The HTI Stars program at the Hockey Training Institute provides an all-inclusive environment for student-athletes with a fundamental balance between hockey and school. We expect equal dedication and achievement in the classroom and on the ice. It is imperative to our program that players develop both academically and athletically to provide them with more opportunities in post-secondary education. We designed our academic program to allow students to succeed in their best learning environment. Therefore, we offer two different academic options: Ontario Virtual High School and Centre Dufferin District High School. Both choices offer classes for grades 9-12 and provide an Ontario Secondary School Diploma upon completion. This diploma is accepted for admission at NCAA and CIS universities.
Centre Dufferin District High School
located in Shelburne, Ontario, provides a public learning system where students are able to interact with peers and teachers in a traditional classroom environment. This requires daily attendance, although the school staff members are prepared to cooperate with our training and travel schedules. Students are able to get involved with extracurricular activities and create relationships throughout the local community. Coaches maintain close communication with teachers to ensure academic success. For more details about Centre Dufferin District High School, please click

Virtual High School
allows students to study, submit assignments, and take exams at any time of day and from any location as long as they have access to the Internet. This online format of education fosters student initiative, time management, and independent learning skills that are vital to succeeding in the world today. All lectures, readings, and learning materials are included – no additional textbooks or learning aids are required for purchase. Coaches work closely with academic advisors at VHS to ensure that each student is enrolled in and progressing through necessary courses in order to graduate on time.

is another acceptable academic option for students at HTI. Students may collaborate with a previous school to continue coursework remotely, either via email, fax, or post. This must be arranged prior to arrival at our residence and we must receive confirmation of this arrangement from school administrators.
Experienced tutors are available for additional assistance with particular courses. These tutors provide one-on-one assistance in each subject area to teach course content and manage student work goals. With additional support, students are able to stay on track with their assignments, obtain extra help when needed, and move ahead with confidence.
We also offer an ESL (English as a Second Language) course, which is taught by an Ontario certified ESL teacher. This course helps our international students with written and verbal communication skills, as well as preparation for the TOEFL (English Language Exam), if necessary for admission to their college of choice.
There are also opportunities to prepare for standardized college entrance exams ( SAT or ACT ). Our certified tutors arrange times each week to meet with juniors, seniors, and post-graduate students interested in taking these exams to help familiarize them with content and the test-taking process.
