Ecole Secondaire Notre Dame High School
Welcome to the 2019 ASAA Provincial Goll Site. Calgary Academy is an eager and enthusiastic host and we want to welcome everyone across the province to this prestigious High School event. Our campus is located atop a hill on the western edge of Calgary, and as such we enjoy a backyard filled with nature, access to the mountains, and a stunning view. Both Golf Courses being used for the 2018 ASAA Golf Championship are located in the very same backyard and we expect that participants, coaches, and spectators will have their breath taken away both by the beauty around them and the ups and downs that make this thing called golf amazing.
As a school, we specialize in individualized education as we expertly guide and champion a diverse range of learners from Grade 1 through 12. Amongst other things, activity and athletics is certainly an important driver for students at Calgary Academy. As such, our Calgary Academy Knights are involved in a wide range of sports and athletic inititiaves throughout the year. From school sports such as golf, volleyball, cross country running, basketball, curling, soccer, badminton, ultimate and others to programs such as outdoor school and CA Ski and Snowboard Club (CASSC), to big events like our Dig Pink Volleyball Tournament, there are plenty of opportunities for our student athletes to be grow through the vehicle of sport.
Expanding on this, we work diligently to create other opportunities for our elementary and junior high students to explore and expand their own physical literacy while developing skills and confidence through quality and daily physicaly education, early morning Spark activities, and after school programs on Wednesday afternoons where activities such as dance, fencing, ice hockey, golf, self-defense and a cornucopia of other experiences are organized, created and enjoyed.
In all cases, life at Calgary Academy is designed around the success, joy, and genuine growth of individuals and we are excited to promote and promise the same expectation for all participants in this year’s tournament
