At TEA, we believe in nurturing well-rounded students. This means that our education extends beyond our text books. We encourage our students to seek meaningful volunteer positions rather than just seeking the hours needed to graduate in order to open their eyes to different opportunities and gain new knowledge and skills. We also organize extra-curricular activities for students, like museum visits and horseback riding, to give them the chance to try out new things, discover new hobbies, and find positive outlets for their creative energy.
Student enrichment activities
TEA is very much like a small, close nit family. We share in each other’s successes, we encourage one another to keep trying in the face of failure and, when we have free time, we like to enjoy each other’s company. Our students and faculty often plan day trips and fun activities to do when there is time to unwind. These activities do not only serve the purpose of being fun; they are also opportunities for our students to get to know their teachers and fellow classmates better while allowing our students to build bonds and friendships that will last a lifetime.
From pumpkin carving for Halloween, to beach side barbeques, to charity runs, to horseback riding, we are invested in helping our students become the best versions of themselves by providing opportunities for them to discover new hobbies, new friends, and new skills.
At The Erindale Academy, we encourage our students to take on leadership roles within the school community. Our student council leaders are chosen by the students based on their merit and leaderships skills and they are the bridge between the student body and the faculty. Our student council plans events for our students, organizes fundraisers during the holidays, and maintains proper communication between the student body and the faculty.
