​​​​​​​​​W.F. Herman Academy - Secondary School       


​​Welcome to W.F. Herman Academy ……"Home of the Green Griffins!"

 At Herman Academy, we have a rich tradition of academic excellence. We offer a variety of programs and services to meet the learning needs of all students.  In addition to a regular high school curriculum, we offer a French Immersion Program, an English as a Second Language Program (ESL), Specialist High Skills Major Programs (SHSM), Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program (OYAP) and a Skills to Enhance Personal Success Program (STEPS). We are very proud of our students' academic, artistic and technological achievements.  Many of our Gr. 12 graduates earn scholarships, awards and bursaries to Colleges and Universities across Ontario and North America. 

In addition to academics, we offer a wide variety of extracurricular clubs and activities for students from Eco-Schools to Student Parliament.  In athletics, we offer a full complement of boys' and girls' teams.  Our school teams perform extremely well at local, regional and provincial competitions.  Some of our graduates have earned athletic scholarships.  A few have gone on to play professional sports and/or represent Canada at international events.  I hope students will take the opportunity to join one or more of our activities, clubs or sports teams throughout the year. 

​This handbook was designed to help students have a successful school year.  It contains all of the essential information that students need to know with respect to our rules, policies and procedures.  Students are encouraged to review this information with their parents/guardians.  It is important that everyone understand our expectations.  This handbook also includes a calendar for students to organize their homework assignments, tests, exams and extracurricular activities.  It is essential that students take the time to plan for success.  I look forward to meeting our new and returning students and wish everyone a fantastic school year!​
