Students participate in celebrations which help them gain an understanding of the Ukrainian Catholic faith, with special emphasis on the Byzantine Rite.
Students receive instruction as prescribed by Alberta Education. In addition, they learn to understand, speak, read, and write Ukrainian. Ukrainian language students have the opportunity to participate in testing for The Examination of Ukrainian as a Foreign Language certificates.
