In addition to supporting their ongoing athletic development, the Green & Gold Athlete Academy is also strongly committed to ensuring that our student-athletes succeed academically. Our student-athletes benefit from a carefully designed academic program that incorporates both credit and support. As part of this program all Athlete Academy student-athletes automatically receive five credits for Physical Education each year.
Over and above these Physical Education credits, our Athlete Academy is proud to deliver Career and Technology Studies (CTS) specific to the world of sport. More specifically, our student-athletes are exposed to a variety of career options, including as a sport coach, physical trainer, sport psychologist, physical education teacher, and sport medicine practitioner. This exposure provides each of our student-athletes with five additional credits each year.
Finally, beyond the credits that are built-in to the Athlete Academy, our student-athletes also have the opportunity to receive personal academic support each week. This support is available during the twice-weekly study halls, which are supervised by teachers from Vimy Ridge Academy. These teachers have considerable experience dealing with the unique needs of student-athletes, and are able to provide support in all subject areas.
