PEAK Athletics Academy
This school within a school (École Dickinsfield) concept allows students from Grades 4 to 6 to focus on hockey and dance skills during non-core academic time. This passion-based program is carried out on a 3 afternoons per week basis. The afternoon times are every second day, depending on grade level. There is a registration fee for PEAK, which is paid on a yearly basis.
Formerly known as the Edge School Skill Academy in Fort McMurray, the FMPSD Sports Program introduced it's new name, logo and identity in the 2015/16 school year!
The District sports academy was first introduced in Fort McMurray Public Schools at École McTavish Junior High School and École Dickinsfield Elementary School in September 2011 with the focus & commitment to balance and develop academics, athletics and character. Focusing on these 3 areas gave our students the advantage to develop life skills and build a solid foundation for their future as citizens and leaders of their community. While our name and logo changed, our public school District's commitment to students has not. Our Dance Academy has expanded to Thickwood Elementary School. Hockey Academy has been extended to Westwood High School. Our focus remains on our students excelling in academics, athletics and leadership.
