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 eight schools across the Grande Prairie Public School Division. Our main campus is at Alexander Forbes School – The Academy School. 

Students in the following schools are able to register for Academy Programs without leaving their boundary schools.

    • Alexander Forbes School - The Academy
    • Aspen Grove School
    • École Montrose
    • Isabel Campbell Public School New
    • Grande Prairie Christian School New
    • Derek Taylor Public School New
    • Charles Spencer High School
    • Grande Prairie Composite High School New Academy Athletics

Students who live out of the school boundaries listed, who want to attend Academy programming may apply to do so at Alexander Forbes. 

The Academy has two main branches: Skills Academy (Hockey, Dance, Soccer, Golf) and Academy Athletics (multi-sport). Each of our schools listed will be able to access Academy Skills and Athletics programs. 

The Composite High School will only be adding Academy Athletics for its students at this time. High School students looking to enroll in a Skills Academy will attend Charles Spencer.

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.
