Sunil Mattu LLB (Hons) Law BEd Third Schools is at the heart of Sunil’s work and passion. As a lifelong learner himself, he understands the dynamics and intricacies of education and works tirelessly to ensure all stakeholders, families and students receive the best programs and opportunities possible. In his role as Head of Schools, Sunil works closely with the Leadership Team to provide proactive support and leadership to LYNX staff, students, and parents.

“Third Schools is far more than just a school. It is a diverse community of Albertans- students, parents, and teachers- where parents are provided a real choice in educating their kids. Every child/student is unique and as such so too is when, where and how they should learn, develop and grow. All our children/students are provided with personalized learning. Our staff have the compassion, instructional mastery, and enthusiasm to give our students access to a world class education. It is inspiring to see our students’ hard work and progress on a daily basis,” explains Sunil.

Sunil completed his IB program at Atlantic College (1986) before attending the London School of Economics (1991) and the University of Calgary‘s Master of Teaching program (2001). As an original member of the founding staff, Sunil has been helping to build the dream of Third Schools since 1997. Throughout the years he has held various positions within the organization. The 2021-2022 school year marks his twelfth year as Head of Schools.

Dr. S. Lal Mattu, Third Academy’s founder and Ambassador-at-Large, is proud that his son is following in his footsteps and providing educational choice to all Albertans. Under Sunil’s vision and guidance, Third Schools has established ursa- home based education ranging from traditional home education to distance online programming- and LYNX- nature inspired programming, ECS-Grade 9. “Our most recent adventure in education: the purchase of a new dream school building for September 2022. Very good stuff!”
