École Olds High School is part of the Community Learning Campus (CLC). The CLC is an innovative approach to high school, post-secondary, and community education. The CLC addresses specific rural needs by sharing resources and working jointly with a variety of community groups and agencies. Currently, we have about 600 students, grades 9 - 12 enrolled at our school. ÉOHS is embracing a high school experience that provides more schedule flexibility and increased student self-direction in order to better serve 21st Century learners. The physical design of our facility reflects a non-traditional (non-industrial model) personalized learning environment. Organized around four learning communities or ‘Quads,’ core subjects are embraced by interdisciplinary teams of teachers working with a fixed group of students. Our teaching staff is extensively involved in a variety of professional development activities besides normal conference and workshop involvements. Our staff are leaders on district committees, they are active diploma and achievement exam markers and test designers, and we are all committed to lifelong learning alongside our students. Our school programs focus on preparedness after high school for our students. Post-Secondary Preparation, Career Connections, Green Certificates, RAP and Dual Credit programming are all current opportunities offered to students at EOHS.
Our school is an active part of the Olds community. Involvement of businesses and individuals in our programs and operations has strengthened and diversified the educational opportunities available to our students. The support of parents, students, and local organizations has assisted in the evolution of a school that we are all proud of École Olds High School is a proud member of the UNESCO Associated School’s network and a Fair Trade School.
Academic excellence is achieved by many students and attainable by most who dedicate their efforts towards success at École Olds High School.

The focus throughout is to provide opportunities and assistance to maximize success. Aside from the curricular programming there is a large collection of extra-curricular groups.
