At Vimy Ridge Academy, our focus is on student achievement. After each report period students are acknowledged for their academic achievement in categories of Honours (80-89.9% course average) and Honours with Distinction (90%+ course average).
Junior High Honours course average is determined by calculating the average of the student's core academic classes (LA, Math, Science, and Social), plus PE.
Junior High Honours students must have at least one core academic class 80% or better, with no mark (from the core or PE classes) below 75%.
Junior High Honours with Distinction students must have at least one core academic class 90% or better, with no mark (from the core or PE classes) below 80%.
High School Honours course average is determined by calculating the average of classes at their current grade level including all core (English, Math, Science, and Social) + PE + second language (French or Spanish; if enrolled).
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!
