Subway Academy I's Mission Statement

Grades: 10-12, Semestered

Subway Academy I is a small alternative school which serves a community of academically driven students as well as students who face multiple barriers to finishing high school. Our dynamic teaching staff is committed to engaging, encouraging, and guiding students to success in our program regardless of life challenges.

Subway Academy I features a wide range of subjects held in small classes in a welcoming environment. Our program is best suited to students who have established some foundational skills at the applied and academic levels; nevertheless, students entering our program with few credits are often able to build these skills through hard work and the assistance of encouraging staff.  We provide regular classroom instruction, 5 days a week with 75 minute periods.

The Subway Academy One Difference

Along with our teachers, we provide support in career and postsecondary counselling. With our programs, students develop the self-directed study skills and discipline essential to succeeding after high school.

Recent examples demonstrate our students' successes. Students have been accepted into Canadian university and college programs in Health Sciences, Social Work, Social Sciences, Arts, and more.
