Parents, Guardians and Students of Metro Prep,

The school year is winding to a close and we are all aware that the fate of our Metro Prep community has been in jeopardy.  The sunshine has arrived and summer is on everyone’s mind as important school enrollment decisions loom. 

We understand that timing has been critical for all of the students, families, agents and potential schools involved in this unusual situation, which is why we have been exploring every available opportunity to continue our relationships with you.

Today, we are excited to create some sunshine of our own and finally share some wonderful news!

Metro Prep Academy will remain open.

Our beloved school will still operate at the same great location, with the same great teachers, and even the same great name!  The school is not closing.

We are now able to confirm that we can continue to provide the full Metro Prep Academy experience for years to come.  As the owners of 1 Duncan Mill engaged with our staff, they quickly recognized the value of what we offer, and graciously became our new investors, partners and allies.  We are thrilled to now have the resources and the space to innovate, improve, grow and expand the school across more of the building in the coming years.

Unlike our initial attempts at partnering with a new owner to launch a new school, we are sure you will agree that saving our existing school is the best possible outcome for Metro Prep.  No construction, no relocation, no uncertainty.  It is unfortunate that we have been on such a wild and unexpected rollercoaster ride, but we are pleased to say that it has made our small, dedicated and determined team even stronger!

Administration of Metro Prep Academy will continue under the direction of Ryan Seeley as School Principal.  He will be joined by Sue Dhillon, Joanna Johnson, Shaney Nelson, Jason Van Allen and Shirley Little, with the additional support of Mohan Fernando and Mickey Muzaffar.  The Metro Prep teaching staff will remain as consistent as possible, and we all look forward to seeing you in September.

Our next steps begin Monday June 3rd 2024, when we will be contacting all current and future Metro Prep families to ask if you are still able to join us in September for our 2024-2025 academic year.  We will also provide you with additional information about application forms, tuition, OSRs, the SMITH program, etcetera as all of those details are finalized.

We would like to thank you, once again, for all of the kind support and patience you have shown us over the past couple of months.  It is such an honour, a pleasure, and a relief that we won’t need to say goodbye!
