At the Canadian International Hockey Academy, we offer professional-level facilities and an elite hockey program, as well as a world-class educational program provided by Blyth Academy. We challenge our students in the classroom and on the ice, developing young athletes’ minds, bodies and spirits. We prepare them for post-secondary education and beyond.
The Our Kids review of Canadian International Hockey Academy
The CIH program is about pursuing academic excellence as well as athletic excellence. Though it’s also more than that. Yes, some students will attend in order to gain intensive coaching and competition with an eye to a career in professional hockey. That said, not all will, and likewise, not all intend to. For any student, participation within an environment that reflects their passions and interests, and populated by like-minded peers, can be transformative. For all students who enroll at CIH, that’s exactly what the school offers. Classes are intensive, though the instructional day is organized in sympathy with coaching and competition. Which means that the students never miss a class to attend a game, nor do they have to rush between school and the arena. It’s also an environment in which that passion is understood and shared. Again, it can be transformative, augmenting academic success as much it does success on the ice. Some students may to on to become pros, though the sense of participation and belonging, as well as the intensive athletics, can be—and often is—a springboard to success in other fields as well.
