Inclusion is “a way of thinking and acting that demonstrates universal acceptance and promotes and sense of belonging for ALL learners” (Alberta Education).

Inclusion is a values based learning path that embraces diversity and learner difference AND promotes equal opportunity and access for ALL learners.

Thomas Groome, a notable Catholic theologian speaks to universal inclusivity.  He explains the word “catholic” is derived from the Greek word “kata holos” which means “welcoming or to include all”. Greater St. Albert Catholic Schools is a welcoming, Christ-centered learning community.  

Our District is dedicated to providing a continuum of supports and services for all students and for each student including students with diverse learning needs.  Through a continuum of universal, targeted and intensive individualized supports and services, school learning teams work collaboratively with District Office personnel to identify and meet the needs of ALL learners.  

Inclusive Education in Greater St. Albert Catholic Schools blends a flexible student centred approach, responsive to the strengths and needs of each and every student by creating inclusive learning experiences within the context of our Catholic faith, to ensure that all students are able to access and be successful in learning opportunities.  

In Greater St. Albert Catholic School, inclusive education is an approach, rather than a place, which values choice in programming and placement to best meet students' learning needs.
