(WINDSOR, ON) – Head of the Class (HotC) has been supporting students of all backgrounds and aspirations in pursuit of their unique potential since 2008. Now, in addition to academic support and tutoring services, Head of the Class will provide students and their families in Windsor-Essex County a different type of school that focuses on educating the whole child with individualized programs.
The holistic approach that HotC takes means that students are honoured for who they are and where they are in their studies. At Head of the Class, students remember the joy of learning and the wonderment of discovery.
Head of the Class Progressive School will be a Collaborative Learning Community with expertise from an exemplary local advisory panel. It will be parent and family inclusive and supporting. Learning is always co-operative, not competitive and students will experience some of the lowest teacher to pupil ratios in the area.
Julie Fader, the Owner and Director of Programming of HotC Education Centre, has been an educator for 21 years. She is a recipient of Biz X’s 2014 award for First Class Tutor Who Makes The Grade.
“Research tells us that how a child feels about themselves as a learner is far more indicative of future success than any other factor, including socioeconomic status, IQ, or learning issues,” Fader said.
The school will follow the Ontario Curriculum, however students are encouraged to learn at their own pace. This will maximize students’ attempts to achieve success by nurturing their natural gifts and strengths within a growth mind-set format.
Head of the Class is located at 1247 Grand Marais West. Parents that are interested in learning more about Head of the Class’s current educational support services, or to find out about how to enrol their children for Fall 2015, can visit online or call HotC at 519-966-1774.
