Our Enrichment Program
Our enrichment program which consists of our volunteer and service activities, our extra-curricular program, our learning centre, are designed to provide invaluable learning in areas above and beyond the core curriculum.
Our aim is to build strong leadership and service skills for students that will last a lifetime, excite minds, and ignite passions.
Volunteer and Service Opportunities
Students cultivate a sense of personal and communal responsibility through giving back to the community. Areas of volunteering and some examples include:
- Our Local Food Banks
- Educational Events – University Fair
- Environmental Organizations – Ecological Society
- Arts and Culture – Art and theatre shows
- Family and Children Services – Homeless Shelters
- Fundraising Events – Cops for Cancer, Terry Fox Foundation
- School Events – Fashion Show, Talent Show
Alexander Academy’s after-school activities are a vital extension of the day and reflect our dedication to developing active, student leaders. Students develop their interests and talents ― and discover new ones ― through extra-curricular programs that reinforce what they learn in the classroom, encourage skill development, and build self-esteem. Along the way, students share enriching experiences, forge friendships, and challenge themselves to grow.

As part of our after-school offerings we have a daily drop-in Learning Centre. Our Learning Centre provides students with a structured but relaxed environment where students are able to do homework, and receive academic teacher and/or peer support.
At the Learning Centre, we provide students with extra academic support after school from Monday to Thursday. We provide a safe learning environment where students can build relationships with other students as well as with the staff. There are three options at the Learning Centre; we have teachers running subject-specific sessions where students can drop in and ask questions, we have teachers tutoring students one-on-one, and we have students who are matched with peer-tutors. At Alexander Academy, our staff is truly committed to supporting our students in their learning. Please speak to a staff member to join the Learning Centre.
