At UMCA Rich Tree Academy, we focus on providing students from kindergarten through high school with an enriched learning experience. As one of the top private secondary schools near Vaughan, Ontario, our professional staff focuses on preparing your child for the world ahead, including attending a college or university of their choice.
At UMCA, our focus is on teaching children to learn. Through our secondary school programs, we encourage students to develop a solid work ethic that provides them with the foundation for success throughout life.
One of the sayings we use at UMCA is, “Leaders do not create followers, they create more leaders.” This is our goal, to help students to become future leaders as they move forward in life.
Attending our private secondary school provides several advantages to students and parents. UMCA Rich Tree Academy offers both in person and online learning and continues to focus on individualized student learning and growth, allowing students to earn an Ontario Secondary School Diploma with the required 30 credits. We also administer the OSSLT (Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test), which is mandatory for graduation across the province.
In addition to the 18 compulsory credits, our secondary students have the freedom to choose from a wide range of elective credits. These credits can be earned through in-person courses on the campus, our online courses, or a combination of both options.
Each of our secondary students complete 40 hours of community involvement over their four years of high school. Our students volunteer in a number of organizations and events, and we are always happy to see their achievements. These hours develop an understanding of the importance of civic responsibility while also allowing our students to develop their leadership and communication skills in real-world applications. Graduates of our programs have gone on to receive scholarships and recognition for their volunteer work in the community.
As one of the top private secondary schools near Vaughan, Ontario, we have an exceptional record in the placement of our graduates in top universities and colleges across Canada.
