The Sport-Études program was launched at John Rennie High School in the 2000-2001 school year. The Sport Federations involved have concluded protocols with the Lester B. Pearson School Board and John Rennie High School, local clubs and associations, and Le Ministère de l'Éducation et Enseignement supérieur (MEES). Entrance criteria and practice requirements are set by the individual federations.

To be eligible for the John Rennie Sport-Études program, athletes must be connected with one of the recognized Sports Federations. Further information on the Provincial Sport-Études program can be found at the MEES website.

Sport Concentration

John Rennie also offers a concentration program in other sports. Provincial federations have no protocols with the Lester B. Pearson School Board and these sport partners. They are regulated by a local agreement between John Rennie High School and the local sport partner. Students in these sports enjoy the same timetable and academic advantages as those students in recognized sports. Students enrolled in the concentration component must also meet criteria respecting level of ability and level of training.

Academic Organization for Sport-Études and Sport Concentration

  • This is an immersion program. All courses are covered within 67% of the normal time allotment within the normal student time table. (Example: English will be taught 4 days out of a 6 day cycle, instead of 6 out of 6.)

  • There are 4 academic periods per day. Periods are 50 minutes long.

  • Classes begin at 8:10 am, and end at 12:00 pm.

  • Pedagogical support will be available from:
    7:30 - 8:00 am and
    12:50 - *1:50 pm

* Please note that ALL Sport-Études and Sport Concentration students must leave
   John Rennie High School by 2:00 pm.



Pedagogical Support Measures for Sport-Études and Sport Concentration

  • Pedagogical Support (available before and after class):

    • Formal study sessions staffed by Sport-Études teachers who are available to answer questions, administer tests, review material, help students prepare for up-coming assessments or catch up after absences due to competition.

  • Tracking of student academic progress (i.e. homework assignments, tests) and regular feedback to students on the evaluation of their work. When academic performance falls below an acceptable level, parents will be notified and a plan for recuperation proposed.

  • Regular liaison between teachers and coaches to evaluate whether the balance between academic and athletic demands are being met.

  • Each student will have an email address to communicate with teachers.

  • Academic counselling services are available.
