What Calgary Academy says..
Calgary Academy offers two academic programs. Both programs follow prescribed Alberta curriculum, but each is designed to serve the needs of different learners. Our Academy Program, offered from grades 2 through 12, is designed for students who have average to above average intellectual ability as well as a good social and behavioural history in school, but have significant difficulty with reading, written language or math. Our Collegiate Program, offered from grades 4 through 12, is a university preparatory program. Instructional strategies are designed to develop exceptional independent work habits, study strategies and critical thinking skills. A well-rounded education for each student is ensured through a variety of courses that complement the core subject areas. Students have the opportunity to choose courses in the areas of music, art, drama, digital media, Spanish, and bicycle repair. Students can become involved in a wide range of extra-curricular sports, drama productions, school bands, international travel, and leadership opportunities. Calgary Academy offers students a technologically rich environment that includes a laptop computer for each student, SMART Boards in every classroom and digital science labs. Focused, individualized career counselling is offered to students moving to post-secondary and university settings.
