Academics & Options
Our accelerated, Biblically infused curriculum is an enhanced version of the Alberta Curriculum. Option courses start in Grade 7.
Following our mission statement, students are given leadership opportunities to "serve through love" throughout the school year.
In order to facilitate a smooth transition into the new grade, and foster strong relationships, grade groupings go on overnight retreats at the start of the school year.
Our custom designed REIL (Royals' Epic Intramurals League) program allows students to compete and gain valuable teamwork skills.
In Junior High, our goal is to create a dynamic Christian environment where students excel at learning while developing life-long relationships within our community, and with Christ. Throughout the year, our students are offered the opportunity to discover who they are, and nurture their God-given talents through a variety of Christian-based initiatives. Leadership growth is also enhanced through mentorship opportunities with students in the Elementary school.
Our accelerated, Biblically infused curriculum includes core subjects and the addition choosing from five option courses starting in Grade 7. Students can explore either French or Spanish as their second-language option. Junior High is a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) environment, allowing for digital literacy growth alongside regular classwork. Class sizes are kept to a maximum of 25 students*, with four homeroom classes for each grade, and our dedicated Educational Assistant team is available for added support when needed.
Outside of regular classes, students can pursue interests in artistic and athletic endeavours in our various extra-curricular programs. Students wishing to pursue athletics can try out for the GCA Royals' teams, or participate in our in-house REIL intramurals league. They also regularly utilize our expansive theatre for chapels, assemblies, band concerts and our extensive musical theatre production. In Junior High, various clubs are available for students to explore their interests. Potential for growth in all aspects of life is encouraged as our students mature into young adults, and servant leaders.
