A Place That Changes Boy's Lives. Forever.


Robert Land Academy is a centre of excellence in programming designed to develop boys into young men possessing the essential qualities of leadership, citizenship, and self-regulation in order to fully participate in and contribute to society.  By emphasizing accountability and responsibility inherent in the military model of a highly structured living and learning environment, we will foster individuals with the self-discipline and confidence to achieve their academic, moral, and physical potential.


Robert Land Academy will challenge students to reach their academic, moral, and physical potential through year-round programming on our Niagara campus in order to develop boys into young men who embody the five values of the Academy: commitment; courage; labour; loyalty; and honour.

Private boarding school operated on a military theme

Robert Land Academy is a not-for-profit, it is a private military-themed school for boys in both the upper elementary (grades 5-8) and high school (grades 9-12) levels. Located in Ontario Canada, just one hour from Toronto and approximately 50 minutes from the United States (US) border, RLA has been delivering a highly structured program designed to nurture self-discipline, self-respect, and self-determination for boys who are struggling academically and behaviourally, or not living up to their true potential.

Delivering a highly structured program since 1978

Since 1978, Robert Land Academy has offered extensive academic remediation, small class sizes, monitored study halls, tutorials, and an active athletic program for boys. Utilizing the military school theme provides the foundation of a structured and disciplined learning and living community with a focus on emotional, intellectual and social well-being.

No distractions

Having a boys only boarding school allows us to focus on their specific developmental needs and unique ways of learning. The military themed boarding school environment also allows for the elimination of the many distractions which are forever present in the home or traditional day school settings, including video games and personal electronic devices.

100% post-secondary enrollment

The structured program at our school prepares boys for their future and helps them to achieve success by focusing on their strengths as they develop self-discipline. Students are challenged to achieve true potential, with 100% of our graduates over the past decade being placed in university or college programs.

Turn Your Son's Life Around

Behaviours that are allowed to continue become entrenched and are more difficult to address. If you’d like to find out more about how RLA can help turn your son’s life around and set him on a course for success, contact us today to arrange a personal tour of our facility.
