Admission’s at River Valley School is based on several factors, the most important of which is knowing that you have found the right place for your child.

At River Valley School academic testing is not required as part of the admissions process. It’s our job to find out how they learn, what they’re passionate about and what steps need to be taken to ensure that every student will flourish academically and socially at River Valley School. Following the completion of the online application and receipt of the application deposit, our Admissions team will review your child’s educational history and other relevant documents to prior to enrolment.

For more information please contact or call 403-246-2275

Please note: We are limited by our facilities and expertise, so are unable to provide for children with medical fragility and severe emotional, behavioural and oppositional defiance disorders.

International students – River Valley School is happy to welcome international students, however they must be residing in Canada with a parent or legal guardian. A typical example is an adult that has relocated to Canada for work and the children have accompanied them. We do not offer boarding or a homestay program. International students residing in Canada with their parents may not be eligible for the Alberta Education Funding for Resident Students so international tuition rates may apply.
