Welcome to the Education for the Future — Today.
HALLOWEEN IN THE VILLAGE is Saturday, Oct. 27th! Come down to Wortley Village to experience the Halloween fun. Our school will be open all day!
The RESULTS are in! The average number of grade levels our entire school progressed for the 2017-2018 school year was 1.42 grades! That means our students are progressing at almost a grade and a half per year. That’s what happens when you let children learn at their own pace. 🙂
ENROLMENT FOR THE 2018-2019 SCHOOL YEAR is on now until our program is full. Please click here to register your child. We still have a few spaces in each of our programs. We are also starting enrolment for the 2019-2020 school year.
OUR NEXT PUBLIC EXHIBITION OF WORK is Friday, Nov 16th at 2pm to 3:15pm. This is open to the public — please email email@example.com if you are planning to attend.
MARCH BREAK ENTREPRENEURSHIP CAMP March 11 to 15, 2019 (open to any children ages 7 to 13)! Check back for details.
2018-2019 CAMPS: We are hosting camps during all of our breaks, which are open to the public. These are great for homeschooled children or those looking for an enrichment opportunity outside of their current program. The camps will be running Nov 21 to 23, 2018, and Feb 19 to 22, 2019. Dates for the April and May, 2019 breaks are to be confirmed shortly. Please check back for details regarding the camps.

Book A School Tour or Try Day
We are accepting applications for students ages FOUR to FOURTEEN all year long (until our program is full). Our school will grow with the oldest children to include high school in the years to come. If you would like to book a school tour, have your child come for a “try day,” or have questions you’d like answered, you are welcome to give us a call at (519) 852-5810. We will have open houses and try days scheduled throughout the year so please do check back or join our Facebook page to know when those will be happening.

The right habits lead to character, and
Character becomes destiny.
About Infinity School
Private School in London, Ontario
What if you were to design a school from scratch, using what we now know about education, children, psychology, and technology? What would that truly 21st century school look like? We believe it would look like Infinity School!
Using the Acton Academy model, our students (we call them heroes!) focus on learning to achieve mastery and competency rather than time-based learning to get a passing grade. In a multi-age, one-room schoolhouse environment, we create learning communities where peers help and challenge one another.
Core skills are developed by each student using self-directed, self-paced methods, and technology where appropriate. We allow students to learn on their own by providing a safe space to try, make mistakes, and by using Socratic teaching methods where we ask more questions than we answer. The learning is organized into projects and quests to demonstrate real-world experiences and provide context and meaning to their subject material. We continually inspire and motivate our heroes through examples of dedication, character, determination, hard work, and the success (in whatever form) that will bring.
Our third year of operation begins next September! We invite you to read through the menu tabs at the top of the site to find out more about our unique program, school calendar, tuition rates, the ages and levels of students we are able to accept, and how to register.
