Grades 4 to 9 make up our Junior Program. We recognize the big leap many of our incoming students take when entering Edge. Our staff is well-equipped to provide the support that our new students require.
In our Junior Program, we offer the core curriculum as determined by Alberta Education. Our students take the following courses:
- English Language Arts
- Social Studies
- Sport Education
- Spanish (Grades 7-9)
- Physical Education/ Physical Literacy
- Complementary Options Class
Sport Education combines sport-specific skill development (in basketball, hockey, soccer, golf, figure skating, and dance) as well as regular Phys Ed and strength & conditioning classes.
We encourage prospective (Grade 4 and 9) students to spend a day in the school “shadowing” one of our current students. Join their class in sport-specific training; sit in on English, math, science, and social; eat a great meal designed specifically for student-athletes in the cafeteria; and, even do a core work-out at the Duckett Performance Centre.
