    Headwaters Academy is situated on 110 acres of shared forest, fields, & streams with the Elephant Thoughts Experiential Education Centre.  One of our founding promises is to “engage students in an exceptional outdoor and environmental education program.”  There is, however, still bricks and mortar to our school.  Our building is one of the first generation of passively solar heated projects in Ontario (it does have back-up heat for the coldest days) and is truly a stunning place to learn.


    Here is a preview of what’s indoors at Headwaters Academy.

    When we speak of entrepreneurship at Headwaters Academy, both economic and social, we are very serious.  John Wilson, our Advisory Team member on Entrepreneurship and Innovation (see his bio here), has been hard at work with Principal Mark Brown developing Headwaters Academy’s very own ‘Dreamstarter’ platform that students can use to fund their projects.  Click below and select ‘Login’ in the top right corrner to have a preview of just a portion of the power of this application as it takes our students through the business planning and promotions process.  We note that the aplication is still in development – but we wanted to share some of this work today!  The platform is awaiting out students’ first projects… the example projects are some of John’s own inventions that he has launched through Kickstarter.
