We follow the CBE Traditional Calendar. The calendar sets common start and end days, non-instructional days and holidays. For our school’s additional non-instructional days, late entries, early dismissal days and events, see our school calendar page.


The Alberta Government announced on July 21 that schools will be in Scenario 1 as of Sept. 1, 2020.  

The CBE's 2020-21 re-entry plan is subject to change as more information becomes available from the province. We will continue to update schools with more details during the next school year.​​

Students are expected to supply their own binders, loose-leaf paper, pens, pencils and any other necessary equipment and supplies. An inexpensive calculator is strongly suggested for all students in Math classes. Due to Occupational Health and Safety regulations several shop classes also require steel-toed boots.

Textbooks and handouts will be supplied by the school and are funded by the payment of school fees.
