STARTING FALL 2021
We truly believe that high performance in sports can translate into strong leadership skills, a thirst for knowledge and success, and a keen drive to self-improvement.
As of the next academic school year, we will be offering students in the IB program from MYP 4 to DP 2 the possibility of training and competing at high levels in three different sports: football, equestrian sports (jumping/dressage), or golf.
Through partnerships with local riding schools, the Maisons-Laffitte Golf Club and local football organizations, we aim to offer an elite sporting experience for students who want to dedicate a significant part of their time to these disciplines.
As academic excellence is a cornerstone of our offering here at Ermitage, we will push these student athletes to continue with a challenging, but manageable, load of IB coursework. This balance of academics and sports will allow students to apply for competitive and ambitious university and post-secondary sporting programs as well as sports management courses. Students will be encouraged to maintain a strong academic profile to be ready for whatever the future throws at them.
