|WALLENBERG ACADEMY TO HOLD FIRST OPEN HOUSE|
MONTREAL, SEPTEMBER 12, 2013- Good news for the anglophone community. A new English high school is about to debut in the City of Côte Saint-Luc.
The English Montreal School Board (EMSB) will hold an open house on Tuesday, September 24 beginning at 7 p.m. sharp for the proposed new high school in Côte Saint-Luc named Wallenberg Academy. It will take place at 5785 Parkhaven Avenue.
This open house will begin with presentations from EMSB officials in the school auditorium, followed by breakout sessions for sports and enriched academics and a tour of the facilities. Plans call for the application process to begin during the month of October. Each prospective student will have to write a placement test and an essay. They will be informed in November about the placement committee’s decision.
In order to participate in sports concentration, students will have to show a proficiency in one of the selected programs. Parents will also be responsible for developing a liaison with a corresponding athletic clubs/coaches/associations for the instruction aspect of the program between the hours of 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Those not in sports, will participate in one of the enriched programs during the same time period.
The new school will cohabitate with existing programs in the facility. Wallenberg Academy has the full cooperation of the City of Cote Saint-Luc and Mayor Anthony Housefather, who sits on the task force. For more information call 514-483-7200 ext. 7429, email Wallenberg@emsb.qc.ca or log on to www.wallenbergacademy.com.
