Athletics at St. Jude's Academy

At St. Jude’s Academy, we believe in prioritizing students’ physical and mental well-being above all else, and keeping them active is just one of the ways that we show our dedication to overall student success.

Our Grade 7 to 10 students participate in Physical Education classes every other day for 1 hour 20 minutes. Our Upper School Physical Education classes take place at the state-of-the-art Wynn Fitness facilities and Dome.

A variety of sports are offered as intramural sports, House activities and field days. These activities encourage students to enjoy athleticism and even take athleticism beyond school.  Our Upper School students in Grades 7 to 8 have the opportunity to golf, curl, ski, boulder, skate and experience outdoor education throughout the year, becoming proficient in fun, exciting sports that go beyond the typical gym class.

Grades 11 and 12 do not have formal Physical Education classes, but continue to be involved in sports through intramural, House and sports clubs.

In addition to the state-of-the-art facilities for physical education classes, intramural and sports clubs, all of our students receive membership/access to Wynn Fitness facilities and Dome.

St. Jude's Academy FC

We are also partnered with the St. Jude’s Academy Football Club (FC), an Ontario Soccer Approved Academy Program, to offer professional soccer coaching to all of our students as part of their tuition. Students who also wish to play competitively outside of the school program are welcome to join the Football Club at a reduced price.

SSAF Members

St. Jude’s Academy is a member of the Small School Athletic Federation (SSAF). With the SSAF, the school participates in competitive team sports, including soccer, basketball, volleyball and track.

The St. Jude’s Academy Athletic Centre and Dome

St. Jude’s Academy students have exceptional opportunities when it comes to athletics at school. All our students receive a membership to Wynn Fitness Club. Our fully equipped Athletic Centre (AC) and Dome, located just up the street from St. Jude’s Academy, are used for Physical Education classes, FC soccer coaching, extracurriculars and more. Many Upper School students visit the Dome weekly for Phys. Ed. classes, as per their class schedule, or at various times throughout the year for Track & Field or soccer events. Students are conveniently bussed to and from the Dome and Athletic Centre to enjoy state-of-the-art facilities complete with a large indoor soccer field, a full-size basketball court, an indoor swimming pool and the Wynn Fitness Club gym and weight room. These facilities have a major impact on the quality of programs we are able to offer in athletics, making us one of the best-equipped private schools in the GTA for soccer, basketball, volleyball and more.
