The school was founded for committed Canadian and International hockey athletes who wanted both elite specific hockey training and elite academics. It offers highly academic structured day, consisting of four 80-minute periods for core course instruction and 1-hour study hall period five days a week.
All courses consist of over 110 hours of classroom instruction. Mandatory study halls provide students with scheduled time to get homework done, read literature, or study for tests and exams. Academy teachers are on duty during all study hall to provide extra help or to answer questions. In addition, time is set-aside during the week for extra tutoring, college advising, and our SAT prep program. All core courses are taught with average class sizes of 14 students.
This allows teachers to interact with students on a one-to-one resulting higher retention rates, better understanding and springboard for the next level. We make every effort to help our students get into the universities of their choice. To accomplish this, we offer an extensive university-advising program (for both US and Canadian schools) and teach an in-house SAT prep course. Each year, upper level students are scheduled to take either the SAT exam.
