In conjunction with the philosophy of the Academy, our afternoon requirement places an emphasis on developing a healthy, active lifestyle and is consistent with our belief that students should interact with their peers both on and off campus. We believe that the experiences gained from physical activity benefit our students and play a significant role in allowing them to develop the skills, attitudes, and habits necessary to build a strong mind, body and spirit.


Swim Requirement

We require all Grade 9 and 10 students to be able to swim a minimum of 75 yards and tread water for 2 minutes.

New students will be tested in the fall, and if they choose not to be tested or are unable to complete the test, we will offer swim lessons. The lessons will be free and can be private or in a group.

Future testing includes:

2019 - all new Grade 9, 10 and 11 students

2020 - all students will be engaged in the swim requirement
