Coast Mountain Academy is a proud advocate and facilitator of the internationally-recognized Duke of Edinburgh Award program.
Duke of Edinburgh is an excellent opportunity for students to have individual improvement, achievement, and experience in four major areas that are in line with CMA’s core values. These areas are: service, developing a skill, physical recreation, and completing an adventurous journey. Students are challenged to explore new passions and gain recognition for activities that they love to do. Through this process of personal and social development, students learn to challenge themselves and discover hidden capabilities and talents.
CMA encourages students to earn this award as it teaches responsibility, perseverance, and commitment. In addition to this, it looks great on post-secondary applications, scholarships and resumes. All aspects of the adventurous journey component are achieved as part of our LEAD program at CMA, while other components are completed outside of school hours.
