Headwaters Academy engages students with an exceptional outdoor, environmental and entrepreneurial education using authentic project-based curriculum that focuses on learning to adapt and thrive within their local and global world.
Headwaters Academy is located southwest of Thornbury, Ontario on the Niagara Escarpment. Specifically, we are located at the former Kimbercote Farm, which is being relaunched under the umbrella of local charity Elephant Thoughts Educational Outreach. The facility is now known as the Kimbercote Experiential Education Centre. Our students will benefit from partnering with this highly respected organization in our shared use of the 110 acres of outdoor space bounded by the Bruce Trail with a sweeping view over Georgian Bay.
We offer a Junior Kindergarten to Grade 8 Academic Program that meets or exceeds the expectations of the Ontario curriculum.
