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.

First Nations Chief Morley Googoo Visits Grade 8 Canadian Government Class
Assembly of First Nations Regional Chief Morley Googoo representing Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, and Labrador recently visited the Grade 8 Canadian Government class. Chief Morley Googoo spoke to students about the policy behind the Canadian Government's residential schools program, the daily realities of aboriginal students in those schools and the toll it has taken on the society and culture of First Nations people across Canada. This important visit was arranged by Grade 12 student Hogan Ingram and his aunt Andree Gracie. The visit was a memorable experience for the entire class and provided important insights to their studies.

Cary Fagan and Dušan Petricic Visit Grade 1 Class
Recently the Grade 1 class was treated to a visit from Cary Fagan and Dušan Petričić, this year's TD Children's Book Giveaway author and illustrator. Cary read from their book Mr. Zinger's Hat, played the mandolin and led a sing-a-along. Dusan shared his love of illustration and completed a "selfie" drawing with the help of all the students. The visit was truly a special treat for the group of enthusiastic readers.
