At Gradale Academy, we focus on situational-based learning to help students make daily connections with nature. Our coupling of strong academics with a unique environment makes it the ideal private school for your child to learn and prosper. It is through these techniques that we develop confidence and self-esteem; the true meaning behind a successful learner. 

Founded in 2000, Gradale Academy prides itself on providing a warm and intimate setting which enables each child to meet his/her potential in a learning enriched environment. Our dedicated staff are enhanced by specialist teachers in music, art, drama, French and physical education. We are a community based program that enables your child to grow and develop with us from Junior Kindergarten through to Grade 6.

All students are given the opportunity to learn at their own level by providing individual attention from qualified teachers. Each student learns independence, self-confidence and a strong self-worth with advanced language and social skills.


What Parents are saying about Gradale Academy:


"My son attending Gradale is one of the best decisions I have ever made for him. He is doing so well - and loves learning there. Intimate classes - great teachers, and lots of outside time. So happy they have expanded!"
-Kim P.  
 "My son loves the fact that he gets to be outdoors almost every day. The low student to teacher ratio has allowed him to blossom and flourish in an intimite setting. Every day he comes home with stories of new experiences and adventures. It is so wonderful to see his excitement for the everyday adventure Gradale provides!"
-Daniel C.



Gradale Academy at the Evergreen Brick Works

"Imagine your child learning and exploring indoor and outdoors."

We believe that children have an educational advantage if they are closer to nature. The Evergreen Brick Works surrounds the school with a natural environment unlike any other school in Toronto or the GTA, creating a truly unique landscape for your child to develope in. 

Gradale's access to the forest-like setting offers numerous outdoor learning opportunities and can foster a life-long appreciation for nature.

The Brick Works is a year-round destination for learning, collaboration and fun, celebrating the themes of nature, culture and community. It is located just off of the Bayview extension on the west side of Rosedale. A free shuttle bus runs hourly to and from Broadview station.
