A K-12 university preparatory school that embraces rigorous Academics with Arts, Athletics, and Community Service. Established in 2000, Southpointe is an independent university preparatory school for Grades K-12 that is characterized by passionate teaching, open-mindedness and a warm community atmosphere. In the classroom, our teachers provide the inspiration and support that enable students to learn, lead and succeed. Southpointe is an authorized International Baccalaureate World School. We offer the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) and Middle Years Programme (MYP). IB World Schools share a common philosophy – a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education – that we believe is important for our students. The IB provides a framework of learning that encourages students to become creative, critical and reflective thinkers. Students are intellectually challenged and encouraged to make connections between their studies and the global world. Our senior students are offered the College Board’s Advanced Placement (AP) Capstone Programme in Grades 11-12. By focusing on critical thinking, collaborative problem solving, and research skills, the AP Capstone Programme prepares students for college and beyond. Southpointe Academy has always sought to expand the boundaries of what is possible, enhancing its curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities for students. The Project Discover outdoor education programme develops self-reliance, decision-making, leadership and respect for our natural environment. The school’s international partnerships allow for student visits and exchanges around the world. From its local, community-oriented origins, it has grown to develop a truly global educational vision. Today, Southpointe Academy remains committed to its founding mandate as a university preparatory school. Since 2005, its graduates have graced the halls of some of the most renowned and prestigious post-secondary institutions in Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom.
