Designed to Meet the Unique Needs of Each Student

Depending on the unique needs of the students in a given centre, the assessment of a new student will determine the most appropriate location for attendance.

Fawkes Kindergarten

The children enrolled prepare for, or learn the same learning goals of a typical kindergarten but in a more structured environment, with daily one-to-one instruction. The program focuses on important school reading and learning including referencing and joint attention, communication, language, skills for independence, ​interacting socially, following group instructions, and ​readiness for academic learning.

Fawkes Primary

Depending on the unique skills of the learner, some students continue to develop readiness skills as in the kindergarten program. Students who demonstrate that they are ready will participate in typical academic learning for reading, mathematics, social studies, science, and fine arts through one-to-one instruction and group activities that are fun and promote social interactions.

Intermediate Academic

The academic program is suitable for individuals who require an adapted curriculum, direct instruction and extra support with specific subjects/skill areas. Emphasis is placed on developing the skills of “learning how to learn” as well as achieving the highest academic skills possible within their potential.

Secondary Academic

The academic program is suitable for individuals who intend to graduate secondary with a dogwood certificate, who require extra support with specific subjects/skill areas and require adapted curriculum. They may require more than five years to complete their secondary education requirements which Fawkes can provide.

Intermediate Life Skills

The life skills program continues to work on language and communication, skills for independence, interacting socially, following group instruction, and acquiring functional literacy and numeracy skills

Secondary Life Skills

The life skills program continues to work on language and communication, skills for independence, interacting socially, following group instruction, acquiring functional literacy skills, numeracy skills, and developing skills for functioning in the community.

Distributed Learning

Distributed Learning is a great option for students who are in remote areas not close to one of our centres.  Currently we are supporting students on Vancouver Island with our Distributed Learning program.  Our program can be tailored to your child’s education needs and can look similar to life skills programs or any of the academic programs.

How do I Know if Fawkes is Right for my Child?

  • ​I am looking for a program that offers my family support for my child’s education and skills and views my child as an individual.

  • I want the support of a certified teacher, a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst, and behaviour interventionists who receive training and supervision during my child’s program.

  • I want a program that undertakes assessment and measurement of skills, develops interventions and measures progress.

  • I want my child to try hands-on activities for learning about math, science, reading, writing, people and places, nature and the environment, and many other integrated subjects.

  • I want to be active in supporting my child’s school program by attending meetings with staff and implementing recommendations at home.

  • I am willing to provide opportunities for my child to be involved in physical activity at home or in the community for 30 minutes a day.

  • If I choose a home based program, I am willing to participate in the recording of my child’s daily learning activities at home, answer questions about his/her learning, provide work samples, and converse with the teacher regularly.

  • I understand that Fawkes Academy is a school and that my child can only be enrolled in one school at any given time.
