Fort School

Fort School, as part of the Inquiring Minds Network, is a unique week-long onsite program where students are able to explore, discover and inquire into their learning.

Fort School is unique in that it situates students within the living history of Edmonton and moves them beyond the curriculum to give them an understanding of the history of their city, their communities, and how they can shape the future of both. Prior to their arrival at Fort School, teachers and the Fort School Educator create an individualized program for the class for their week. This program is developed around the Alberta curriculum and ensures that students are able to engage in hands-on, cross-curricular learning during the week. Lessons link students to social studies, language arts, math, science health, and art curriculum. When they arrive, students participate in a variety of multi-sensory and diverse learning activities that brings their education to life through inquiry, experiential learning. Through the student’s use of journals both prior to and after their visit, Fort School becomes a year-long learning experience that continually ties back to their time at Fort Edmonton Park. It is always the goal to foster life-long learning.

Information regarding applications to Fort School will be available in January 2018.
