Our Approach

As a member of the RC (Regnum Christi) Education Network (https://rceducation.org/),Clear Water Academy operates under the principals of an RC school.  The RC school network encompasses over 150 schools world-wide including eleven in North America.   The RC Educational Model is called Integral Formation. It is built upon the Christian view of the person and focuses on forming all dimensions of the person - their intellectual, human, spiritual, and apostolic capacities. At Clear Water Academy we develop each child's knowledge, character, faith, and spirit to prepare them to fulfill the unique mission for which they were created.

Intellectual Formation

Clear Water Academy sets high, yet attainable, academic expectations for its students. Solid intellectual formation provides a wealth of knowledge for students, giving them the ability to think, speak, and write clearly, coherently, and persuasively. Our students develop habits essential for ongoing success after graduation including study skills, concentration and critical thinking, perseverance, and a desire and ability to produce high quality work. Clear Water Academy has been consistently ranked as one of the top academic schools in Alberta by the Fraser Institute.

Human Formation

Human Formation is at the core of authentic leadership and character building; allowing students to master themselves as faithful to their personal convictions. Human Formation involves assisting students to grow in virtue, self-confidence, and leadership skills. Their integrity, honesty, and compassion make them good and loyal friends.  

Spiritual Formation

Spiritual formation aims to help students fulfill the mission for which they were created, developing a deep, personal and intimate relationship with Jesus Christ. Christ becomes the ultimate motive for all of a student's choices and actions. The student's intellectual and character growth comes to perfection through God's grace and through the student's spiritual efforts.

Apostolic Formation

We seek to develop our students as sensitive and responsive to the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of others; emulating the heart of an apostle. Students perform concrete works of charity both within the school and for the larger community. Apostolic formation brings students into contact with the realities of life, awakening a sense of responsibility that will continue to be lived out as adults.
