Peak Centre Academy’s Vision to Meet the Athletic Needs of our Students
The Peak Centre Academy sports program follows the principles of Long-Term Athlete Development (LTAD), a Sports Canada sponsored initiative that is designed to help athletes reach their full potential by properly sequencing sport-specific and conditioning activities throughout their development.
The Peak Centre Academy Athletic program combines daily sport-specific activities that include on-ice/court/indoor and outdoor field training, strength and conditioning, field-based athletic development, and unstructured playtime that encourages physical creativity.
All our programs are built on a sound scientific foundation, using the latest research on young athlete development and performance. Our sports curriculum is flexible to allow for individualization based on the stage of development and the physical abilities that are optimally trained at each stage of development. The goals of our students are to obtain a post-secondary education while playing hockey, or another sport, at an elite level.
Peak Centre Academy’s Vision to Meet the Educational Needs of Our Students
Peak Centre Academy’s vision is to serve the unique academic, physical, social, and emotional needs of students participating in elite sports.
We strive to equip our students with the best life qualities that sport produces:
High expectations for student achievement together with consistent standards across the grades, ensure a positive school climate where learning comes first. Our teachers help students build a learning community in the classroom by modeling and encouraging positive interaction. The intent is to create enthusiasm for learning and to facilitate working on team-based tasks. Student engagement is fostered using varied instructional strategies, access to interesting resources for both teachers and students, and student-led conferences.
Peak Centre Academy’s Vision to provide Professional School Services to Our Students
Peak Centre Academy is a full-service private school. We will establish and maintain OUAC or OCAS accounts for our OSR students planning to enter post-secondary institutions upon graduation from high school.
Peak Centre Academy strives to guide all students to meet their full potential and achieve their dreams. Peak aids in SAT preparation and the University and College Application Process. Peak Centre Academy will produce and forward copies of the Ontario Student Transcripts to post-secondary institutions in a timely manner.
Peak Centre Academy will establish an Individual Education Plan (IEP) for exceptional students in order to identify the student's specific learning expectations and how these expectations are to be accommodated within their day course.
It is the school’s responsibility to establish and maintain Ontario Student Records (OSR) or those students who are the sole responsibility of Peak Centre Academy, following the Ontario Ministry of Education's Guidelines. Finally, it is the responsibility of Peak Centre Academy to determine the equivalent credits earned by students entering the Ontario school system from their previous educational setting and to advise the students on the remaining requirements to be completed in order to earn the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD).
