Magee Secondary School offers an educational program to students competing in high performance athletics at the provincial, national, or international level and those performing in the Arts at an extremely high level of excellence. 

This program offers students from Grades 8 to 12 the opportunity to attend Magee during a portion of the school day to complete their academic requirements leading to secondary school graduation and post secondary entrance, while at the same time allowing students to participate in a rigorous training schedule and competition.  In order to accomplish this, Magee’s timetable does not rotate allowing, for example, a child to attend school in the morning and practice their other discipline in the afternoon.

In order to be eligible for this program, students must be training under the supervision of a qualified provincial or national coach or teacher. The student’s training schedule must exceed 25 hours per week from Monday to Friday.  Students must have and maintain a minimum “B” average with no failing grades or unsatisfactory behaviour or work habits. 

A student’s application for entry into this program will be adjudicated by the SPARTS coordinator with input from the coach/teacher and the provincial or national governing body.
