A Quick Snapshot - RLA Canadian Military School


With over 40 years working with boys, Robert Land Academy Canadian Military School has developed a structured program that works.  Here’s a quick snapshot of our military-themed boarding school.

Size and Location

Enrolment at Robert Land Academy Canadian Military School is approximately 125 boys in residence.  Applications are received from across Canada, the United States, Europe and elsewhere around the globe.  The Academy is located in a country setting on 168 acres in the heart of the historic Niagara Peninsula, 60 minutes southwest of Toronto, Ontario and 45 minutes north of the U.S./Canada Border.

Adventure Activities

Boys are challenged with a wide array of adventure activities including scuba diving, parachute training, rock climbing, and canoeing.  Club activities include archery, music, model airplanes, and photography.


The Academy offers classes from grade 5 through to Grade 12.  Our caring and dedicated faculty and staff are employed to provide all aspects of cadet training on a 24-hour basis.  Consistent personal attention, mandatory study halls, regular tutorials and weekend academic programming all converge to provide a highly motivational learning environment.

Student Life

Boys live in barracks-style dorms.  On a typical day, boys rise at 6:00 am and lights out are at 9:45 pm.  Classes are held from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.  Each boy is required to participate in extracurricular activities, designed to develop physical strength, leadership, and a sense of self-worth.  Boys return home approximately once a month for a four day weekend and may apply for additional leaves if their effort warrants extra privileges.

The Typical Applicant

Boys are admitted to Robert Land Academy based upon their potential rather than their past.  The majority of the boys admitted have experienced some level of difficulties related to attitude, concentration, focus, respect for authority or respect for themselves.  A significant portion of the boys demonstrate characteristics of ADD, ADHD, ODD, DCD or LD.

School Inspection

Robert Land Academy is an inspected private school and is in receipt of a Ministry of Education (Ontario) Board School Identification Number (BSID).  The Academy is authorized by the Ministry to grant credits toward the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD).  This diploma is issued by the government and is recognized worldwide.  


The sports programme teaches the value of fitness, endurance, teamwork, self-discipline and the pursuit of excellence.  Varsity sports teams compete with other area secondary schools.

Cadet Corps

Robert Land Academy sponsors a Royal Canadian (Army) Cadet Corps (RCACC #2968).
