Promoting Self-Direction

Robert Land Academy’s senior program creates a culture of success within a highly structured living and learning environment that minimizes distractions, improves focus and direction and helps boys and young men to be the best that they can be.

Robert Land Academy is a private school inspected by the Ontario Ministry of Education and offers curriculum, instruction and resources that conform to Ministry standards and guidelines. Robert Land Academy grants credits towards the government-issued Ontario Secondary School Diploma (O.S.S.D.).

The highly structured environment at Robert Land Academy is intended to support and encourage boys to reach their potential. Responsibility and accountability are stressed as a means of producing the realization that each action has consequences.

An overwhelming majority of our students experience a dramatic improvement in their academic performance and success within the first semester of enrollment. Over the past decade, 100 percent of the graduates who applied to college or university were accepted.

The academic program is intended to be as rigorous as the training and physical education components. Students will be directed to courses that will maximize their future career options and choices. All courses offered are at the Academic or Open level.

Curriculum and Courses of Study

The curriculum, in keeping with other aspects of the overall program, is highly structured and provides little or no choice of course selection until the senior years.

The focus of this program results in boys being placed back into a situation of choice with regards to their own futures. Senior courses are selected based on their appropriateness for university and college admission. Senior students’ choices are determined by the university or college program that they have identified.
