Promoting Self-Direction

Robert Land Academy’s intermediate school program for boys focuses on developing personal maturity and fundamental academic skills. While preparing students for university and college level programs, it expands their range of options and choices.

For boys in grades 9 and 10, our program develops the individual’s level of personal maturity and fundamental academic skills while preparing him ultimately for senior level courses. Our program for boys in grades 11 and 12 focuses on successfully placing each student in a university or college program of their choice.

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 academic program is combined with high levels of physical activity, authentic leadership, coaching, and supervision. Our program has shown itself to have significant success in dealing with boys who are not working to their full potential who show characteristics of or who have been diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD), Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD), and other Learning Disabilities (LD).

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 programme, is highly structured and provides little or no choice of course selection until the senior years. The focus of this programme 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 programme that they have identified.
