New Student Registrations and Pre-enrolment for 2023-24

Please join us at our Open House on Thursday, February 15, 2024 from 5:30 - 6:30 pm. All families are welcome to attend. 

Our school will also be hosting our Scholastic Book Fair in Room 1 during our Open House.

Get ready for the 2024–25 school year! Sign in to your parent SchoolZone account between February 1 and March 22 to select your child’s preferred school for next year. Whether your child is staying at the same school or changing schools, all students need to pre-enrol. Knowing how many students to expect helps schools prepare to welcome them in September.

École Queen Alexandra School is accepting new students for the 2024-25 school year in both of our Logos (Christian programming) in Kindergarten to Grade 6 and in our French Immersion program from Kindergarten to Grade 4. If you would like more information than what is found on this website, please contact us at the school at 780-439-2516.

 

Logos parents: if you are wanting to register in our Logos program, we encourage you to see this letter for information about the Logos Society and general Logos enrolment information for the 2024-25 school year.

If you need help, contact the school or read the pre-enrolment handout.

Moved?
Are you an existing student and have moved? Update your child’s current address with the school office before updating it in SchoolZone prior to pre-enrolment. 

NEW STUDENT REGISTRATION to the Division
Instead of using SchoolZone, students who are new to Edmonton Public Schools need to submit a completed Student Registration form. Find the form and list of supporting documents you need to provide here. If you are new to EPSB or registering for kindergarten, you must register online.

CURRENT DIVISION STUDENTS PRE-ENROL
Sign in to your parent SchoolZone account between February 1 and March 22 to select your child’s preferred school for next year. Find important dates and deadlines and learn more about pre-enrolment, which opens Thursday, February 1.

Current Year 2023-24

For the 2023-24 school year, École Queen Alexandra School is full in planned classes in Grades 2 and 3 in the Logos Christian Program. We will no longer accept enrolment requests for these grades.

We are still accepting new student registration and enrollment for the 2023-24 school year:

  • Kindergarten, Grades 1, 4, 5 and 6 Logos Christian Program
  • Kindergarten to Grade 3 French Immersion Program 
  • as French Immersion is a new program to our school, subsequent grades will be added each year to become a Kindergarten to Grade 6 French Immersion Program.

If your child is new to Edmonton Public Schools, you can register for school online. Visit the Division website to learn how to register for school.

 

Principal's Message

Welcome to École Queen Alexandra School, home of two alternative programs -  Logos Christian and French Immersion! 

In September 2024, our school will be offering the French Immersion Program for Kindergarten, Grades 1 to 4. As the first group of students moves into the next grade, we will expand the Program by one grade level until we reach Grade 6.  

Our staff, student and parent communities are excited about the new programming. We look forward to co-creating the future of École Queen Alexandra School with our new students and their families. 

École Queen Alexandra School fosters high academic learning through excellence in teaching and commitment for the growth of each student as they excel socially, academically and physically.

Our school focuses on the importance of teaching children how to become optimal learners. We learn about the brain, self-regulation and use the MindUp and Positive Behaviour Principles programs to provide skills and strategies for student learning. We are committed to creating a thriving, dynamic and inspiring educational environment that produces self-directed learners to confidently prepare them for their future.

In collaboration with parents and our community partners, students maximize their potential by being supported through differentiated programming and developing behaviours necessary for their success in school and their chosen career pathway.

The Logos Christian Program allows students to develop academic skills while integrating biblical principles into all areas of study. It provides an opportunity for students to live out Christian values, morals and beliefs in supportive and nurturing environments. The Logos Christian Program is a non-denominational faith-based program welcoming all families and religions.

The French Immersion Alternative Program is one I know well. Prior to coming to Queen Alexandra School, I celebrated 27 years of teaching experience in French Immersion and French as a Second Language programming. French Immersion is a program of choice that begins in Kindergarten or Grade 1 and continues to Grade 12. In this program, French is the language of instruction for core subjects. 

After completing the French immersion program, your child will be:

  • fluent in French
  • able to live, work and pursue post-secondary studies in French, English, or both languages
  • part of and have an understanding and appreciation of Francophone culture
  • proficient in English
  • able to appreciate other languages, cultures and communities in Canada and around the world

I'm elated to be working collaboratively with our Logos Christian and French Immersion families. Our staff looks forward to welcoming new families to both alternative programs! École Queen Alexandra School is a fantastic place to learn!
