Student Success


The Alberta government has a system for school authorities to consistently measure success and progress, called the Accountability Pillar. The Accountability Pillar uses 16 measures that show communities how schools and school authorities are performing each year. Schools and school authorities use the results to identify areas for improvement and to help build their education plans.

This system helps the province, school authorities and schools track successes and improve the quality of education for students. It also helps build a more transparent K to 12 education system, focused on constantly improving across the province. (

Edmonton Catholic Schools administers an annual Satisfaction Survey to all students from Grades 4-12, their parents/guardians, and all staff.  The purpose of this survey is to hear the voice of our stakeholders as we learn about our strengths and areas for growth as we carry out our mission to provide a Catholic education that inspires students to learn and that prepares them to live fully and to serve God in one another.

Diploma exams are administered each year in January, April, June, August, and November. Alberta’s diploma exams assess many of the outcomes set out in the provincial programs of study, but they don’t assess them all. The current 70/30 weighing puts more emphasis on course work and school-awarded marks. It better reflects the broad range of work students put in over the entire course. The diploma exam program is committed to maintaining high standards, no matter what weighting system is used. (
