Welcome to Jack James High School


Jack James High School is a Knowledge and Employability school for students who learn best through an experiential and personalized learning approach. Jack James High School promotes academic success through a number of supports that work toward the primary goal of high school completion. The school currently offers both a Knowledge & Employability Certificate and/or a High School Diploma, in addition to two non-credit Pace Learning Program (PLP) classes. The central focus of the school is to successfully transition students from high school to the workplace, apprenticeships, and post-secondary.


Our work at Jack James High School is purposeful around our motto of Pride, Perseverance and Integrity. It involves a partnership between staff, students, parents and external resources to provide our students with support and growth opportunities to become confident, goal oriented citizens who are employable in a demanding and adaptive society. As individuals and as a collective we promote and develop an environment that is accountable and proud of our accomplishments. This teaches us to never give up, and to believe in our talents while striving to do what's best and right.

Events Calendar
Enhanced Security Awareness at Our Schools

We would like to notify all users and visitors of a security concern that exists in our high school.


This concern is the result of email threats which are being investigated by the Calgary Police Service (CPS).


On February 10, the CPS issued a statement about their investigation which you can access here.


The CPS, the Calgary Catholic School District (CCSD) and the Calgary Board of Education (CBE) are working through a coordinated response to this situation.


The safety and security of our students and staff is of utmost importance to us. Our school has instituted appropriate security and safety precautions in consultation with CPS and appreciates the co-operation of students, parents and visitors. These steps include an increased police presence around our schools.


We are sharing information as part of our commitment to provide open communication to parents and our school communities. We will provide additional information when it becomes available.
