Education and Training in Edmonton


Alberta spends more money per student than any province in Canada on education and training. We make it a priority to provide our students with the knowledge and skills to become excellent workers and citizens.
 
The result is that Alberta has one of the most educated populations in Canada. About 90% of Albertans aged 25-34 have graduated from high school. About 75% go on to further education.
 

High Achievement

Alberta’s dedicated, highly trained teachers provide up-to-date, rigorous classroom learning. Alberta students score among the world’s highest in reading, science, and mathematics.

Enriched Learning

Edmonton Public Schools and Edmonton Catholic School District offer music and art programs. Drama, Aboriginal studies, career, and technology are among optional programs. A fitness program is mandatory.
 
The University of Alberta is a world-class research and teaching university. Many Edmonton-area colleges also offer university transfer courses or degrees.
