Student Life

Learning and enjoying school life through a

truley balanced curriculum & school experience.

Healthy Living


Healthy Mind  -  emotional wellness and social development is paramount for academic success; which is achieved through personal goals, reflection, communication, knowledge, and positive support by role models who understand the students strengths and challenges. Health is an on-going subject that is personalized and monitored through  daily circles, open communication and personal journals.

Healthy Body - physical fitness is easily achieved at GMA Academy. Daily physical exercise is encouraged through ample free play opportunities during our 2 extended recess breaks and before and after school. In addition, embedded in our outdoor educational philosophy is a large portion of the day spent hiking, exploring and moving around our fields, forests and trails.

Healthy Spirit - Personal growth and character development is the result of hard work, dedication and a positive attitude. At GMA Academy we utilize a student-centered approach to emotional wellness and social development that allows our students to work within their personal interests and strengths, set achievable goals to overcome challenges and helps them to better understand their learning styles, emotional needs and character traits; which will inevitably lead to a sense of fulfillment  in their social life, academics and self confidence - making it that much easier to keep growing and learning

Canoeing and Cross Country Skiing


While we enjoy a wide variety of outdoor activities, at GMA Academy we cherish the winter for cross-country skiing and every other season for canoe tripping.

Both activities are an excellent way to explore your natural environment and involve physical endurance and  personal mental perseverance to be successful.

In addition,  both activities are excellent ways to clear your mind and live in the moment, as the physical action is repetitive and can be done for long periods of time.


Field Trips


To compliment all of the learning at GMA Academy, we schedule several class field trips each term to a wide variety of events and activities as a means to provide cultural enrichment, real life experience, social opportunities and make curriculum connections. Senior students also get to take part in two overnight canoe trips each year.

All costs are included in our tuition fees. Past trips have included:

  • Maple syrup farms 

  • Pottery studios

  • Theatre trips

  • Art Museums

  • Intergenerational visits to senior homes

  • Library visits

  • Lake & Beach days

  • Toronto cultural trips

  • Canoe Trips to Algonquin Park & Temagami
