Lester B. Pearson High School's Sport-Etudes program is designed for the high performance athlete who is able to maintain high academic standards.
This high-level program is recognized by the Ministère de l'Éducation et de l'Enseignement supérieur (MEES) and is administered in conjunction with provincial sports federations. It allows students to combine learning an athletic sport and academic studies, in order to achieve excellence in both spheres.
We provide our student athletes with a supportive environment which will enable them to succeed academically while pursuing their athletic careers.
The Sport-Études program provides for a personalized daily schedule, daily study hall and tutorials, sufficient time to practice and compete in your sport, flexible deadlines and the opportunity to e-mail or fax assignments and projects.
The Sport-Études program also provides for support services including:
In addition to having provincial agreements with the sports federations above, Lester B. Pearson High School also offers a Sports Concentration Program. Students enrolled in these sports enjoy the same schedule and academic benefits as those students recognized as Sport-Etudes.

The success of the Sports-Études program depends on the collaboration of many partners, including the Lester B. Pearson High School administration, staff and Governing Board, and of course, its sports partners.
We currently have provincial agreements with the following sports partners, these are recognized Sport-Etudes protocols:
