Head of Secondary Welcome

The Secondary School at Westlake Academy is comprised of grades 7-12 and encompasses two programs of the International Baccalaureate. Students in grades 7-10 are in enrolled in The Middle Years Programme and students in grades 11-12 are enrolled in The Diploma Programme. More information on each program can be found on our website under the International Baccalaureate link. Both courses of study rely on guided inquiry to develop students into thinkers as well as learners and are designed to broaden their experience to include an International perspective in order to prepare them to become citizens of a global society. Assessments are criterion based and are constructed to focus on the cognitive process rather than rote learning. Community service is also an important part of the Secondary School and both programs have community service requirements that are part of our philosophy that we all have a pastoral duty to one another.

In addition to our academic programs, the Secondary School offers a number of sports, after school activities and extra-curricular activities. These opportunities continue to grow as the school itself expands and more information can be found on our website under Athletics and Extra Curricular Activities.

Students enrolled in the Secondary School are engaged in a challenging but rewarding curriculum and an environment that encourages personal responsibility and development.  We welcome you to explore this website and come visit us to learn more about Westlake Academy and all that it has to offer.
