About North 44° Academy:

We are the continuation of Guelph Outdoor Preschool and have expanded into the primary/junior grades (North 44° Academy).

These children have a genuine love for the natural world around them and have a passion for learning.

We use our outdoor classroom daily, as much as possible—600 beautiful acres at Ignatius Jesuit Centre. Our goal is to help the children fall in love with learning and reach their full potential. To bring the curriculum to life we use experiential, inquiry-based, mastery learning and traditional evidence-based practices to help children achieve their academic goals. Being outside daily allows the children to develop an informed and compassionate connection with the environment around them. Organized, attentive and flexible teachers support children with their learning. Please visit our website for more information.
