Robert Land Academy offers a demanding academic program that is as rigorous as the training and physical education components. Small classes and a low student to faculty ratio allow for close, personal interaction. Remedial assistance, supervised mandatory study halls and tutorials are an integral part of daily routine.
The school year is divided into two semesters from September to June. Academic courses are offered in accordance with government guidelines and are subject to Ontario Ministry of Education inspections.
The Academy offers credit courses leading to the granting of the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD). This government issued diploma is recognized by universities and colleges throughout North America and Europe. Each credit requires 110 hours of scheduled instruction. Students normally take eight credits during the course of an academic year. At the senior graduating level, a full-time program normally consists of six grade 12 or pre-university courses. All courses are offered at the advanced or academic level and all courses reflect traditional subjects and disciplines.
Classes are small and average 15 pupils. Tutorials are conducted during week days and weekends. Mandatory structured study halls are conducted each evening and on weekends. All courses emphasize the development of strong basic skills in reading, writing, and study techniques.
