Paving the Way to Success
When we were kids, education was easier – it was based on geography and legacy. Draw a radius around your home, and whatever school falls within is yours. And maybe it was your parents’ and theirs, and theirs. It’s how we met our friends, made lifelong connections, and lay the foundation for college and beyond. Schools were how we choose where to live, where to invest in our children and our collective futures.
And perhaps we are victims of the success of that structure, of generations of communities investing and reinvesting in the locality of education. Because from those institutions came ingenuity and innovation, ambition and evolution. So as we reap the rewards of the way it was, it’s important that we consider what has arrived: A diversity of educational choices that fold into a multiplicity of life paths. Schools now are able to offer educations tailored not to geography or tradition, but rather the needs of your children – specialization that caters to your child’s interests and strengths, affords and attends to their challenges. This generation, more than any other, is being offered the opportunity and privilege to be more prepared for the world than any generation has ever known. Athletics, STEM programs, arts, academics, friendships, and the walls of Southern Ontario’s most prominent private schools.
All that’s left for you and your child is to make a choice and set off for an unparalleled future.
