Grades 1-3


Building courage in classroom learning starts with a secure and fun environment. Clear Water Academy teachers work with students personally to understand the best methods to encourage confidence in achieving superior skills in literacy and numeracy.


In addition to the academic foundations, children grow through expanded opportunities in faith studies, music and Spanish class, skating lessons, and performance opportunities. 


Integral Formation in Elementary


We believe children need a secure environment to learn, so we focus on building quality relationships with students and their families to reveal their individual, God-given talents. Our personalized education and formation programs invite your child to pursue excellence.

Grades 4-6


The upper elementary curriculum emphasizes reading and writing, mathematics, computer skills, and public speaking development, setting the foundation to move into our comprehensive Junior High program. Faculty and students are empowered to succeed within a single-gender environment. Girls and boys benefit from instruction tailored to their learning styles and development supported by evidence-based research.

Gender-Style Education 


"There are few differences in what girls and boys can learn. But there are big differences in the best ways to teach them."

– Leonard Sax. M.D., Ph.D., Why Gender Matters

At Clear Water Academy, our curriculum makes no distinction between genders but recognizes learning and social differences to inform our teaching strategies. Our uniquely trained educators empower your child to take risks in their thoughts and ideas by tapping into special interests and applying developmentally appropriate methods for girls and boys from Grade 4 through Grade 9.
Every person was created uniquely by God with distinct gifts and talents. We promote single-gendered classrooms to facilitate these individual educational needs and growth better. Girls and boys achieve the same high academic standards and Christian leadership development through consistent quality instruction and varied engagement approaches. Students still benefit from co-ed activities to connect socially at lunch, recess and some option classes.

Busing Program


We are pleased to offer our families a pick-up and drop-off student busing service for the 2023/2024 school year. The Clear Water Academy school bus currently makes three stops within Calgary's Northwest quadrant. We believe that having our own exclusive busing service with an experienced and qualified bus driver is the safest, most reliable, and most formative option for our students. 


The total fee for pick-ups and drop-offs is $2,500 per student for the 2023/2024 school year. The fees will be paid in monthly installments (September 1, 2023 - June 1, 2024). For more information please contact us at [email protected]
