The Newfoundland and Labrador English School Board is undertaking a
review of the H. L. Strong Academy school system with the potential for
the school to close and students attend the Dorset Collegiate school system, beginning in September 2018.
The Newfoundland and Labrador English School District has compiled an information booklet which contains details about the review.
Members of the school community are encouraged to review the information booklet and then provide feedback to the District.
School community feedback and other information will be reviewed by the Board of Trustees. It is extremely important for members of the school community to provide their feedback during this process and an online feedback form has been established with a link found below.

Strong Academy a notice of motion will be made at the public meeting of the Board of Trustees scheduled for November 25, 2017 in St. John's. If a notice of motion is made further information will be provided to the school community regarding the next phase of the process.
