Académie Saint-André Academy’s kindergarten program is based on the developmental approach to growing and learning, whether in English or French immersion. It contributes to a positive self-concept while enhancing each child's physical, emotional, social, creative, moral, intellectual, and spiritual development. Our Kindergarten programs are full days, two days a week, and every other Friday. Busing is available to our kindergarten students. ASAA is open to students of ALL FAITHS.

ASAA is proud to offer exemplary early learning programs to all students at our school. Our students become welcome and loved members of the ASAA school community and have all of the support and services available to students in our elementary schools. Your child has access to

  • A certified teacher to support programming in French or English
  • Vital opportunities to interact/partner with older students
  • Large gymnasium and a variety of equipment to keep physically active
  • Up-to-date libraries to grow a love of reading 
  • Qualified instruction in music and fine arts
  • Special presentations, speakers, and other celebrations enjoyed by the elementary school community
  • Early intervention supports and resources such as speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, and our division psychologist

Please have a birth certificate, passport, or citizenship document ready to scan with it and a baptismal certificate if available.  The form also requires the child's Alberta Health Number.

Please choose either Mon/Wed or Tues/Thurs classes and an English or French Immersion program for Kindergarten. There is no full time kindergarten.  

Please note: The amended provincial Education Act will implement a standardized entry age for kindergarten students. Children must be five by December 31, the year they begin school. You can read more on the STAR Catholic website.


 "Early childhood is a significant period in human development.  Independence, initiative, decision-making, creativity, the ability to learn, relate to others, and feelings of self-worth all begin in early childhood. What young children learn at this stage will have a major impact on successful learning experiences in school, on personal development, and future participation in society" (Alberta Education).
