Our Vision

In order to develop the intellectual, spiritual, social and emotional growth of our students, we are committed to providing opportunities that foster life-long collaborative, critical and creative thinking skills.

Year Round Schooling

Edmonton Catholic Schools has three schools offering a year round schooling calendar. These schools balance their instructional days into four terms with vacation breaks between each of the terms. The number of instructional days for students is exactly the same for both the year round calendar and the traditional calendar.

 Year round schooling gives parents in Edmonton Catholic Schools another choice for their children's education and reduces the concern of learning loss over a longer summer break.
