Beurling Academy (French: Académie Beurling) is a high school located in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. It is located at 6100 Champlain Boulevard in the borough of Verdun. It serves both the borough of Verdun, and the southeastern parts of neighboring borough LaSalle.[citation needed] It is a part of the Lester B. Pearson School Board.

Beurling Academy was named for Verdun-native George "Buzz" Beurling, the most successful Canadian fighter pilot of the Second World War.

Beurling Academy opened in 2003 as a result of a merger between Riverside Park Academy and LaSalle Junior International School. When it opened it had 580 students, now, that number has dropped to 400.[1]

The school offers three basic programs and one more advanced program: Regular/English; French Immersion; French as a Second Language; and International Baccalaureate (Middle Years Program and Regular IB)

As of 2012 the school has begun accommodating international students in the Middle Years Program. The curriculum is nearly identical to that of Canadian MYP students, though it is more personalized.
