Curriculum


All CISVA schools follow the curriculum as prescribed by the Ministry of Education. These learning outcomes are contained in the Integrated Resource Package (IRP). The religious instruction component of the curriculum is provided by the CISVA.

All teachers at St. Anthony’s follow the curriculum guidelines set out by the Ministry of Education. We are committed to guiding each student to reach their potential and are constantly re-evaluating our academic programs to better meet the needs of all our students.

We provide instruction in the following curriculum areas: Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Fine Arts, Music, French, Library Skills, Computer, Physical Education, Health and Career Planning. A Learning Assistance program provides students with remedial assistance, confidence building and encouragement. We also offer a Study Skills Program in connection with the Personal Planning Curriculum outlined in the Ministry of Education Integrated Resource Package.

Students are also involved in drama productions such as a Christmas Concert and during alternate years a Spring Concert. Through music, art, and drama, St. Anthony’s has built up a substantial cultural program giving students of all ages many opportunities to discover their talents.

Extra-curricular activities are also important, providing opportunities for students to participate and develop skills in areas outside the regular school curriculum. These activities serve to build community and support the basic goals of our school. Extra-curricular activities include Student Leadership and Service, Choir (for grades 3 to 7), the St. Thomas More Chancellor Music Festival, Outdoor Education (Grade 7), and other clubs as assigned according to the skills and talents of the staff. In addition, we offer many different sports programs, allowing students various opportunities to test their physical skills in basketball, soccer, volleyball, badminton and tennis and track-and-field. Extra-curricular activities together with educational field trips contribute to a well-balanced program.
