10 Reasons Why Your Son Should Go To Robert Land Academy

“Children lose a sense of responsibility and understanding of what is important in the real-life, because of the various video games and TV access available to them. Some boys are so smart, that they will manipulate the system further – “they gave me a computer, so they will give me whatever I want, I just have to push harder”.”

Testimonials From Parents

''We registered our son here this year during a global pandemic. The school has been absolutely wonderful in quelling any of our or our son’s concerns. We recently finished a Christmas break with our son home for three weeks. We saw amazing results after him having only been at the school for 4 months. He has matured and made great strides in managing his temper and communicating clearly and effectively rather than resulting in a huge fight. The journey isn’t over but we finally see a light at the end of our dark tunnel. I believe this school has changed the direction of our son’s life in an immeasurably positive way.''
Krista B (Parent, 2021)
Very Impressed! We were hesitant on sending our son to a private boarding school. We knew he would thrive with structure and routine. This was something we couldn’t give him at home. Robert Land Academy instilled the values of hard work, respect and perseverance in our son. Small classes with one on one instruction and mandatory study halls helped our son achieve higher grades and confidence. We knew he always had it in him.
Thomas S (Parent, 2021)
My son is currently in his third year at this school. It’s awesome. So glad we found this place! Lots of discipline, lots of structure for sure. But what I appreciate even more is the genuine care and concern for my boy that I sense from all the teachers and staff whenever I speak to them. They know boys and they are passionate about seeing boys develop and mature well. My boy has a lot of challenges and struggles. Many schools would have given up on him long ago. Not RLA. They willingly take on his challenges and, slowly but surely, we’re seeing some wonderful results. We’re not rich. Financially it’s been a struggle but this is money very well spent.
Karl T (Parent, 2020)
Our son attended RLA for 4 years. Each year we gave him the choice to return or not. He enthusiastically chose to return and graduated as an Ontario Scholar. His work ethic, study skills, and grades all improved, but more importantly he grew into a strong minded individual and is a great adult. There was a lot of tough love at RLA. When we and he reflect on those days, he would not trade it for anything. Any young man wanting or needing to be better than who he is today would greatly benefit from RLA. Will it be easy; NO. Will it be worth it; YES.

Testimonials From Alumni

As a graduate from 2018/2019 I can say with the utmost sincerity this place changed my life and set me on the right direction. Before I went to this school I had no prospects, ambitions, or goals for my future. At the end of my two years here I was graduating with honours and an armful of awards and university acceptances, thanks to the stellar structure of the program here and the extensive dedication the staff and faculty show in their work every day. To anyone, especially those like myself at my time of admission who are in their later years of high school and mulling over the seeming impossibility of doing anything significant after your diploma, look into this place. I remember touring a boy in my last year who, like me, was in grade 11 and had a gnarly looking transcript, but had big dreams of going to U of T. I assured him without a doubt he could get there. Two years later when he graduated, I saw that he had been accepted to his dream school. Anything is possible.
Daniel H (Alumni, 2020)
Alumni here. I am going into second year university, and this school has changed me for the better. I honestly wish that I had gone to this school far sooner. The teachers and staff are all kind, but use every opportunity to mentor the students in discipline and self-control. Not only this, but I felt that I could always go to staff with any problem that I had, no matter how small or personal. The classes were thorough, and the teachers very good at explaining ideas in ways that supported each student’s needs. The ideals that built the foundation of the school (loyalty, labour, courage, commitment, and honour) were the kind that, if given a chance, cement themselves in students’ minds, and can persist even years after graduation. I have seen this same phenomenon from many of my fellow alums. The student experience was very difficult. A challenging environment and demands to fulfill your potential: both are not easy to cope with, but students come out stronger because of it. I fully and unhesitatingly support the school and its ideals.
