The Academy Program

Follow Your Passion. Drive Your Education.

A passion for sports or dance can positively drive a passion for education and character development. That is why we developed The Academy Grande Prairie.

This Program of Choice integrates excellence in education, athletics, and positive character development in every day of our student-athletes' educational experience. 

Come join us! See what passion-driven education can do for you.
