Your school awaits you!

Furniture has been moved, field studies sought out, pencils sharpened … Welcome (back) to Alcuin for the year 2017-2018!  Our teachers and staff are thrilled to have their students back, because it is for them that we do what we do, reimagining education every day.

Enjoy a 365° view of our Great Hall:

PRE-MED and DESIGN

“What is it like to be a doctor?”
“What does a career in design offer me?”

Experience this firsthand in the Alcuin Academy: intensive two-year programs that enable students to experience PRE-MED and DESIGN before they finish high school. Please visit http://www.alcuin.academy for more information.

 

Back to School

4 days into the new school year and it promises to be a great one! Students are settling in well, classes running like clock work, teachers excited to get to know their students. A very happy beginning!

Starting off our year of Sensei awards is Science, Math and Chemistry/Biology teacher Grace Chen. To refresh your memories the Sensei is a Japanese honorific term meaning "teacher". Wikipedia defines this term as one that is used to show respect to someone who has achieved a certain level of mastery in an art form or some other skill.

Grace Chen earned this award for her work during the summer on our Alcuin Year Book. It was and is a huge job collecting photos, preparing layout, having a good memory, design intelligence and working to a deadline. Thank you Ms. Chen. The yearbook is a wonderful memento of a very good year.

How My Hobby Changed My Life
HaileyC_TEDx
Alcuin’s Hailey C., fifteen, loves to drink tea and read books. To Hailey, “regenerate” (the theme of this year’s TEXxKids@BC) means “to restart” or to “begin again.” Her talk was about how she regenerated her passion for reading books into opportunities in the publishing industry.  It touched on how her hobby and passion for reading has helped her overcome depression.

She hopes her talk can inspire people never to give up their passion or hobby, no matter what people say.  Very well done, Hailey!
