Express Track

North York Academy has developed a unique system allowing students to complete courses even faster. General students take two course each term; Express Track students take three. This allows competent students to move forward 50% faster.

North York Academy also provides students with the flexibility to complete a course within a short duration of time (110 hours for full credit or 55 hours for half credit course) by increasing the number of classes. Express Track courses allow students to start credit courses at any time during the school year and to complete accredited high school courses faster. Where feasible, the course can be planned and scheduled according to a student’s own schedule.
