Youth Campus Education Centre Update

Calgary Arts Academy is currently re-modernizing the historic Weston Bakery building at Stampede Park’s Youth Campus. This will be our new home for three hundred middle-school students, Years 4 to 9. This new Education Centre is designed to deliver Arts Immersion instruction while fostering community engagement through design. Completion is scheduled for December 2017.

We thank Alberta Education and Alberta Infrastructure for their support.

As requested by the Government of Alberta, and under the direction of Calgary Arts Academy Society Board, Calgary Arts Academy Foundation has the mandate to raise one million dollars to be delivered to the Alberta Government when construction is completed. In addition to the one million dollars, the Foundation is raising five hundred thousand dollars to ensure our middle school has all required facility upgrades for Arts Immersion program delivery.

We thank the CAA Foundation for their dedication and thank all donors for their support of this unique project.

At this point in time, Calgary Arts Academy has two locations: our middle school is located at the Knob Hill School (Years 6 to 9) and our elementary school is located at Glenmeadows Elementary School (Years Kindergarten to Year 5.) In August 2017, Glenmeadows will house our middle school students and Knob Hill will house our Elementary students. This first move will help prepare our community for all Year 4 to 9 students to move to the Youth Campus Education Centre in January 2018.

We now look forward to requesting permission to provide high school programming. Our revised High School Application is ready to be submitted to the Minister of Education in the near future.
