Sports Academies

In a Sports Academy, you can focus on a particular sport in addition to academics. The time you spend practicing your sport during school hours counts as your PE and elective credit, and you spend the remainder of your studies attending regular classes alongside your Canadian schoolmates. This is a good option if you’re interested in pursuing sports professionally.
