Academics

Developing Scholars

Students receive full credit for their on and off field training:(P.E. 9,10,11 and 12 as well as Strength & Conditioning 9,10,11 and 12). Yale Secondary School has continued to be one of the top academic public institutions in the Fraser Valley. Recent surveys identify Yale as the top academic public high school in the district and one of the best in the province. In most years, Yale students are awarded significantly more district and provincial scholarships than any other school in Abbotsford. Yale offers over 250 different courses and a wide variety of extra-curricular activities. The range of educational opportunities available at Yale has led to our fine reputation. We offer several Advanced Placement courses and support them with Honors courses throughout the grade levels. Yale also offers a wide-ranging and intensive program in visual art, theatre and music, which presents students with many opportunities to show their talents.

All of our instructors here at Yale Secondary are recognized nationally and internationally for their baseball expertise. Not only will each student receive top quality instruction, they will have a chance to further their academic success while playing baseball at a post secondary institution. Throughout the course of the year, we will be sending out college resumes and videos for all grade 11 students who wish to pursue their baseball career at the University and College level. Our valuable classroom sessions will be based around sport nutrition, sport psychology, and SAT preparation. We will have a minor playing schedule against other Academies in BC and possibly Western Canada (Alberta). We will have a recruitment camp at UBC during the month of October and will be exposed to guest speakers such as college coaches and local area MLB Scouts.

This program offers physical training, mental training, state of the art facilities, high-end equipment, and a strong academic course load. We expect each student to display a solid work ethic and positive attitude in the classroom. There is not a set grade point average or percentage that we will hold students accountable to, however, they will be placed on academic probation if they have missing assignments or reports of poor behaviour from teachers. Academic probation means the student will be held out of baseball academy activities until further notice.

In addition, our program is affiliated with the Junior and Senior PBL Abbotsford Cardinals.
