“Mourning the Loss:  Our dear friend and Dartmouth champion Sean O’Regan passed away suddenly on March 10, 2022 and has left a giant hole in the Churchill Academy community.

Since our founding, Sean was always there, no matter what the need, large or small, and he never sought much in the way of recognition. Once we have recovered, the School will find meaningful ways to pay tribute to, and carry forward, his legacy of selfless commitment to serving the needs of students with learning challenges. Farewell Sean, may you rest in peace.”

Sean O’Regan, who died two weeks after his 53rd birthday, was a member of the Atlantic Business Magazine CEO Hall of Fame. He contributed time and resources to several charities, notably Churchill Academy, a school for children with learning disorders. “He liked it for a number of reasons but mostly because if kids don’t have an opportunity to learn, an opportunity to progress and grow, our community is diminished as a result of that,” said his brother Patrick O’Regan.”

Churchill Academy Website Gets Facelift

Today, more than ever, websites are the electronic face of a school and the place most people first look to get a sense of a school’s unique identity, core mission, range of programs, and student learning activities.  Over the past few months, we have been working to refresh, redesign, and improve our website as an essential gateway of access for parents, students, staff, alumni and prospective families.

We encourage you to log on and checkout our redesigned website at www.churchillacademy.ca when it goes live this afternoon! 

You will immediately see improvements in the graphics and images capturing the close student-teacher relationships, welcoming philosophy, and variety of activities which enrich school life. Our goal was to present Churchill Academy as it is and to demonstrate why it serves students with learning challenges so well.  Visitors are introduced to our Head of School and the story of Churchill Academy.  Prospective applicants get a good sense of what it’s like to attend the school. We have also provided opportunities for supporters to make online donations to help us meet our immediate needs and support our programs.

Our Website Renewal Project Team consisting of volunteer board members and staff deserve recognition for their work behind the scenes.  Many thanks, as well, to our website consultant, Pam Green of dotsimple.ca, and to graphic design specialist Chris Francheville, for contributing your time and talents to this little project.

We hope you find our refreshed website informative, up-to-date, and easy to use – and can depend upon it for the latest news about Churchill Academy.
