- At UP Academy Private School, we offer every student an individualized program.
- All students can work at their own pace.
- Students are not held back to the speed of a class, nor are they pushed ahead before they have mastered a concept.
- We use the Alberta Curriculum as an absolute minimum standard and choose from some of the best curricula worldwide.
- Our parents must register as home-schoolers, giving families and our programs the flexibility to choose individualized programming.
Enhancing Human Potential by Increasing one’s Capacity to Learn
As our society evolves at an ever-increasing speed, schools must respond in kind. Technology is rapidly changing our world, and our students must master the skills to advance along with it. The UP Academy faculty, staff and curriculum design leaders work toward giving students an education that keeps pace with our current expectations and blasts forward into the future.

Personalized learning is at the core of all we do. Utilizing the latest learning strategy and technology, we can adapt to each student’s level of learning in all subject areas.
Technology helps us eliminate the “learning gaps” we often see happening in traditional educational institutions.
In addition, positive reinforcement is consistent throughout the student’s learning programs. This results in a positive learning environment for all our students and eliminates the loss of confidence many students experience.
Collaboration will be an “in-demand skill” by the year 2030. UP Academy graduates will have those skills mastered and then some.
Technology can assist us with many things; however, our students must learn to excel in skills technology cannot. The skill sets of human knowledge and face-to-face interactions are already sought-after skills.
Application of skills is paramount. Gone are the days of students cramming for an exam and forgetting the information the next day. All students will have demonstrated the application of their knowledge daily, weekly and monthly. In addition, the skills of organization, collaboration and productivity are further enhanced by internships, mentoring,
and collaboration projects.
Continually developing a curriculum is critical to delivering an outstanding educational program. Students, teachers, parents and staff will work side by side in developing some of the most dynamic curricula ever designed and will ensure its fluidity.
