Bienvenue à l'École Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic School

At OLPH, our students' academic experience comes first! 

École Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic School (OLPH) resides within the family of Elk Island Catholic Schools (EICS) and is part of Alberta's publicly-funded education system. OLPH is a French Immersion middle school, providing 21st century, quality Catholic education in both official languages, for students in Grades 5 to 8. At OLPH, we work in community to ensure the success of each learner and to foster respect for life and learning. We value the positive benefits of acquiring a second language in a safe, orderly and caring environment where each individual’s qualities and uniqueness are nurtured and enhanced.

École Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic School offers a faith filled, safe and caring environment for young adolescents. Our students enjoy authentic French culture activities, participate and lead social justice initiatives, are presented with many leadership opportunities and can get involed in Sports Teams and Intramurals. 

Next year, during the 2019-2020 school year, OLPH will be becoming a dual-track, welcoming many more students and providing new opportunities such as the Sports For Life Program, a Performing Arts program, as well as many more options.  We are also going to be offering new CTF options, such as Foods and Construction with the addition of our brand new Foods and Construction classrooms.
