We believe our Academy Programs are testament to our goal of engaging learners through stimulating, relevant and inspiring educational experiences. Each of our unique academies creates an environment where our students feel great pride and, in turn, great success. Our passionate teachers and outstanding professional coaches work hard at building positive, trusting, and encouraging relationships with our learners.

The Hockey Academy at Burnsview Secondary is an example of Delta’s commitment to offering choice programs that enable learners to engage in their passion during the school day.
