The Great Academy

The GREAT Academy mission is to ensure that all students Gain Real-world Experience through Active Transition. The Academy exists, not only to improve education for students, but to provide students with necessary skills for career success. The Great Academy promises to make sure that our seniors are prepared for the demands of post-secondary education and/or the career world, and in turn, improve the community by improving its residents. The Academy is committed to providing students with an education that is relevant and meaningful to their journey of achieving success.
