Sacred Heart is our most central school, located just north of downtown. Students can easily access the school from buses that go down 97 Street or across 107 Avenue. Sacred Heart has 8 classrooms and it is one of the only schools in Edmonton that teaches exclusively Literacy classes.
The Sacred Heart Foundations (LINC) Program is designed for newcomers to Canada who have not had the opportunity to attend a formal school in their country or have had interrupted learning. The reasons for not being able to attend a formal school can vary from (in particular, women) war to parents needing their children to find work or to stay at home to help with daily chores. These students typically are illiterate in their first language and have not been able to acquire the skills needed to survive in a regular classroom setting or in a literate based society such as Canada.
Although we cover all aspects of learning English: listening, speaking, reading and writing, our classes provide a slower paced reading and writing focused learning. Students have the advantage of working with teachers who are specially trained for their literacy needs. We also provide each student with computer assisted learning, guest speakers, field trips, a full time student advisor, and a free licensed childcare for our students' children (19 months – 5 years old) for our daytime programs only.
