrange their own.
