Saint Thomas Aquinas New School Opening


East Central Catholic School Division is proud to announce the new Saint Thomas Aquinas School opening in Provost, Alberta. The Division would like to thank and recognize the commitment and hard work of all our staff, parents, board members, and previous Superintendent Charlie McCormack, that made the dream of a new school a reality.

In The Third Path, Dr. Tranter discusses a strategy referred to as "placemaking." Placemaking consists of a "public space planning approach that promotes well-being, health, and a feeling of belonging, and that imbues the space with more meaning." We genuinely believe the new school design and architecture have captured this concept of placemaking.

The Division is delighted with the overall design of the building, from the state-of-the-art energy-efficient electrical and mechanical systems to the faith-based symbolism, school colors, and the open concept that brings natural light into the learning areas. The architectural design aligns with our faith-based focus supporting safe and caring learning environments and our mission to serve the needs of everyone in our community.
