A new voice for Catholic Education

By emphasizing values alongside academic rigor, Edmonton Catholic Schools epitomizes a vital society with a moral conscience. The District commits to excellence in education and builds community centered in Christ's teachings thus providing students with the best education possible. The District's commitment is founded on a fundamental belief in the worth and benefits of Catholic education--for students and for humanity.   

The time has come to give this valuable institution a hand. With Catholic schools facing more challenges than ever before, the Edmonton Catholic Schools Foundation was formed to preserve, to protect and to strengthen Catholic education by raising public awareness of its importance and by enhancing community financial support. 

A new voice is needed: A Voice that is sustainable and dynamic, and allows the District to depend on long-term affirmation. 

The good news is that such a voice represents a tremendous opportunity to reinvigorate support of Catholic education in Edmonton and make it stronger than ever. The Foundation exists to raise funds with integrity through all available channels while assuring sound f​inancial management and prudent investment practices.  The distribution of funds will be guided by the following Goals of the Foundation: 

 
Enhanced Catholic Identity 
Support expenditures identified by Edmonton Catholic Schools that help to sustain and support the Catholic message in ways that  resonate with students, educators, parents, the church, and the community. 

 
Community of Service 
Fund requests made by principals on behalf of children and/or families who "fall between the cracks". 

 
Communications 
Foster relationships between the Foundation and its many publics by serving as a bridge to increased understanding on behalf of Catholic education and Friends of the Foundation.

English Language Learners

Who are English Language Learners?

English Language Learners (ELLs) are students whose first language is a language other than standard Canadian English

These students are newly arrived from other countries or Canadian-born

They have diverse cultural backgrounds and school experiences

The Rate of Second Language Acquisition

Research shows that it can take between 5-7 years (and sometimes longer) to learn a new language proficiently. Please see Characteristics of ELLs for further information. 

Programming

Edmonton Catholic Schools supports all diverse learners within an inclusive classroom. 

Elementary (Grade K-6)  and Secondary (Grade 7-12)

The classroom teacher and the teacher responsible for ELLs collaborate in the planning, instruction and assessment of grade level curriculum. 

The classroom teacher provides targeted instruction specific to the needs of the student through differentiated instruction, either individually or in small groups, as needed. 

Teachers use a yearly assessment (Alberta Education K-12 ESL Proficiency Benchmarks) to guide student learning.

Some secondary schools offer additional ESL programming. Please see Edmonton Catholic Guide to Schools

English Proficiency Benchmarks 

All identified ELLs are assessed yearly with the Alberta Education K-12 ESL Proficiency Benchmarks to determine their level of English in order to program for them in the inclusive classroom. 

Parent Resources 

  • EDUCATE - an online resource for parents and students
