Headmaster's Welcome

Welcome to the website of Armbrae Academy. An independent, university preparatory, co-educational, non-denominational day school from Preschool to Grade 12, Armbrae is accredited by CAIS (Canadian Accredited Independent Schools), the first and one of only four independent schools in Nova Scotia that is. Armbrae is a not-for profit school with CRA Charitable status and it is governed by an arm's-length Board.

We hope this website will provide you with the information you are looking for. We also hope it will give you some sense of who and what we are. Nonetheless, neither this site nor our prospectus or other print material is able to convey what being a student at Armbrae is really like on a day to day basis. So, we encourage you and your child to visit the school and discuss with us how your child and Armbrae might be a good match.

Exciting Discoveries in Grade 7 Science
As part of a recent study on food webs, Kim MacIntyre’s Grade 7 Science class dissected owl pellets. They used the bones found to identify the types and numbers of organisms eaten by the owl.  The class data was collated  to make inferences about their typical diet and students assembled the skeleton of one organism from their bones.  Students were excited by their discoveries demonstrating another great example of the hands-on learning experience at Armbrae.
