Student Support is a multifaceted department comprised of a multitude of programs and services which encompasses:
- Alternative Education including Cardinal Collins High School Academic Centres

We are very proud of the work we do to provide exceptional support and enhanced opportunities to the students of Edmonton Catholic Schools.
Alternative Education’s mission is to provide flexible, alternative, educational opportunities to students within a Christ-centred atmosphere. We offer flexible, personalized opportunities for high school completion, creating dedicated life-long learners.
Indigenous Learning Services
Indigenous Learning Services continues to assist Division schools to be responsive to the needs of Indigenous students. Indigenous Learning Services has taken a leadership role in Alberta in the development of "Promising Practices" in urban Indigenous education in integrated settings. With its wide variety of programming and creative partnerships, our staff has been able to provide Indigenous students within Edmonton Catholic Schools with an increasingly culturally relevant education.
