Alberta day schools

Find private day schools in Alberta listed below.

Independent day schools are an excellent option for parents who want their children to have a rich, supportive, private school experience while remaining close to home. Day programs, as the name suggests, are distinguished from boarding programs, with students attending during the day while living at home. They offer the benefits of a boarding environment, including world class academics, a wide range of extracurricular activities, and a rich academic culture. At schools that also offer boarding, day programs can provide an entrée to students in the early and middle years who intend to board during the secondary years.
