Sundre's school system boasts a dedicated and innovative staff, whose focus is squarely on your kids. River Valley School (kindergarten to grade 8) builds a creative and inclusive environment that continues on into grades 9 to 12 at the Sundre High School (SHS).
At SHS, excellent academic, athletic and music programs have turned many Sundre youth into provincial champions of various sorts and the school performs amongst the highest level throughout the province, in terms of number of graduates, number of students participating in Provincial Achievement Tests, and in other critical areas.
Sundre High School's commitment to delivering a well-rounded and solid education to its students has also resulted in a very successful dual credit program (where students earn transferable college/trade credits while still in high school) and in a Community Learning Centre (CLC) which offers an alternative learning environment.
Sundre's CLC is considered an exceptional model for such facilities, both within the local school division and beyond.
Sundre is also home to a new Campus Alberta Central (CAC) learning site, located at the Sundre Community Centre. CAC is a joint venture between Olds College and Red Deer College (RDC) to provide on-site, in-person learning in some of Central Alberta's smaller communities. RDC typically teaches the courses in Sundre, so keep an eye out for ongoing post-secondary programs available to the public being taught by them right here in town.
