Pre Enrolment and Registration Update

Thanks to all the families who pre-enrolled before the deadline to help our school get ready for 2024- 2025! We are happy to let you know that, based on available space, all students who registered or pre-enrolled before March 22nd, 2024, have been accepted to Thelma Chalifoux School. However, decisions regarding acceptance into the STEM program for Grade 7, 8 and 9 will be finalized between April 2nd and April 12th, 2024.

Thelma Chalifoux School is now FULL in planned classes in the STEM and Regular program. We will now only accept resident students who are newly moved into the school's attendance area for the REGULAR program. A resident student of Edmonton Public Schools has at least one parent or legal guardian living in Edmonton who is not Roman Catholic. Non-resident students can enrol in another Division school with space in planned classes. 

If you are new to Edmonton Public Schools, you must register online. 

Welcome to Thelma Chalifoux School, where our mission is to nurture and empower each student to become their best self. At our school, we believe in the power of creativity, personal growth, and the principle of otipêmisiwak – teaching students the importance of self-accountability and being their own boss. Our unique programs, including a diverse range of extracurricular activities, a social media and broadcasting club, and an inclusive house system, foster a collaborative and supportive community. We emphasize the value of STEM education in developing resilience, problem-solving skills, and an innovative mindset. Our students' experiences reflect significant personal growth, from overcoming shyness to developing strong leadership skills and learning to embrace challenges and failures as essential steps in the learning process. At Thelma Chalifoux School, we are dedicated to providing a transformative educational experience, empowering our students to explore endless possibilities and confidently shape their own futures.

Senator Thelma Chalifoux, our school’s namesake, was known for being a strong and independent woman, unwilling to back down from fighting for the issues she cared about. She valued hard work and dedication, which led to her appointment to the Senate of Canada. It’s these same values that we work to instill in our students at TCS as we prepare them for high school and what lies beyond their academic careers.
