College Preparatory Curriculum

The Banff School's college preparatory curriculum ensures a strong emphasis on academic excellence through all grades.


We promote critical thinking through constant engagement, a challenging curriculum, and positive reinforcement.

Our teacher-student ratios help us to deliver differentiated instruction according to ability and speed of absorption. For example, if a student masters an objective quickly, the teachers provide enrichment activities to promote the growth of higher-level thinking skills. If a student does not grasp a new concept, our lesson plan model allows for reteaching. Differentiated instruction helps identify a student’s growth opportunities, maximize academic potential, and promote self-confidence.

I never thought I would love enjoying school like I do here. The culmination of so many different things together just makes this such a positive experience that I actually enjoy going to school each day! Joshua - 8th grade student
