Welcome to Louise Dean School


Louise Dean School is a specialized grade 9 – 12 program for pregnant and parenting teens. The comprehensive education program allows students to complete a high school diploma or certificate, while affording them flexible scheduling for maternity leaves, counselling or lifestyle challenges. Learning support is highly personalized to meet academic and emotional needs. The school follows the traditional calendar, but also has a five week site-based summer school program.  Intake is continuous to ensure that all students have immediate access to supports.


Louise Dean School has a formal partnership with Catholic Family Service and Alberta Health Services which guarantees that all students access ‘wrap-around’ supports.  These supports include onsite subsidized childcare for infants, counselling, prenatal care, parenting classes, financial assistance and career counselling.


Balancing the demands of full time school and parenting is a challenge; however students at Louise Dean School learn to work together to move their lives forward. The school is a very safe and caring environment where students are supported to set high personal and family goals. If a student is looking to return to school or is interested in transferring from another school program, please contact the office for additional information or a tour.

Donated Items

The holiday season was made much brighter at Louise Dean School due to support from our community donors.  On behalf of all of the staff and students, thank you for your kindness.

Throughout the school year, students are very grateful for donations; however due to storage limitations, we are unable to accept donations of used clothing or childcare items at the school. We collaborate with that and other charities to support our students. We ask that you please be in touch with them if you have donations.




To register at Louise Dean School, please call Candice at 403-777 7630.
