WE ARE SERIOUS ABOUT CURRICULUM
Delano Academy has a reputation for its strong curriculum.
The Ontario Ministry Curriculum Expectations act as the foundation for learning.
Then the curriculum is enhanced with an IB worldview, giving our students a head start.
We embrace a changing world in education.
Delano is a place of rigorous curriculum standards, worldly education aligning itself with the prestigious International Baccalaureate-IB world school standards.
Gifted learners feel challenged with richer learning opportunities that support their unique learning profile. Our natural teaching lends well to gifted learners with greater opportunities for higher level critical thinking, problem solving, design thinking and global mindedness.
Delano is a place where students learn that anything is possible.
We prepare students for life-long learning.
We prepare gifted students to 'learn how to learn', not simply how to 'rote learn' and pass a test.
At Delano we educate gifted students for a future that they haven't dreamed of yet.
