“Never forget that one person can make a difference in the world. In fact, it is always because of one person that all the changes that matter in the world come about. So be that one person.”
― R. Buckminster Fuller
Academy C60 is an alternative, independent, ministry-inspected high school located at Avenue Road and Lawrence in midtown Toronto.
At Academy C60, we empower our students to take charge of their destiny. Our students achieve Ontario curriculum expectations, guided by their own passions, interests, and strengths. Along with gaining their credits, they also acquire invaluable study habits, leadership skills, and the power to take responsibility for their future. All learning programs are personalized, so students leave well prepared to take their next steps. They gain confidence from our positive and nurturing environment.
Teachers play a vibrant role in the lives of students at Academy C60. They act as facilitators, guides, and counselors, helping students to learn about themselves and the world around them. They work together with students as partners to build upon traditional knowledge and discover new ideas. Learning how to see relationships and make connections are key components of our courses.
Why Academy C60? C60 is a lightweight, but highly robust, carbon molecule, whose shape resembles a soccer ball. C60 is also known as a “Bucky Ball,” named after Buckminster Fuller, the famous 20th-century systems theorist, architect, engineer, inventor, and futurist. The philosophy of Academy C60 is founded upon the concepts embodied in this molecule: synergy, strength, flexibility, and wholeness.
Set in a low-rise brick building, our facility comprises intimate, open-plan classrooms.
We are dedicated to providing a stimulating high-school experience for our students and to celebrating their successes.
