Grande Prairie & District Catholic Schools is a learning community for anyone seeking a quality Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 12 Catholic education. We operate 13 schools, with 2 more schools opening in Fall 2022 in the City of Grande Prairie.
The Division covers a geographical area that includes the regional communities of Grande Prairie, Beaverlodge, Fairview, Sexsmith & Spirit River. We are a team of approximately 700 full time, part time and casual staff who provide quality teaching and learning experiences for approximately 5600 students.
Your child’s education should not be the same as their classmates. Why? Your child has unique gifts and deserves teachers who seek opportunities for progress, every school day.
Catholic schools offer this and more by not only pursuing academic excellence but excellence in all pursuits.
Of course, academic achievement is important in every school. However, academic achievement alone does not define success in our world. We explore the 10 Catholic Social Teaching principles and they guide our delivery of the authorized Alberta Program of Studies.
