The mission of HudsonWay Immersion School is to develop intellectually curious, flexible thinkers who demonstrate exemplary character, multicultural perspectives, linguistic abilities and the capacity to become meaningful global contributors.


The English explorer Henry Hudson whose namesake provided inspiration for the name of our school sought a passage from England to China via a route above the Arctic Circle. HudsonWay uses the mnemonic “ARCTIC TIE” to remember the 9 values important to HudsonWay Immersion School.
