Other Information: The Thor College campus and modern facility naturally sets it apart from any other school in Simcoe County, public or private. Thor College is located at 4073 4th Line of Innisfil, just 500 metres east of Highway 27. Our 100 acre campus represents the core values that are critical to Thor College, as our vast landscape creates the perfect setting to encourage and stimulate creativity, independent thinking, social and environmental consciousness, and academic achievement. Thor College offers students a rich interdisciplinary curriculum designed to stimulate creative inquiry, intellectual achievement, and independent and collaborative thinking. We encourage our students to test themselves in athletic competition, and to give expression to their artistic abilities. Our school is home to a vibrant community of teachers, staff, parents, and students. Our large, 100-acre campus provides an opportunity for students to achieve an outstanding level of integration between the curriculum and the natural environment. We remain dedicated to the goal of encouraging our children to be life-long students, thinkers, and creators, with a social and environmental conscience. The admission of international students requires a personal interview between the student, the studentís parents, and the studentís Canadian guardians. An entrance exam will be conducted to determine the studentís abilities in English, Mathematics, and Science. The studentís report cards, transcripts, and school reports must be translated into English for consideration. During the interview, the Headmaster will request to see a set of the studentís notebooks. The interview between student, parents, and Headmaster is a very important component of the procedure, as it will determine if all parties have the same educational goals. Consequently, students who join Thor College can be assured that their experience at Thor will be positive, productive, and fun. Thor College offers exciting, collaborative, dynamic and cutting-edge academic, athletic, and social programs based on the world-renowned and award-winning Ontario Curriculum. All classes are taught by Ontario-board certified teachers with specialized qualifications. Academics In the primary grades we integrate technology, group interaction, social development opportunities and individual attention with an ongoing awareness and understanding of appropriate developmental milestones, to ensure that every student has the foundational skills necessary for advancement to the higher grades. In the middle grades, students enjoy daily Art, French, Music and Physical Education classes. They continue to receive individual attention with a focus on more independent work, while still participating in collaborative, group-focused and integrative learning opportunities. In the senior grades, our students continue to participate in daily Art, French, Music and Physical Education classes. Our senior students excel at both independent study and group collaboration. By combining cutting-edge technological resources, strong foundational academic skills, and consistent study habits, our students are well-prepared for high school courses Our students are also at an advantage in that each grade participates in monthly field trips, taking the learning outside of the classroom and applying it to real-world concepts. Thor College also performs a musical production each year in May, with all students in the school involved in the performance, as well as a pageant in December. Thor College is also pleased to offer a full SERT and IEP program, for our exceptional and emerging learners. Private music lessons are also available.
