Many students at the Great Lakes College of Toronto are studying far away from home for the first time. Knowing this, we strive to provide them with the support they need to maintain their mental health. As they lead happy, healthy, and balanced lives, our students are primed for excellent academic achievement and the attainment of their personal goals. 

According to the World Health Organization, mental health refers to a state of well-being that allows individuals to cope with stressors, focus on their strengths, and make positive contributions to their society. The benefits of solid mental health are directly related to the success of our students, increasing their resilience and confidence.

Academics At Our Private High School Promote A Sense Of  Mastery For Students 

By developing a deep knowledge base or skill in a particular subject, our students develop mastery. The process of developing mastery is satisfying in the end as it makes us feel competent and in control of our lives. Through students’ schooling and career, mastery will help them to take risks and face new challenges head-on with confidence in their ability to succeed.  Building mastery can be difficult as it requires students to embrace failure and deal with setbacks.

Our private high school fosters mastery causing students to feel more competent, confident, and resilient.

Academics at our private high school encourage students to push themselves to build new skills with guidance from faculty members through regular academic counseling and our personalized education program. They develop resilience and learn how to deal with some of the negative emotions that come with learning new skills. The mental strength and mastery that students develop during their time at GLCT will follow them throughout their careers and help them develop the self-esteem necessary for good mental health. 

Our Caring Faculty Members Are Always Available To Offer Support

Sometimes, students require additional support to maintain their mental well-being. At our private school, faculty members are always available to offer academic support but also strive to provide a physically and emotionally safe environment for students. Oftentimes a discussion can help students to significantly improve their mindset whether they’re dealing with homesickness, self-doubt, or anxiety. Our teachers and guidance department are always available to address student concerns, are attentive to their needs, and advise them on how to maintain their well-being. 

Our Inclusive, Family-Like Atmosphere Supports Well-Being at Private School

A student’s mental health can be greatly affected by their immediate environment. A sense of belonging, safety, and the presence of a school-based support system can be protective factors against mental health struggles. The Great Lakes College of Toronto provides a supportive, diverse, and inclusive atmosphere for students where they can feel comfortable being themselves, facing academic and personal challenges, and reaching out for help when they need it.
