Elite Athlete Program
For students who are involved in athletic pursuits at a high level of commitment outside of school, MacLachlan offers an Elite Athlete program to support our student athletes. Students and families find tremendous value in this program as it takes into account the unique demands of off-campus training and travel commitments while assisting students to stay on track with their academic requirements.
The strength of our program is the high-touch attention available to our student athletes. Each student enrolled in this program is assigned an 'academic coach' who works closely with the student to tutor, organize, and assist with the completion of work missed due to absence, or scheduling conflicts between homework and practice demands. The coach helps the student balance his/her academic and athletic demands and meets regularly with the student throughout the school year. The coach also provides support and communication for parents through regular updates on the student's performance and any areas of concern. The goal of the program is to provide a flexible and supportive learning environment where elite athletes can continue to excel at their sport as well as achieve academic success. We recognize that the needs of each student is unique. MacLachlan’s small class sizes, individual attention and customized program has been a winning combination for our student athletes.
Some of the sports MacLachlan students have competed at elite levels are: hockey, golf, swimming, speed skating, canoeing, tennis and gymnastics.
