Why Catholic Education?

Catholic schools exist to make God known.  The Catholic people of the community establish a Catholic school because they desire the education of their children to be nurtured in Catholic Christian values.  Catholic schools operate according to the laws of the Province of Alberta.  The Catholic school system of Alberta has been part of education in Alberta since it became a Province of Canada.

Catholic schools are instruments of the Church, reaching out to the young people of our communities with Christ's teachings about life, death and resurrection.  Next to the family, schools are the most important institutions in the development of the child.  catholic schools are designed not only to develop the intellectual abilities of children but also to teach them to love others, to make good judgments, and to develop good work habits and skills for getting along with other people.  Catholic school activities, policies, discipline, and the rule should be based on the gospel message of Jesus Christ, a message of unconditional love.
