Finally started to achieve success
The Academy was THE answer for us. We went through numerous organizations and schools and no one could offer anything even close to what the Academy offers. My child blossomed and finally started to achieve success after enrolling in the Academy. I have been telling anyone who would listen about the great work that the Academy does.
Motivation to succeed
My daughter started in Grade 9 this year, and it is the first time in six years that she loves going to school. Her self-esteem and self-confidence has grown immensely. For the first time in her school life, she can tell me what she is studying in each class. Previously she was never given any homework or assignments, now she willingly sits and does any work needed, including wanting to study for upcoming tests. Her motivation to succeed has skyrocketed.
Full support from staff
The YMCA Academy has been lifesaver for us. My son is more confident and happier than ever before. He gets full support from staff and students and has made a 100% turnaround. I was very frustrated with the public school system and feared my son was going to be a high school dropout, but he is trying things he would have never considered before and we finally see a positive future for him
The best decision
The Academy has exceeded our expectations. The staff’s genuine concern for each child is obvious and greatly appreciated. The opportunities to be involved in community projects, exchanges, and extracurricular activities further enhance the experience. It was the best decision that we could have made for our daughter’s high school.
