Edmonton Catholic Schools has been offering sport specific programming for students as a program of choice since 1997. The Sport Academy Schools offer superior athletic instruction for those students whose educational experience would be enhanced with sport specific training. Academy students benefit from participation in these sports in terms of learning to be responsible, organized and committed to an education that is both academic and athletic. The feelings of belonging to the academy team, as well as being given special attention and privileges with accompanying responsibilities, have been key factors in school success for many academy students.
Sport Academy schools charge a program fee that varies by school and by sport, in order to offset the costs of things like equipment, field/rink rental, staffing of sport-specific coaches and trainers, and administration costs.
There are eleven schools in the District that offer one or more of seven different sports. Please contact the school for registration and program information.
