What is Integral Formation?

Integral Formation is central to how we fulfill our mission at Clear Water Academy. We believe in an educational philosophy that develops excellence in the complete formation of the whole person.

Human Formation

 

The excellent teachers and faculty of Clear Water Academy support students to grow in virtue, confidence, and leadership skills. We encourage participation in various academics, fine arts, and athletics to discover their talents and offer opportunities for students to act with integrity and compassion towards their friends and teammates.

 

Intellectual Formation

 

Students of Clear Water Academy graduate with a wealth of knowledge ranked among the highest results in Alberta by Fraser Institute. One hundred percent of alumni pursue post-secondary education with the confidence to think critically, study effectively, and a personal work ethic aimed at high academic standards.

 

Spiritual Formation

 

Spiritual formation helps students develop their intimate relationship with Jesus Christ by holistically integrating prayer and reverence within the school curriculum and celebrations. Daily opportunities to participate in the Catholic faith through in-school activities and the Sacraments of Eucharist and Reconciliation encourage children to develop a personal relationship with Jesus and to discover their unique mission. 

 

Apostolic Formation

 

Out of the abundance of the other three aspects of Integral Formation, students develop the understanding of the importance of generously serving the community around them. Through concrete works of charity, we seek to emulate the Apostles by caring for the emotional, physical, and spiritual needs of others. Apostolic formation calls students to action as they live out their responsibility as Christian leaders.
