Infinity School

INDEPENDENT SCHOOL IN LONDON, ONTARIO

This September, Andrea Loewen Nair and her husband Vineet began London’s newest independent school: Infinity School.

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.
