General Information

Description: Foothills Academy, located in Calgary, Alberta has been a leader in Learning Disabilities since 1979. Each classroom has only 12-14 students and is staffed by a highly knowledgeable teacher and educational assistant, which allows us to truly get to know and connect with each child. Teachers work beyond the academics, giving great significance to supporting their students ability to develop the skills to successfully and independently organize, plan, and study, as well as ensuring that students become strong self-advocates and have a high sense of self worth, resilience, and confidence. Transitions to post-secondary education are focused on throughout high school, as all students are expected to have the opportunity of post secondary education and career success when they graduate.
