"It is not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves."
~Sir Edmund Hillary
In the true fashion of Sir Edmund Hillary, the Everest Centre has been developed and implemented to enhance and build on the concept contained in the MacLachlan College Mission Statement that all students are unique and have something remarkable to offer.
Programs under the Everest Centre are designed to go beyond MacLachlan's regular curriculum. Some are incorporated in the school curriculum framework, others may require a more intense application for a specific period of time. Everest Centre programs are not only fun, they complement and enhance students’ unique learning experiences.
Everest programs include:
- Enriched program units for Gifted Students
- Elite Athlete Program
- Direct Instruction Modules
- Academic Coaches
- Tutoring Services
There are myriad ways in which young minds differ and the deeply committed and creative faculty members of MacLachlan College subscribe to the heartfelt belief that children learn best in an environment which values these differences. The Everest Centre is the affirmation of these beliefs.
