Elite Athlete Programs

The Elite Athlete Programs provide academic programming for students who are elite athletes involved in regional, provincial, national or international competition.

In order to meet the demands of intense training schedules, schools provide more flexible timetables in order to balance school with out of school commitments, so that athletes can strive for both academic and athletic excellence. Additionally, special consideration is given for school missed as a result of competition.
