HPA program: 2018-2019

Do you know any students who are balancing a demanding athletic schedule with their academic pursuits?

Do they perform at the provincial or national level in their sport?

St. Andrew’s JHS offers a High Performing Athletes program for grades 6 to 8. The HPA program is an academic program designed to accommodate athletes with heavy training schedules.

Admission is based on level of athletics as well as hours of training (minimum 15hrs per week). Academically we do recommend students who are self motivated and well focused.

Program Features:

  • Supportive learning environment
  • Full core curriculum including optional courses
  • Flexible timetables
  • A chance to work with other athletes from a variety of sports

Applications for grades 6-8, 2018/2019 school year are now available in our office.

Space is limited.

Transition to middle school: new section on blog

As we go through the process of transitioning to a middle school structure beginning in the 2018-2019 school year, we will be sharing information with our families and community. There are a number of meetings and discussions taking place. Parent reps have shared information with our Family of Schools rep, and the information has been shared and discussed with the principals of the transitioning schools. Please rest assured that parent voices have been heard and comments/concerns have been taken into account.

We will continue to post any updates as we receive them. Please check back here, and use the left-hand menu to see all relevant posts (category: Junior High to Middle School).

POLL: grade 8 and 9 end of year activities

With the change from a junior high to middle school occurring as of September 2018, we will be having both the grade 8 and grade 9 students all leaving St. Andrew’s JHS at the end of June. In preparation for year-end events, we have prepared a survey to gather information from both parents/guardians and students. The survey is located online and takes only a few minutes to fill out.

Students have been provided time during school hours to fill out their survey, and will all have had the opportunity to share their input by the end of the week.

We ask that parents/guardians of grade 8 and/or grade 9 students please fill out the form, one set of responses per household. Please complete the survey by NOON of Tuesday, October 17th, 2017; after this time, the survey will be closed. The survey can be found online at:
