Developing Scholars

Students receive full credit for their on and off field training:(P.E. 9,10, and 11 as well as Strength & Conditioning 9,10, and 11). Yale Secondary School has continued to be one of the top academic public institutions in the Fraser Valley. Recent surveys identify Yale as the top academic public high school in the district and one of the best in the province. In most years, Yale students are awarded significantly more district and provincial scholarships than any other school in Abbotsford. Yale offers over 250 different courses and a wide variety of extra-curricular activities. The range of educational opportunities available at Yale has led to our fine reputation. We offer several Advanced Placement courses and support them with Honors courses throughout the grade levels. Yale also offers a wide-ranging and intensive program in visual art, theatre and music, which presents students with many opportunities to show their talents.

Each girl will also have a chance to further their academic success while playing softball at a post secondary institution. Throughout the course of the year, the girls will have the opportunity to send out college resumes and videos for all grade 11 or 12 students who wish to pursue their softball career at the University and College level. Our valuable classroom sessions will be based around sport nutrition, sport psychology, and SAT preparation.

The Yale Softball Academy is proud to encourage, support, and train the Student-Athlete. Because the Yale Softball Academy places a heavy emphasis on academic excellence, it is mandatory for all Yale Softball Academy students to maintain a B average (73% cummulative) while attending our program as well as receieve strong work habit scores on their report card. The Yale Softball Academy wishes to maintain a high academic standard.


The Yale Softball Academy is split into two groups, Red and Blue, which train at different times during the school day. This gives each individual the opportunity to train with girls that are competing at the same level as them, as well as to increase one-on-one time with each academy instructor. The groups consist of but are not limited to the following classifications:

Red group: Grade 11 and 12 players.
Blue group: Grade 9 and 10 players
