Accredited vs. registered private schools in Alberta

Before selecting a private school in Edmonton, you must understand Alberta's accredited versus registered distinction.

Registered schools do not have to meet provincial requirements. Many parents choose registered private schools because these institutions match their religious or educational ideals. Registered private schools in Edmonton have less governmental interference in teaching, curriculum and educational philosophy. This allows faith-based schools (including Christian and Catholic schools) and alternative schools to thrive and teach material that parents and teachers agree is best for children.

Alberta's accredited private schools receive some public funding and meet provincial requirements. In fact, many of these schools exceed provincial mandates in terms of academic standards, classroom discipline, and other criteria. Accredited private schools are typically more affordable than registered private schools.
