St. John XXIII Catholic School (St. John) resides within the family of Elk Island Catholic Schools (EICS) and is part of Alberta's publicly-funded education system. Our Saint John XXIII Team is committed to providing quality Catholic education for students in Kindergarten to Grade 4. We also offer a Flexible Pathways program where a multi-disciplinary team responds to the strengths, needs, and learning preferences of our students with complex needs. Flexible Pathways serves students from Early Learning to grade 4.
As part of the greater Elk Island Catholic School District, our vision, mission and goals align with the teachings of the Catholic Church and the wisdom gained through the scriptures. With the help of the Holy Spirit we endeavor to create learning environments where students, staff, parents, and active community members feel welcome, valued and safe. Regulation, resiliency, mindfulness and responsive teaching and learning are integral elements of our school community.
We believe that everyone has something to offer in the amazing task of educating children. When the school, family, and faith community work as a cohesive team, the whole child is educated, challenged, and encouraged to grow intellectually, morally, spiritually, socially, and physically. Our goal is to help each child become kind and capable citizens who can achieve goals and offer their amazing gifts and talents to our world with an attitude of respect and gratitude.
