Schools In Red Deer

Red Deer has many school options for families. There are multiple schools for children pre-k to high school in the public and Catholic educational districts. There is also the option of online schooling for grades 8-12. Most schools follow the traditional school year, but St Patrick’s Community school is a year-round school that many families and kids appreciate. There are also options available for those families who are wanting French immersion or Spanish bilingual programs and several private schools.


The schools are all located within the different neighborhoods so that it is easy for families to get their children to school. Most kids should not find it too far to utilize their bikes, scooters, skate boards or even walking to get to the school that is in their catchment. There is also city transit for kids that are in middle school or high school within the city at student rates. For elementary students they may use the yellow school bus if they are eligible within the city or are in the Red Deer county surrounding areas.


Red Deer also enjoys the availability of college courses offered by Red Deer College, Academy of Learning Career College and Academic Express. Recently RDC was approved to begin the process of becoming a university which will help students be able to stay in Red Deer to complete their studies.
