Day School 2020-2021

A big part of City Academy’s success reflects the popularity of the unique timetable structure which we initiated in 1999. In this model the school year is divided into four semesters of 44 school days each. Each period is 2.5 hours long. Although three periods per day are scheduled we counsel students, for maximum success, to take only two credits each semester. The third period “spare” is utilized for homework. We encourage students to remain at school in this third period to complete homework. The goal is that within the school day (8:30 – 4:00) students take classes and complete their homework, thus leaving free time in the evening to enjoy family and friends. The homework period is not mandated, however most students take advantage of the opportunity. Students have a choice of working independently on homework or of being timetabled into a class where homework is supervised.

Proof that the four-semester timetable model enhances students’ success is the fact that other schools have adopted a similar format.

Post-Secondary Support 

 At City Academy it is our mandate to prepare students for university/college by teaching them the skills, knowledge and work ethic which will make them successful in their future. Finding the correct university/college “fit” is of paramount importance. Our student services department is focused on guiding students through the university/college entrance process which includes researching program options in Ontario, Canada, the United States and abroad. 
Students have the opportunity to meet with post-secondary institutions in small group sessions so that they can ask the necessary questions about programs and the admission process. We believe that our students and their families should be making informed decisions about university/college placement.

US Applicants

The process of applying to US schools is a lengthy one and has many additional requirements. City Academy assists students with: preparing for standardized testing (ACT/SAT); NCAA process (if applicable); completing the application process; advising re: reference letters; scholarship opportunities; GPA monitoring. 

Many of our students have been accepted into a wide variety of well-recognized programs in the US. This includes a number of athletes who gained acceptance on athletic scholarships.
