Program Info

Ronald Harvey (Grades 4 to 6) and W.D. Cuts (Grades 7 to 9) are the only schools in St. Albert to offer this unique program! Our school schedule allows us to offer diverse programming without affecting the academic demands on the student.

At Ronald Harvey (4-6),¬†we are devoting one afternoon a week to our recreational academy activities. ¬†Students will miss two art periods and one physical education period — no other classes (no core subjects are missed.

At WD Cuts (7-9), we are devoting three afternoons a week to active living opportunities while still offering our strong advisory program and other option choices within the scheduled day. Students will seldom miss their academic classes of math, science, social studies, language arts or physical education if they choose our Rec Academy.


A monthly fee will be assessed to cover only the costs of busing and entrance fees. The fee is set at $75 per month for the Elementary REC Academy at Ronald Harvey and $150 per month for the Junior High REC Academy at William D Cuts.
