In Junior High, all core subjects are taught in the morning allowing our Elite Program athletes the flexibility to participate in their sport of choice in the afternoon without sacrificing academic excellence. In fact, a disproportionate number of our top JH students are in the Elite Athlete Program!
The three Elementary Academies (Hockey, Soccer, and Performing Arts) are mostly scheduled in the latter part of the morning so core subjects tend to be taught before morning recess and then in the afternoon. This makes it challenging to accommodate the elementary students in our Elite Athlete Program, especially if they are training off-site every afternoon. Our teachers do their best but, given the dynamics of our school, they may not be able to provide the same amount of core subject instruction to the Elite Athletes as they can to the rest of the class. Similar to those in our JH Academy or JH Elite Athlete Program, our Elementary Elite Athletes have to be motivated, independent learners to be successful.
With hard work and perseverance, athletes in tennis, diving, swimming, gymnastics, and other sports can usually build their schedules around the school's timetable.
