It is an essential stage in education and required for admission to university


We focus on cultivating leadership skills such as a clear vision, empowering and collaborating with others and leading by example. This is achieved by giving students the freedom to create and implement ideas for learning both inside and outside of the classroom.

Critical Thinking

Critical thinking is the ability to reflect, think independently, clearly and rationally about what to do and what to believe. At Beacon Mile Academy critical thinking also includes the capacity to innovate and form original and logical connections between ideas in arguments and explanations.


Students learn to be responsible through volunteer work that teaches them to care for the good of their community and its citizens. Beacon Mile Academy works constructively with non-profit organizations to ensure that civic-minded students improve society and its culture.

Physical and Mental Enhancement

By competing and having fun in different sports and games, students enhance their mental discipline, endurance, stamina and physical strength. These experiences form social skills that play a significant role in the ability to both excel as an individual and work in a team in school and at work.

Personal Capabilities

Controlling the emotions, empathy, compassion for others and the building of positive relationships is crucial to working effectively with others and for personal happiness and success. Group work, peer review, peer tutoring, pairing and sharing are just some of the ways in which personal capabilities are nurtured.

Multicultural Acceptance

Toronto and the Greater Toronto Area is a multicultural area of Canada. Students will have an opportunity to communicate with people from different parts of the world, learn from and form friendships with them.
