Meet the Principal

Principal's Message

Education in all its forms is a shared commitment between dedicated teachers, curious students and enthusiastic parents, each with high expectations. It is my belief that if education is approached from the perspective of kindness and meaningful action, great things are possible.

Laval Junior Academy is built on the core values of respect, perseverance and integrity. As such, we recognize that the role of a school is not only to pursue academic excellence but also to motivate and empower its students to be lifelong learners, critical thinkers, and productive members of an ever-changing global society.

At Laval Junior Academy we provide an atmosphere where students are encouraged to channel their potential in the pursuit of excellence. This can only be possible in a holistic, student-centered environment. The talents, skills, and abilities of each student need to be identified, nurtured, and encouraged so that he / she is able to reach greater heights. Students need to be provided with a safe yet challenging platform to think, express, and exhibit their skills. In all instances, we work together to help students reach beyond their grasp, to ask challenging questions and to seek the next level of achievement in all they do – with the staff members being facilitators, coaches and mentors. 

LJA offers an extensive extra-curricular program designed to supplement the regular curriculum. Numerous sports teams, clubs, field trips, activities and projects take place throughout the entire school year giving students the opportunity to become involved in “their” school. Parent involvement is also welcomed and encouraged as parents are the primary educators of their children. Laval Junior Academy has an active and involved PPO and Governing Board and parents are welcome to explore how they can make a contribution to student life.

It is my sincere hope that we can work together to help nurture and challenge your child. As the parent of LJA students both past and present, I can personally attest to the high quality of education that LJA can provide to your child. Your child, like mine, has a home a Laval Junior Academy. 

Sincerely,

 

Alan Simoneau

Principal, Laval Junior Academy
