Kindergarten to Grade 12 learning follows Alberta Education's programs of study which outlines what Alberta students are expected to learn and do. Students' learning is cumulative. Ongoing assessments lets our students, their parents and teachers know what has been learned and what remains to be learned.
Parents and guardians are our students' primary educators. They play an important role in shaping the way children view learning. See this parent resource to discover what your child will learn, how they will be assessed and what supports are available.
Religious Education is an essential and integral part of our schools. It develops our students' knowledge, beliefs, skills and values to build a relationship with God. We deliver Religious Education within the tradition of the Catholic Faith Community which provides our students with experiences of prayer, faith, love and justice. Our teachers and students integrate gospel values into their daily activities and school and community service projects.
