Understanding education options in Alberta

Alberta "offers the greatest degree of school choice in Canada", according to a cross-Canada comparative analysis Measuring Choice and Competition in Canadian Education, published by the Barbara Mitchell Centre for Improvement in Education.

Alberta's wide array of education choices include government public schools, separate (Catholic) schools, Francophone schools, independent schools, home education, charter schools, as well as a broad range of alternative programs within public and separate schools.  

More in-depth information about these various options is available on the Alberta government "Education Options" page, as well as through a variety of additional organizations, articles and videos, some of which are listed below.
