What is ATI?


Virtual School



Student Life at ATI

Join our community! The school community is created by students and guides together. School routines, trips, clubs, and constitutions all contribute to constructing our school space. Furthermore, ATI students are active participants in global ATI networks and their local communities.

Be part of something big

Each student, guide, coach, and member of staff at ATI Toronto brings his or her passions, interests, and curiosity to the school. The school connects with our sister schools, with the local community, and with the world. As a community, we value each individual as a unique, complex, interesting, and engaged member.

Co-create your school

Students and staff create the school's culture and norms within the basic core values and routines. School communities are created in a variety of ways by students, including:

  • Clubs and interest groups created by students
  • Student-run small businesses
  • Making furniture and choosing art to decorate the physical space
  • Morning and afternoon meetings are part of the daily routine

Working together

Studying and working together are important to our students. The most striking example of this is our micro-economy program, where students operate their own businesses. In addition to learning specific skills relevant to their particular businesses, students develop the ability to work in a group, plan ahead and manage a schedule, and engage with community stakeholders and customers effectively.
