Principal's Welcome

Updated: Nov 26, 2018

Welcome to the 32nd year of Anchor Academy. We give thanks to God for His continual

grace and provision for our school. As a Christian school, we are committed to providing

education through a Biblical lens. We are thankful for the continuing support of our

families, for the hard work of our current staff and teachers, and for the new teachers who are joining us for this year.

At Anchor Academy, we strive to continually improve student learning experiences and to

provide more learning options. For K-5 we have added a new component for Science

known as Mystery Science. This online resource makes learning Science fun through

combining Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) skills. For Grades 5-9, we

are developing robotic learning camps for students to have a hands-on experience with

robots. More online course options will be available for Grades 8-12 as well as revised

Grade 10 courses that meet the new Learning Standards.

In Special Education, we continue to provide excellent programs to meet the needs of

students who learn differently. With online tutoring, one-on-one support and innovative

technology such as MILO the robot and Integrated Learning Systems (iLs) where brain

functions are corrected, students are able to improve and meet specific goals in their

learning. Centres are being established in various areas to provide hands-on support in a

learning environment for students who need more structure.

A major emphasis of Anchor Academy is the promotion of a “Mission” mindset with

short-term Mission trips. Students are able to earn high school credits through these

Mission courses. Prizes for Scripture Memorization and other contests can be applied

towards the cost of the Mission trips.

Two incredible benefits of graduating from Anchor Academy are the Grad Celebration,

and the generous bursaries awarded for Christian Post-Secondary


Thank you for choosing Anchor Academy and I look forward to working with all of the

families this year!

Stephen Anderson, Principal
