The Maples Academy, a leading IB private school, provides full-day, everyday, in-class instruction!

Be a part of The Maples Academy family.

What sets us apart from other schools is the rare sense of family within our community. At The Maples Academy, kindergarten students don’t just know their peers — they know Grade 8 students. Our teachers don’t just know their own students — they know all of the students in the school. We see our school as a family because our school culture is welcoming, warm and accepting of others, and we value every unique individual. Parents, faculty, junior students and senior students alike are known and have a voice. Representation matters to us, and we take pride in fostering a tight-knit community which feels like home to many diverse people. We welcome you to be a part of our The Maples Academy family.

The Maples Academy Difference

The Maples Academy is proud to serve the communities of Orangeville, Caledon, Shelburne, Grand Valley and surrounding areas. We’re different. As the leading private elementary IB World School in Orangeville, our graduates are highly sought after. The accredited IB Primary Years Programme (JK-Grade 6) and our exceptional Middle Years Program for Grades 7 and 8 emphasize fundamentals and effective learning habits. Behind our students' success is a strong community of parents and a faculty of IB World leaders and instructors, including specialists in Phys. Ed, the Arts and language, who care for each and every student. This individualized approach to learning encourages students to think critically, problem-solve and inquire for themselves. The Maples Academy graduates are equipped with the skills they need to excel in later grades and in life, and are inspired to confidently make their mark in the world. In our classrooms, students participate in hands-on activities that enrich their understanding and unique, personalized support is always readily available. The Maples Academy students are:


Comfortably take criticism and understand other points of view


Brave the unknown for projects, take on unfamiliar roles, and try new things


Take responsibility for their actions and act with integrity and honesty


Effectively articulate information with confidence and eloquence
