Dalbrae Academy is a secondary school located in Mabou, Nova Scotia, Canada. It is attended by 261 students in grades 9 to 12. The school falls under the jurisdiction of the Strait Regional School Board.
The school opened in 2000 after the conclusion of several years of heated and fervent debate with the provincial government over the closure of four local P-12 schools.
As a part of the Nova Scotian governments school consolidation process in the late nineties, four schools were closed in the area:
- Mabou Consolidated School (MCS)
- Whycocomagh Consolidated School (WCS)
- Judique-Creignish Consolidated School (JCHS)
- Port Hood Consolidated (PHC)
The motto of the school was picked in a contest in which students sent in their idea of a school motto. The motto chosen was "Intelligence, integrity, intensity", which is also the motto of professional wrestler Kurt Angle.
