How to explore Vimy Ridge Academy in 2021
Planning for your student-athlete’s future retains a high position on parents’ to-do lists, even during COVID-19. While recruiting at Vimy Ridge Academy will look different this year, there are still many options for families who are thinking about coming to our campus next school year.
A staple of the recruitment process for many years, the COVID-19 pandemic has made it impossible for us to offer the ability for student-athletes to try a day at the program through our Shadow Day initiative. An important part of the shadow day process will remain and that is the chance for 1-on-1 conversations between Program Contacts and prospective families.
If you’re interested in Vimy Ridge Academy, please visit the school website at VimyRidge.epsb.ca, find your program of choice from the “Academies” drop down and click on the REQUEST MORE INFORMATION link at the bottom of the page. Completing this form will send an email to our Program Contact, who will reach out and endeavour to find a time to have a phone/video conference or answer your questions via email.
VIRTUAL OPEN HOUSE
One of the biggest nights of the year for the staff and student-athletes at Vimy, this year’s Open House programming will be moved to an online format.
On February 11th at 6:00pm, prospective student-athletes and their families can go to the Vimy Open House Website to attend the Vimy Open house virtually. There will be a main Vimy Ridge Academy presentation, followed by several “break-out” rooms where Program Contacts and student-athletes from our different sports programs will be available to answer questions as they come through the chat.

2021-2022 AND BEYOND
We are hopeful that a return to relative normalcy for our community is in the cards for the next school year. Our staff has been incredibly creative and agile in their efforts to keep our student-athletes motivated and active, and that commitment to their development will not change. We hope that through these research options, we are able to convey what an opportunity it is for our student-athletes to attend Vimy Ridge Academy and what a bonus it is for our staff to work together to help them fulfill their academic and athletic goals.
