High School - Adapted Octomester Schedule (September - December)

Students will be doing a single course for the first four and a half weeks of school. The Academy has coined this an “octo-mester” as it envisions the school year divided into eight equal parts, with students taking one course per division. Students will attend in person one day, and learn from home the next, while extra-curricular activities, student academic support, and student counselling support, will all continue online. Distance learning will be an option for all families should they so choose. In that case, their child’s learning will all be online. The octo-mester will allow the Academy to re-evaluate and adapt our delivery model every 3 weeks to best respond to current health guidelines to ensure that staff and student safety is prioritized. As required by the Ministry of Education, our Middle School students will attend school daily for about five hours per day. They will remain a separate cohort from the high school and will not share Academy classrooms or teachers with them.
