The senior high school program at Edmonton Academy prepares students for entering a post-secondary program or the workplace. The strictly academic program adheres to the Alberta Education Program of Studies, and students write the same diploma exams as other students in Alberta.
Edmonton Academy provides the students with the accommodations that will allow them to demonstrate their subject knowledge. While students follow the same curriculum as in other schools, there are several unique features at Edmonton Academy that provide students with learning disabilities with the skills and knowledge necessary to achieve their best.
Every student at Edmonton Academy has an Individualized Program Plan (IPP) that was developed based not only on their area of need but also on their strengths. Beyond academics, goals often include organization, time management and social skills. These skills are transferable to future post-secondary programs and the workplace.
The Academy assists students in their transition from high school to post-secondary programs by helping them research careers and entrance requirements. Many of our students receive the Rutherford Scholarship, and graduates have attended universities and colleges across Canada and the United States.
