New Calgary Schools
Calgary has been experiencing substantial growth over the past five years, and as a result, more and more families have chosen to move to suburban communities causing the demand for schools to increase. In response to the growing need for more schools throughout the province, the Alberta Government has dedicated multiple new schools to be constructed in Calgary. Below is a list of the schools being built, the communities they are in, and the projected opening dates.
How many new schools are being constructed in Calgary?
There are 30 new schools scheduled to open in Calgary in the next three years.
Will my child get to attend the new school?
Due to an increase in the school aged population, in the communities new schools are being constructed, the Calgary Board of Education and Calgary Catholic School District are not able to guarantee all students living within those communities will be able to attend a new school. Some communities will have multiple designated schools and parents should call their preferred designated school to inquire if space is available.

Calgary Board of Education registration is not determined on a first come, first served basis, so it is not necessary to register on the first day registration opens. However, registering your child as soon as possible helps our principals plan and prepare accordingly for the new school year.
How do I register my child for a Calgary Public School currently under construction?
If your child currently attends a designated regular program school, they will be automatically transferred to the new school.
Please visit the Calgary Board of Education website, Registering at a Calgary Public School That is Under Construction, for more information and the appropriate registration form.
