Edge School is a private school located in the Rocky View County, just west of Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Edge School offers training in dance, golf, hockey, soccer, figure skating, basketball, and a flex program for students who would like to pursue a sport other than those currently offered. Edge follows a three-sphere philosophy – academics, athletics and character development - which aims to prepare students for either post secondary education or a career in their chosen sport.[1]

History[edit]

The school was founded in 1999 by Brent Devost, and combines athletics with a strong emphasis on academics.

In 2008, Edge built a new 170,000 square foot facility with complete academic amenities and a state-of-the-art sports complex.[2]

Jim Davidson Sports Complex[edit]

The Jim Davidson Sports Complex is a world-class athletic, recreational and community-use facility. Inside the 90,000 sq. ft. complex there are 2 NHL-sized arenas, Founders & Alumni Lounge, gymnasium with 2 NBA-sized courts, high-performance training centre, 3 professional dance studios, golf centre, and a sports medicine clinic.[3]
