Offering inclusive educational programming for children in Kindergarten through Grade 8, Brookstone Academy (Brookstone) is a joyful place of rich and meaningful, interest-led, child-centred learning in a beautifully renovated century schoolhouse surrounded by nature. With low student-teacher ratios students are able to receive truly individualized programming.
Located in Oro-Medonte, Ontario, Brookstone is just a short drive from the city and provides engaging learning opportunities aimed at igniting students’ passion for learning in a supportive mixed age and grade environment.
New school location
Beginning September 2021, Brookstone will be operating out of the beautiful Carley Hall, a historic location that was once a one-room schoolhouse 100 years ago! The facility was renovated in 2012, thanks to an Ontario Trillium Foundation Grant.
The Brookstone Difference
At Brookstone, students are encouraged to listen to and follow the calling of their hearts, free to learn in a self-directed way, at their own pace and based on their individual interests. It does not adhere to a rigidly structured school day but rather allows students to pursue their interests through meaningful experiential learning and project-based activities.
The innovative and research-based Brookstone program is guided by its Pillars of Education. Each pillar has a purpose and every student benefits from these pillars working together to create an exceptionally engaging learning environment for all children. Pillar highlights include, igniting a child’s inherent passion for learning, the development of critical thinking, problem solving and collaboration skills, individualized support for every kind of leaner and different learning styles, the support of social-emotional learning skills, access to outdoor education, a progressive physical environment with options to be up and moving and emersed in active learning, or the option to access the numerous alternatives to a desk and chair, and more! To learn more about The Brookstone Difference, visit the school’s website.
Brookstone Academy is proud to be the first and only full-time private school in Oro-Medonte. It is also one of the very few private schools operating as a non-profit organization. The school hopes to obtain funding to help cover tuition so that all families can have access this alternative education. Brookstone Academy exists not for profit, but to support kids that would benefit from this fresh new approach to education, regardless of their socio-economic status.
