General Information

Progressive Academy is an independent private school providing excellent results in educating children from Kindergarten to Grade 12 in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada since 1984. We also deliver an exceptional preschool educational program for children 3 and 4 years of age.

Progressive Academy is centrally located in Glenora, providing easy access to Edmonton and area residents. Our premises are five blocks from Edmonton’s beautiful river valley, the Edmonton Space and Science Centre and downtown Edmonton. Our students are able to take an active part in Edmonton’s many exceptional community resources.

Our school facilities include classrooms, a technology centre, auditorium, library, music and art classrooms, two performance stages and a full-size gymnasium.

Literacy

Truly the foundation of the ability to learn, literacy is a primary focus of the Progressive Academy program.

Technology

They’re growing up in a new age; one that demands more technical expertise and creativity.

Entrepreneurs

Confidence, self-worth, motivation and a drive to succeed. These are the qualities we instil in students.

Performing and Visual Arts

A balanced education includes much more than a few core subjects, and at Progressive we have lots of visual and performing arts opportunities for students.

Traffic

Please do not make 3-point turns near the school. The map attached shows that wherever you have parked near the school, it is possible to just drive forward to exit. Never back into intersections. The intersection by the school has four directions of students crossing, and backing into these spaces is extremely dangerous. Remember that the speed limit around schools is 30 km/h. When you enter the area, please respect all the neighbours and children walking to school by driving slowly even before entering the school zones.

Covid-19 Checklist

Students in Junior Kindergarten and all students in Out of School Care will be required to fill out an electronic declaration every day. A link to the form will be sent to your email directly. For all other K-9 students who do not attend out of school care, parents must perform the Alberta Covid-19 Health Daily Checklist with each student before getting on a bus or entering the school. We do not require a paper copy of this, it is simply a self-assessment tool.

Drop off and Pick up Procedures

This document (click here) is the most current procedure for drop off and pick up. In order to minimize the opportunities for close contact, doors will be open at 8:30 and students should be dropped off by 9:00 at the latest. Drop offs after 9:00 must enter at the south west door and proceed to reception for temperature checks. Should you have specific questions regarding these procedures, please talk to your classroom teacher. Please see this post if you need a copy of the school map.

Student entrance map updated

In the rush to get information out to parents, some information was missed on the entrance map. Please see this version which has been updated.
