SCHOOLS IN OKOTOKS
Okotoks has a wide range of school options to ensure families can select the educational program that best suits their child.
Okotoks is served by eight public schools within the Foothills School Division. This includes three traditional elementary schools, two elementary/junior high splits, one traditional junior high, and two high schools. While the majority of these schools operate in English, French immersion options are available for K–9 students.
In addition to the public French immersion program, Okotoks is also home to École Beausoleil Francophone d’Okotoks. This school provides students with a French secular education from preschool through to grade 9, allowing students to become truly bilingual. A brand new École Beausoleil is scheduled to finish construction in September 2018. This clean and modern French school will provide an education for K–12 students.
Okotoks is home to two private schools: Edison Private School and Strathcona-Tweedsmuir School. Both schools provide excellent educational opportunities and a structured learning environment for their students. Strathcona-Tweedsmuir is recognized as one of the top 25 private schools in Canada.
Served by the Christ the Redeemer Catholic School Division, five Christian-based separate schools are available to Okotoks students. These schools focus on integrating the Catholic faith into students’ education and daily lives.
In addition to the traditional style of schools, Okotoks has a couple of alternative school options. These include Sheep River Alternative Jr./High School, and The Center For Learning @ Home, a program developed to help families that have chosen to homeschool their children. The St. Luke’s Outreach Centre is also available for students, providing a more flexible means of obtaining a high school education.
