The Medicine Hat Catholic Board of Education is thrilled to announce that our school division has been officially granted full construction funding for a K-9 school in the Government of Alberta’s New schools in Alberta’s growing communities announcement yesterday afternoon.

The funding approval marks a significant milestone in our journey towards our goal of building a new, state of the art Catholic school, that will be known as Holy Trinity Academy. Holy Trinity Academy will combine three of our current schools; St. Francis Xavier, St. Michael’s and St. Mary’s into one school community, located on the current St. Francis Xavier school site (318 - 8th Street NE) adjacent to Monsignor McCoy High School.

The highly anticipated K-9 school will support students from Early Learning to grade 9, with a well established fine arts program, as well as wellness/multisport academy. The school will be equipped with a 400 seat theatre, accessible to all division schools and community organizations as well as two full sized gymnasiums, a beautiful sacred space, a physical literacy space, CTS suite, sensory and wellness rooms as well as many other classrooms and learning spaces.

The Board of Trustees is eager to move forward with this project now that funding has been approved and is committed to regular communication with staff, students and community stakeholders regarding the new school project.
