Applications to Academies

Academy registration for the 2018-2019 school year has closed and many academies are full to capacity for this school year.

If your student is interested in enrolling in an academy, please email academies@sd44.ca to inquire as to whether or not there are any spaces available. We are not accepting wait-list candidates at this point in the school year.

Registration information for the 2019-2020 school year will be posted on the website prior to the Enhanced Programs Night, which will take place at Sutherland Secondary School on Wednesday, January 23rd, 2019  from 7:00 - 8:30 p.m.

Withdrawal Process

NVSD will process withdrawals with a signed Withdrawal Form only. Signatures required include the parent, coach, counsellor, and principal. A student withdrawing from an academy may or may not be placed into a regular course, depending upon space availability. This is at the discretion of the school and the limitations of the school timetable.

Withdrawal Procedure

Both Academy programs and school courses are staffed based on enrollment information. The non-refundable deposit will not be refunded. For withdrawals during the school year, a proportion of fees will be refunded in the following circumstances:

1. Illness / Injury / Medical

A student requesting withdrawal from an academy for medical reasons will be asked to substantiate the request with physician signed documentation (must be attached to this form). Fees would be discontinued effective the last day of the month in which the documented notification was received by the District Principal of Enhanced Programs and Academies, so long as there is a minimum of two weeks notice.

2. Move Out of District

We require a minimum of 15 days written notice (completed Academy Withdrawal Form) if a student is moving out of North Vancouver School District and wishes to withdraw from an academy. Fees would be discontinued effective the last day of the month in which the documented notification was received by the District Principal of Enhanced Programs and Academies.

3. Reasons Other than Above

We require a minimum of one month's notice, along with a completed Academy Withdrawal Form, to consider a withdrawal request. A decision will be made collaboratively by the Academy teacher, school counsellor and the District Principal of Enhanced Programs and Academies. A student withdrawing from an academy may or may not be placed into a regular course, depending upon space availability. This is at the discretion of the school and the limitations of the school timetable. Fees would be discontinued effective the last day of the month, following the appropriate notification was received by the District Principal of Enhanced Programs and Academies. The District Principal of Enhanced Programs and Academies must be consulted and informed by email to academies@sd44.ca with a scanned copy of this Withdrawal Form attached.
