Welcome to Clear Water Academy - it is a joy to share our school with you.

Clear Water Academy is an incredible school community unlike any other in Calgary. Built on the hard work, perseverance, and unending faith of many people over the last 23 years, our school’s mission is to provide the highest quality education and foster integrally formed Christian leaders.  We seek to educate the whole child and accompany him or her in their personal development, taking into consideration all dimensions of each child: intellectual, human, spiritual, and apostolic.  This approach is called “Integral Formation”.  Our goal is to support you, the primary educator of your child, in the formation of your child as guided by our Catholic faith .

Our promise is to provide an education and formation which goes beyond academics, motivated by love and attention to each and every student’s personal needs, helping each child fulfill the unique plan that God has for them. Graduates of our school are well prepared for life after Clear Water Academy; Christian leaders who have a love for the truth, and a set of skills and habits necessary to tackle higher learning.

We have a clear and enthusiastic Catholic identity, that is lived in a way for families from other faiths to feel welcome in our community. I encourage you to visit our school and experience the passion of our faculty and the enthusiasm and love we have for our students.


Sincerely in Christ,

Mr. Bill Tomiak, Executive Director

One of the greatest gifts a parent can give their son or daughter is that of an extraordinary education; something that Clear Water Academy provides for all its students from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 12. We offer more than just a rigorous academic program that has us ranked as one of the top schools in Alberta.  We offer a journey that will develop the fullness of each student that comes through our doors.

Our program of Integral Formation allows us to teach and form each child in the fullness of their intellect, character, spirituality and their willingness to serve others and lead from a foundation of virtue. Our teachers and formation team create a caring relationship with each student that transcends beyond the books and curriculum of school. We teach the students, but we also foster their personal journey into fine young men and women.

We challenge all of our students academically: in the elementary years with an emphasis on the mastery of skill, literacy, and numeracy;   through junior high and high school with  a demanding university preparatory program.  We strive to position them for success  - we expect our students to pursue the highest level of learning offered.

Our campus environment, in the center of Calgary,  provides all the amenities of an incredible learning environment that exposes students to many enriching experiences. We challenge our students in the fine arts,  outdoor education, public speaking and debate, sciences, athletics, and in their service to the world with mission trips and pilgrimages.

I personally invite you to explore the merits of Clear Water Academy. Come visit our school and meet the people that make this an incredible, vibrant, and loving school.

Principal
