Education and health are those two things that are a priority for everyone! First lets talk about the education facilities that Alberta offers!


Alberta has an excellent education system, with many options based on language or religion.

Kindergarten to Grade 12

Children living in Alberta must attend school from ages 6 to 16. Public education is free for those under 20 years of age, up to the end of senior high school – K to 12.

Most students attend school from early September to late June. A wide range of schools are available, such as public, Catholic, Francophone, charter, and private, offering innovative programs such as home education, online schools, and alternative programs.

Provincial tests ensure that the highest standards are maintained. These tests also allow teachers and parents to determine how students are doing and what help they may need.
