Exploring New Horizons

Fostering curiosity and broadening the Havergal education with authentic experiences

Our educational philosophy will be inspired as much by timeless principles as the tools of the modern age. Many of the ideas that guide lifelong learning, self-knowledge and wisdom are best represented by the life of Leonardo Da Vinci.

Leonardo’s seven principles for learning still resonate with us today. Insatiable curiosity, experimentation, the refinement of the senses, a willingness to embrace ambiguity, the balance between science and art, the cultivation of grace and poise, and the recognition of the interconnectedness of all things—nurturing these concepts brings more happiness than simply being clever. For the student armed with the capacity for original thinking and a true love of learning, the horizons are limitless.

With those principles in mind, we will follow three strategies for an inspiring and connected student experience:

Breaking the Marble Spell (Junior Kindergarten to Grade 4)

Minds Set Free (Grades 5 to 8)

Exploring the Brink of the Known (Grades 9 to 12)
