There are a lot of reasons to come study in Alberta; here are our top 5 reasons!

Excellent Programming for International Students!

Excellent Teaching!

Alberta prides itself in offering a high teaching quality standard. All of our teachers have a minimum of four years of post-secondary education leading to a bachelor of education (B.Ed.) degree; many have more.  Alberta teachers know a broad range of instructional strategies and are able to determine which strategies are appropriate to help all students reach their potential.

High Quality Education and Academic Excellence!

Alberta students consistently score well on international tests such as Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS), Progress in International Reading Literacy Study (PIRLS) and the OECD Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA).
