|Welcome to the website of Armbrae Academy. An independent, university preparatory, co-educational, non-denominational day school from Preschool to Grade 12, Armbrae is accredited by CAIS (Canadian Accredited Independent Schools), the first and one of only two independent schools in Nova Scotia that is. Armbrae is a not-for profit school with CRA Charitable status and it is governed by an arm's-length Board. |
We hope this website will provide you with the information you are looking for. We also hope it will give you some sense of who and what we are. Nonetheless, neither this site nor our prospectus or other print material is able to convey what being a student at Armbrae is really like on a day to day basis. So, we encourage you and your child to visit the school and discuss with us how your child and Armbrae might be a good match.

|Congratulations Dragons Robotics|
Congratulations to the Armbrae Dragons Robotics team and their robot, R.O.B.
The team, in its rookie year of existence, participated in the FIRST LEGO League
robotics competition. We went to the Qualifying Tournament at the IT Campus of the NSCC in Halifax with the goals of doing our best, learning as much as possible about how these competitions work, and having fun. Not only did we achieve all three of these goals, but we also advanced to the Provincial Championships, held at Acadia University on Feb 2nd, where we placed 6th out of 32 teams!
