Catholic education is a unique partnership between the school, home, and parish. Together, this triad seeks to develop a student’s whole person by integrating academic excellence and faith. The central focus of Catholic education is Jesus Christ.

Catholic Schools are distinctive faith communities that nurture the spiritual, academic and physical needs of students through the integration of the Alberta Education curriculum with gospel values and sacramental life. Christ is the centre of the Catholic school and his presence and teaching permeate the school building.

Catholic schools offer an integrated curriculum of faith formation and academic development in an effort to form the student’s whole person. This puts Catholic schools in a unique position within the publicly-funded education system, celebrated by the community and guided by the work of the Catholic school trustee.
