Celebrating our Successes and Welcoming New Partners
Thank you to all our partners who work with us and our parents to create a learning environment rich with experiences, laughter and excitement.
Edmonton Catholic Schools and the Association of Professional Engineers, Geologists and Geophysicists of Alberta (APEGGA) signed a memorandum of understanding on March 8th. The agreement formalizes an already strong working relationship with the association where APEGGA will help ECSD students plan careers in engineering and geosciences.

Educational Community Partnerships Definition
Educational Community partnerships are an integral part of the educational experience through which students learn about the world in which they will live and work. As a progressive district, Edmonton Catholic Schools believes in educational experiences that prepare the next generation to be contributing members of society and influential contributors to the work force in the 21st century.
An Educational Community Partnership is an ongoing, mutually beneficial and supportive arrangement between Edmonton Catholic Schools and post-secondary institutions, not-for-profit organizations, cultural groups and government organizations to help students achieve their academic goals. Partners share values, objectives, resources and responsibilities to achieve desired learning outcomes by providing expanded learning opportunities and enhancement to the curriculum and/or complementing existing student services. Edmonton Catholic Schools recognizes that each partnership is unique and special and exists for the benefit of the students of our District and their educational goals.
