High School Credits & Graduation
High school students reap many rewards through attending Vimy Ridge Academy. Even with all of the amazing opportunities that our students receive through their designated programs, high school students are able to fit all of their core classes into their timetables and graduate with credits well in excess of the required 100.
We are very proud of the number of grade 12 students who embark on post-secondary pursuits after spending high school years with us. In the past three school years, one out of every two grade 12 students has gone on to pursue post-secondary studies. Wow!
