Slovak Heritage School in Edmonton
Slovak Heritage School was opened in September 2017. Our school offers the Slovak language courses to students from Kindergarten to Grade 12. We also offer Slovak language course for adults. Our classes run on Saturday mornings in Lord of Life Lutheran Church located in South Edmonton area. Slovak Heritage School (campus Edmonton) closely cooperates with Slovak School – Slovenska skola in Calgary (campus Calgary) Both schools are roofed by the non-profit organization Slovak School – Slovenska Skola Foundation.
The primary goal of Slovak Heritage School in Edmonton is to preserve Slovak language and culture and hence preserve multiculturalism of Alberta province. Our students will have an opportunity to embrace the Slovak language via project based learning. While working on assigned projects, students will build their reading, writing, listening and speaking skills and learn about the culture and history of Slovakia and Central European milieu. This approach fosters language skills and diversity awareness by encouraging students to problem solve and collaborate on learning objectives. Our curriculum will develop the critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creativity skills necessary for the success of our students.
