What the YMCA Academy says..




The YMCA Academy is an alternative high school serving youth with learning disabilities and learning style differences. The school’s small class sizes, individual education plans, life skills counselling, and experiential learning opportunities support students in their pursuit of college preparation and workplace level courses in a state-of-the-art facility located in the Toronto Central Grosvenor Street YMCA Centre.

An experiential approach is crucial to the success of our learning community. From hands-on lessons in class to activities delivered in situ across the city, YMCA Academy students receive authentic opportunities to broaden and demonstrate their learning.

These in-class activities are supported by a unique suite of engaging experiences, all linked to the school’s course content. These include the school’s popular cooperative education program, health and fitness and outdoor education opportunities through the YMCA of Greater Toronto, and environmental stewardship initiatives that utilize a broad range of community partnerships.
