We are a part of the Edmonton Catholic School Division which inspires and prepares students

  • to learn
  • to work
  • to live fully
  • to serve God in one another

The staff strives to model those virtues and practices that will lead to a caring, Christian, Christ-centered community, focused on learning, morality, and spiritual growth.

The Ben Calf Robe Program is designed for students in kindergarten to Grade Nine. We offer a student-centered environment in an inclusive setting. The program follows the academic curriculum set out by Alberta Learning, in an Aboriginal cultural and spiritual environment. Courses such as

  • Mathematics
  • Language Arts
  • Science
  • Social Studies
  • Physical Education
  • are enhanced with cultural components such as
    • Cree Instruction
    • Native Studies

    Students also study

    • Art
    • Computers
    • Life Skills
    • Career and Technology Studies

    Our mission is to provide a Catholic education that has its foundations built on trust, responsibility and change. It begins with respect for oneself, for others, and for those yet to inhabit the earth.
