Application Process

We are still accepting applications for select grades for the 2021-2022 school year.

1. Visit us.

We hold tours several times a month and would love to meet you. Our tours include an overview of our programs and the chance to see our work in action. You’ll meet some of our students, a variety of staff, and get to peek in some active classrooms.

2. Complete your application online.

Academy program candidates must submit the results of a psycho-educational assessment that is no more than 18 months old. A non-refundable admissions deposit must also be made to secure your child’s name on the placement list. The deposit does not guarantee placement at the school.

3. Let us review your child’s history.

Following completion of the online application and receipt of the admissions deposit, the Admissions Department will review your child’s educational history and other relevant documents to determine eligibility to the Academy or Collegiate program. If we believe our school is the best option for your child’s success, a student-needs assessment is conducted. This informal interview occurs between your child and an Admissions Team member, to gain a deeper understanding of their learning needs. At the end of the interview, your child will be given a tour of our facilities.

4. We’ll be in touch.

The Admissions Committee will take all of your child’s learning needs and history into consideration to determine an appropriate program placement. You will receive a notification from us upon completion of our review.

Transportation

We are pleased to offer transportation to all Calgary Academy students. We redesign our bus routes every year to transport students in a safe and efficient manner. Our transportation provider, First Student, confirms bus route information by the third week in August to families who indicate interest by submitting the student transportation form, in the parent portal, during enrolment.

For details on fees visit the Fees & Payments page.

Calgary Academy is committed to minimizing ride times for students, while being mindful that full busses help control costs. Students from all grades will ride the same busses. To reduce ride times, routes will be developed that minimize the number of communities and the total number of stops on each bus route. If your child is the only stop in a community, it may be necessary for parents to drive to a common morning pick up location in another community. Calgary Academy will endeavour to drop off these students at their home address in the afternoon. To maximize route efficiency, older students living in the same community may be required to walk reasonable distances (up to 1 km) to a common pick up location. Once bus routes have been established, changes will only be accommodated if they do not affect the overall student ride times.

For details on the communities we serve, please visit our Frequently Asked Questions page.

Current COVID-19 protocols require students to wear a mask while on the bus and will have assigned seating. Additional information on COVID-19 precautions will be shared directly with families who have indicated an interest in bussing.

To apply, visit our Admissions page.

Existing families can access their transportation contract and pay fees via PowerSchool.
