​Our school offers options to suit our students’ unique learning needs, interests and abilities. All of our courses follow the Alberta Programs of Study​

Complementary Courses

Courses for study in junior high school fall into two categories, core and complementary. The combination of core and complementary courses is designed to provide students with skills, knowledge and attributes that meet their diverse needs, capabilities, and aspirations.

In addition to these core courses all Grade 7 students have the opportunity to experience courses in CTF (Career and Technology Foundations) and Fine Arts.

Complementary Courses

  • Art
  • Foods
  • Design
  • Computer Programming
