Our students work hard to expand their potential in a number of diverse ways. Equally diverse are the kind of awards available, both to recognize their efforts and to support them in their future aspirations. For more information on awards, visit Student Services.
In order to qualify for an academic award, students must have obtained at least 30 credits completed at the grade level for which the award was intended in subjects at a high school in Sturgeon School Division. Alberta Distance Learning Center (ADLC) courses administered at a high school in Sturgeon School Division may be considered as part of the 30 credits. All of our Academic Awards are guided by Board Policy F/III/3 and Admin Practice Education Services 8.
