Help us choose! Formal name change of St. Albert Catholic High School - community survey

At its regular board meeting on June 22, 2020, our Board of Trustees approved a motion to change the formal name of St. Albert Catholic High School (SACHS) to reflect its growing French Immersion identity and programs.

A name change is required to reflect the bilingual focus of the school. It is a common practice in all school jurisdictions throughout Alberta – including within our own Division – to name schools that provide French Immersion programs to reflect such a dual-track focus.

Although the school’s signage will be revised to reflect the new name, once it is formally approved, no significant re-branding to the school’s corporate identity will be required (e.g. the abbreviation ‘SACHS,’ school logo, sports team name, etc. will remain SACHS).

The Board is considering two options and sought the community’s input through a community survey before it makes a final decision.

The survey closed on Sept. 8, 2020.

We are now compiling and analyzing the results of the survey, and a report will be prepared and submitted to the Board of Trustees at the regular Board meeting on Sept. 28, 2020.

The Board’s decision will be shared with our students, parents/legal guardians, and staff.

Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey and for providing your input.
