Developing Scholars

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 Honours 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.

The Yale Hockey Academy is proud to encourage, support, and train the Student-Athlete. Because the Yale Hockey Academy places a heavy emphasis on academic excellence, it is mandatory for all Yale Hockey Academy students to maintain a B average (73% cummulative) while attending our program. Many of our students have gone on to receive scholarships at the NCAA level or CIS level. The Yale Hockey Academy wishes to maintain a high academic standard.

In addition to British Columbia's graduation program, the Yale Hockey Academy supports those students wishing to obtain hockey scholarships in the USA.  Therefore, our senior students are required to write the SAT.  Our program preps each student desiring to write the SAT through tutorial sessions, and support classes.
