Kendellhurst Academy is a private grade school founded by John Kendell and Paula Carrasco-Kendell. As parents, we wanted a warm, nurturing environment with attention to personal, academic excellence for our children. After experiences with both a local prestigious private school and highly rated public school (after our eldest child left our preschool division), we once again thought seriously of home schooling our children. Instead, after six years of great success with our two educationally based preschools and experience in the industry (and having many, many families ask us to open a private grade school), we dove right in! Since we have the educational and business backgrounds (Paula is an OCT and is completing her second Masters in Teaching/Education at OISE/U of T), we decided to make a difference in the private grade school industry. We offer our families a small, boutique type school setting with attention to detail. From an organic based menu and yoga lessons to tailored academic and signature programs, we've created a superb setting for your child to flourish.
