How do I go about gaining entrance for my child into the Academy at King Edward?
1. The Academy at King Edward ensures that each applicant meets Division criterion for our program. Additionally, we are looking for students has an excellent attendance rates, and no behavioral programming support needs.
2. Your child's current Edmonton Public would need to make a SNAP (internal computerized placement request) on your behalf.
3. Families must remember that a SNAP request does not guarantee a placement. Space is determined during the pre-enrollment phase (March 9th-April 15th) as spaces open up once current students confirm that they are transferring back to their community school.
4. We encourage all new families to attend the new student/parent orientation in May. A letter with more details will be sent out once placement is confirmed. Only accepted families can attend this meeting.
Is there an Open House?
No, we do not host an Open House as our program has entrance criteria. We will grant tours to interested parents of eligible students.
How is priority for admission determined?
Where the number of students eligible for the program exceeds the space available, the principal of the program will prioritize on the basis of eligibility, anticipated effectiveness of the programming, and alignment with Division's special needs placement requirements for our program.
