Ontario Hockey Academy Academic Mandate
The Academy’s mandate is simple:
1) Prepare our students for post secondary education.
2) Get our students into the university and collleges of their choice.
The Ontario Hockey Academy is a High Performance Academic-Athletic private preparatory school located in Cornwall, Ontario. It is dedicated to providing boys and girls with the very best in academics along with elite hockey. We offer students individual learning with all the responsibility, guidance and tools they need to take control of their own education, and prepare for academic, professional and personal success. Our curriculum meets real-world expectations. Students will be taught the new ways of technology skills learning, through our innovative ways of learning that will empower them into society.
Schools require you to be not only a good student but a very focused and organized student. If you did not develop these skills in High School then you will have problems. Now you see the challenges that face a school in attracting players to their program. Not only must you be a first rate athlete you must be a first rate student.
