For aspiring athletes, Ontario Hockey Academy offers the best of both worlds. Students have access to an elite private boarding school education while playing the highest level, most competitive AAA hockey. While many programs try to copy the OHA model, they can't duplicate our unique combination of training intensity and complete academic programming. Players come to OHA from all over the world - Russia, Sweden, Slovakia, USA, England, Italy, Latvia, Scotland and Canada - in a quest to develop excellence both on and off the ice.
It is no secret that we live and breathe hockey at OHA, but we also ensure academics and hockey work together, giving our student-athletes a competitive edge both on and off the ice. We understand students have different needs, and work to develop personalized training programs that provide time for practice, academics, and personal needs. We challenge students daily, and expect a commitment to excellence, both on the ice and in the classroom. What OHA offers student-athletes is absolutely unique!

THE OHA MODEL
We urge all parents to make education a priority and encourage post-secondary education. Whether it is NCAA, CIS, or Junior hockey, we plan and prepare all OHA students for acceptance and success at the university level.
With a well-planned approach, both education and hockey development can be achieved, and simply makes good sense!

Our Major Midget AAA teams play in the Central Junior Midget Hockey League. The U18 Boys' Junior Prep team play 50 plus games in showcases and tournaments, predominately in the United States and our Midget AA team play in the HEOAA league.
PLACEMENT IN NCAA and JUNIOR HOCKEY
In the past four years, the Ontario Hockey Academy, has placed more than 12 players into NCAA, over 15 players to Major Junior "A", over 50 players in North America Junior "A" Hockey Leagues including 12 in the highly recruited Canadian Central Jr Hockey League (CCHL) (One of the most scouted Junior Leagues in North America.).
Junior hockey is a major step between midget and collegiate hockey. Today it is almost a prerequisite to play juniors to get scouted for a collegiate team. The Academy employs a full time hockey advisor to help students navigate the system and get the the right players to the right teams.
The Ontario Hockey Academy hockey program is carefully designed to provide boys elite training and maximum exposure. We ensure our student athletes are seen. This means going to some of the biggest and most prestigious tournaments and showcases in Canada and USA. We have 4 boys teams:
Jr. Varsity U17
Ontario Hockey Academy produces so many successful students because of the skill and strength our student-athletes develop in our program. Our scheduling, coaches, teachers, and facilities give high school students every opportunity to develop on the ice while pursuing their all important academics.
Training and playing hockey six days a week, in a controlled, scheduled environment means that finding a ride to a game, or having to choose between playing in a tournament, training, or attending a class are no longer a concern, allows players to focus fully on their sport. This ensures they are better prepared to compete successfully in junior, NCAA, CIS, and prestigious international competitions such as the World Junior Championship and National Team tournaments.
