Edge School for Athletes
At Edge School, a passion for sport drives a passion for learning and leading.
As a university preparatory program, Edge School challenges student-athletes in Grades 5-12 to achieve a level of excellence reflecting their personal best. Through the purposeful integration of academics, athletics and character-building, we offer an innovative learning environment where student-athletes achieve a balanced life.
Edge school offers skill training in dance, figure skating, soccer, golf and hockey. Our flex academy program is for student-athletes with demanding schedules, training in other sports such as luge, swimming, tennis, equestrian, and gymnastics. In our model, sport is a vehicle for character development; instructors and coaches highlight fair play, teamwork and integrity in all aspects of training and competition.
Edge student-athletes receive a complete education with small class sizes and personal learning plans. Supported by a broad range of accredited course offerings, post-secondary counselling, and college scholarship services, Edge supports each student-athlete to achieve their athletic and academic goals.
Edge is committed to the holistic development of student-athletes. Extensive, in-house health services such as a nutritional program, sport psychology support, high performance training centre and an on-site Athletic Therapy Clinic are just a few of the ways the school ensures success for its students and families.
Since the first graduating class in 2004, Edge students have been recognized and accepted into some of the world’s most prestigious universities and organizations. With alumni attending Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Queen’s University, Julliard School, and Joffrey Ballet School, Edge is proud of every student-athletes achievement.
Located in the west end of Calgary, the 170,000-square-foot facility is a world-class athletic, recreational and community-use complex housing two NHL-sized arenas, two NBA-sized courts, two professional dance studios, a golf centre, and more.
