History[edit]

In 1888, three nuns from the order of the Faithful Companions of Jesus began teaching 23 Catholic students in the very first Catholic school in Edmonton. From then they have grown from one school with 23 students to 88 schools with more than 35,000 students. Catholic education in Edmonton has a proud tradition that dates back to before Alberta was a province. In August 1888, Edmonton Catholic parents applied to organize a separate school district for their children. In October of that same year three sisters from the Faithful Companions of Jesus sailed from France to open a convent and a school in Edmonton. They began teaching at the newly formed St. Joachim Catholic School on 2 November 1888. That first year the sisters taught 23 students. At that time compulsory schooling began at age seven and was complete by the age of 12.[4]

Future[edit]

The construction of the Cardinal Collins High School Academic Centre is currently under way and is scheduled to open in September 2014. The centre will offer programs for fourth and fifth year students as well as:

  • English as a Second Language instruction
  • Fresh Start/Outreach High School
  • Summer School
  • PASS

Cardinal Collins High School Academic Centre will be located at the Clareview Recreation Centre and is located close to the Clareview LRT station.
