IGNITE incorporates a flexible schedule where students residing in Nova Scotia attend their local schools and complete the core classes for graduation/university prep through personalized plans built around their sport and education requirements. This model allows student athletes the flexibility to rest, recover, train, study and compete.

Athletes and coaches have identified the challenges of combining the demands of academics with the requirements of becoming high performance athletes.

Athletes are assessed based on their national sport organization's assessment of their performance, their provincial sport organization's assessment of their performance, and their current academic standing. 

Please speak to the high performance coach and or technical director within your provincial sport organization if you are interested in applying for IGNITE. 

Applications for the 2022-23 academic year will be available through your provincial sport organization from June 1, 2022 - June 30, 2022.
