We offer a well-rounded, faith-based education in a caring, inclusive and nurturing community to meet each student’s unique needs. In addition to core curriculum programming mandated by Alberta Education, we are pleased to offer our students a variety of supplementary courses, options and services in collaboration with our many community partners. The values of Catholic faith permeate all programming options within Calgary Catholic schools.
WHAT SETS US APART?
Our Lady of the Assumption School is the hidden gem of the northwest. We serve a smaller population and have maintained a community and family feel within our growing and hectic city. Faith, hospitality and responsibility for each other permeate the culture in our building.
We will be ever-greened this 2018-19 School year and look forward to updated iPads and Chromebooks
• Wireless and high speed Internet access
• Smart boards in every class/Moving to Apple TV display systems
• LCD projectors
• Encouragement of POD’s (Personally Owned Devices)
• 5 Portable sets of Chromebooks and iPads
These tools offer endless opportunities for students to become engaged in their own learning, and for staff to teach and promote global awareness and responsible digital citizenship throughout the curriculum.
Our Lady of the Assumption School offers a wide range of extra-curricular and co-curricular activities for all of its students. There are athletic opportunities, both at the intramural and interscholastic competitive level.
As well as a full range of enhanced academic and artistic opportunities (Band, choir and drama). We also offer a Grade 6 band program that begins after Christmas. As a Catholic Community of Caring, seasonal and team building activities occur throughout the year, often promoting and supporting social justice.
In our community, education is seen as a partnership between home, school and parish. We have an active and visible relationship with Our Lady of the Assumption/St. Bernard’s parish, and welcome parent involvement through volunteering opportunities and family events.
