School Charism:

Seeing the light in all.



The Staff at St. Alphonsus School is committed to educating each child intellectually, spiritually, socially, emotionally and physically by providing a variety of experiences as a foundation for learning. We make every effort to work in close partnership with parents and the Parish in order to assist our students in their development. To this end we work to provide a safe, nurturing, joyful, caring environment where all of our students can grow to their fullest potential.


St. Alphonsus School serves the communities of Parkdale, Cromdale, Alberta Avenue, Westwood, Boyle MaCauley and Eastwood.  

School Community Kindergarten - Grade 9


A unique opportunity for children and their families to engage in a faith journey from Kindergarten through to Grade Nine. This enables students and their families to maintain familiarity with friends, staff and other school community members. This partnership facilitates growth in faith, hope, and love through a purposeful focus on core values and student learning.
