At ELEVATE, we use highly skilled educators and evidence-based practices to meet our students where they’re at, help them make gains in the areas where they have been struggling, and empower them to feel confident and excited about their learning again. We work with each child’s strengths and identify key areas where they need targeted support through the collaborative development of a Student Success Plan. These plans are created by the teachers, guardians, and the students themselves.

ELEVATE is designed to provide intensive remediation to fill the gaps in learning that have been preventing students from doing well at school. Students meet and connect with peers with similar learning challenges, allowing them to make friends, all in a safe space with caring educators who understand and embrace their specific needs. Staff involved in the program are a dynamic blend of Special Educators, Ontario Certified Teachers, Early Childhood Educators, Educational Assistants, Child and Youth Care workers, and Orton-Gillingham trained tutors.

Our Classroom

Designed specifically for students with ADHD, students are encouraged to learn strategies that help them self-regulate and advocate for this when needed. This might mean a quick jump on the indoor trampoline, sitting on a wobble chair, bouncing their feet up and down on the bouncy band on their chair, or taking some quiet time on the sofa under a soft blanket.

At ELEVATE, we also recognize that not all learning takes place in the classroom. We connect fully with our community, exploring our environment and the people within it. Field trips are an integral part of ELEVATE.

Admission Process

To ensure that ELEVATE Learning Pod is the right fit for your child, we have a supportive admissions process that allows you to discuss your goals for your child’s learning with our Senior Staff. We also encourage your child to try the program and become comfortable before you commit.

Investment & Commitment

We develop personalized learning plans tailored to the specific needs of the student, from our curicculum to our classroom – everything is designed with the needs of students with learning disabilites and ADHD.

Let’s Learn Together!

Every student that comes to us has a unique set of strengths and areas of need. We recognize that a student may struggle in one area while being incredibly skilled in others. Learning is differentiated for our learners, so that no one feels overwhelmed or unchallenged.
