The Academy Program

An Alternative Program of the Grande Prairie Public School Division

A passion for sport or fine art can positively drive a passion for education and character development. Our goal is to integrate excellence in education, athletics, and positive character development in every day of our student-athletes’ educational experience. Come see what passion-driven education can do for you!

The Academy Grande Prairie is offered out of three schools across the Grande Prairie Public School Division. Our main campus is at Alexander Forbes School – The Academy School which hosts our grades four to eight student-athletes. We have satellite campuses at Charles Spencer High School for our grades nine to twelve students, École Montrose for our grades four to eight French Immersion students, and at Aspen Grove School for grades four to six students in our Multi-sport Academy.

For all Academy Programming (Grades 4-8) students who do not reside in the Alexander Forbes, Aspen Grove or Ecole Montrose boundaries can receive a boundary exemption to attend Alexander Forbes to participate in Academy Programming (including Athletics).

Program offerings are dependent on meeting minimum enrollment numbers.

Our mission

To create a distinctive community dedicated to true passion-based learning. To be an Academy Student means to commit to the highest standard of personal integrity, honesty, and academic growth. By combining this commitment to the pursuit of one’s own passion, we believe we can create a positive environment in which each student-athlete will realize their potential; academically, personally, and within their passion of choice.
