Halifax Prep is the first ever Basketball Prep program in the city of Halifax based in Spryfield, Nova Scotia founded in 2017. Halifax Prep students attend J.L. Ilsley High School grades 10-12 and Post grad if necessary. The students are regular J.L. Ilsley students and must abide to the rules and regulations of the high school. The school provides great teachers, smaller class sizes than many HRM high schools and extra help for all grades. In addition, Halifax Prep will provide tutoring as needed to ensure our goal of 85% GPA is achieved by all students while incorporating pathways education which  is  nationally recognize. Halifax Prep also offers grades 8-10 for the junior program.

Our goal is to turn the student athletes’ weaknesses into strengths, specifically with their studies, and give them the confidence they need to be successful in the classroom while excelling on the basketball court by obtaining an university scholarship.
