This is an opportunity for you to share the benefits of education choice you’ve experienced and why education choice matters to you.

These videos may be shared publicly by PCE in order to expand public awareness of education choices available in our province and how these choices are successfully meeting the needs of Alberta students.

You may be a student, parent, teacher, administrator, grandparent or entire family who wants to share how education choice has benefited you.

Why

Education choice deserves to be celebrated!

At its heart, education choice is truly focused on the success of the student - ensuring each child has access to an education setting that best fits their unique and diverse learning needs, whether that is:

  • a neighborhood public school
  • a separate (Catholic) school
  • an alternative program within a public/separate school division with a specialized focus (i.e. language, sports, arts, faith, academic, behaviour)
  • a Francophone school
  • a charter school with a unique emphasis and pedagogical approach
  • a private school
  • home education
  • online/distance learning

The reason such a variety of education choices exist is to meet the wide range of diverse needs of Alberta children and families.

Let’s work together to showcase the heart of education choice in Alberta, spreading public awareness of the range of education choice options available in our province and how these choices are successfully meeting the needs of Alberta students!
