    Get the inside track on what happens at the YMCA Academy in this student-created documentary about the school, created by the 2012-2013 Grade 12 Communications Technology class.

    The documentary features a tour of the school, a depiction of a "day in the life" of an Academy student, profiles of our green initiatives, details about extracurricular activities, and more.

    Conceived, planned, written, hosted, directed, shot, edited, and produced by YMCA Academy students, this project served as the culminating assignment in the Grade 12 Comm. Tech. course.

    Authentic learning and experiential education is central to the Academy's educational philosophy, says Andras Nagy, a teacher and the school's technical analyst. "We like producing tangible work," he says. "Getting the credit is important, but it's even better when students see their work used for a real purpose."

    The YMCA Academy is an alternative high school for students with learning disabilities and learning style differences. It is part of the YMCA of Greater Toronto. To find out more about the school, visit http://www.ymcaacademy.org. Show less
