LESTER B. PEARSON HIGH SCHOOL AND MONTREAL IMPACT ACADEMY READY FOR ANOTHER SUCCESSFUL YEAR

MONTREAL, SEPTEMBER 16, 2014 –Lester B. Pearson High School in Montreal North is very excited to continue its very successful partnership with the Montreal Impact Academy.

This year nine students from the school’s successful Sport-Études program will take to the field for the Academy. They will be in attendance at Saputo Stadium on Wednesday, September 17 to cheer the Impact on in their CONCACAF (Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football) Champions League match versus the New York Red Bull.   

As the only English Montreal School Board high school to feature a Sport-Études program and to serve as a partner with the Montreal Impact Academy, Lester B. Pearson places an equal emphasis on pursuing one’s education and athletic passion.  Sport-Études has produced many elite level student athletes. 

“We are very proud to be associated with this prestigious program,” says Principal Pelagia Nickoletopoulos.

A typical day for the student athletes begins with classes at 8:05 am to 12:25 pm. Following lunch, the students have split training and academic study sessions at the Impact Academy from 1:15 pm until 4:30 pm.  Training takes place at the Complexe Sportif Marie-Victorin, less than two kilometers away from Lester B. Pearson High School.

The nine Impact Academy students are: Benjamin Collins and Sean Rea, Secondary I; Daniel Pacella and  Tristan Resendes, Secondary III; Tristano Fasulo, Luca Piccioli and Marco Pinna Cavallini, Secondaruy IV; and Steven Alberici and Jackson Pickard, Secondary V.
