About Us

Our Mission

To create a distinctive community dedicated to true passion-based learning. To become a Husky means to commit to the highest standard of personal integrity, honesty, and academic growth. By combining this commitment to the pursuit of one’s own passion, we believe we can create a positive environment in which each student-athlete will realize their potential; academically, personally, and within their passion of choice.

WE BELIEVE IN EXCELLENCE

Excellence is at the core of our philosophy. We strive for excellence and inspire our students to achieve it as well—in learning, sport and life.

WE BELIEVE IN ACADEMICS

Excellence in academics goes hand-in-hand with sport. Our students don’t just excel on the field, they excel in the classroom too.

WE BELIEVE IN COMMUNITY

Being a part of our community means contributing back to it. This is a value we live by and instill into every one of our students.

Our History

Passion-based education started in the Grande Prairie Public School District with the Edge School Skill Academy Grande Prairie in 2010, a satellite school for Edge School (located in Calgary, AB). In 2014, we separated from Edge School Calgary and began The Academy, similarly devoting our new program to the vision and mission first created by Edge School Founder Brent Devost, and carried on by Program Director Brett Stephenson.
In our first year we had just over 60 student-athletes and two academies; hockey and dance. Now in our sixth year of operation, we are well over 200 student-athletes and have four very successful academies under our umbrella; hockey, dance, soccer, golf. Our program is targeted at the passionate athlete or artist in grades 4 to 12 who have an internal drive to positively affect their academics and character development through elite sport and/or fine art training.
Our main campus is located at Alexander Forbes ~ TheAcademy School We have satellite campuses at Ecole Montrose and at Charles Spencer High School.
