Our Vision

For all students to learn to their full potential

Balsam Academy seeks to educate and nurture its students and to help them maximize their potential. To attain this goal, the School provides a challenging and rigorous set of academic and extracurricular programs within a caring and supportive environment. Students are encouraged to test and learn about themselves, to develop a concern for others and to grow intellectually, physically, socially and emotionally.


Our Mission


Educate every student to be a responsible, productive citizen

Balsam Academy seeks to foster a capacity in each individual for clear and creative thought. The School encourages students to understand that learning is a lifelong endeavour that is valuable.

Balsam Academy seeks a diverse student body and fosters respect for individual and cultural differences. Each student is encouraged to strive for self-esteem and confidence and to be respectful of others. In addition, students learn that they must be responsible for their actions and for the decisions that they make.

In its role as a college preparatory school, Balsam Academy emphasizes and prepares its students for leadership in a variety of fields and endeavours. To accomplish this task, the School offers programs and activities that encourage excellence. The School also maintains an outstanding faculty that represents both high scholarship and a deep concern for the total development of the individual.

True to the mission of the school, we strive to turn consumers of knowledge into producers of knowledge in a manner that is both socially responsible and intellectually rewarding. The value and potential of each student remain the core of our very existence, in academic, artistic or athletic pursuits. We are as ethnically, racially, and socio-economically diverse as we are in our curriculum and instructional experiences.
