Connect Golden Hills School Division

Welcome to the 2015-2016 Golden Hills school year! We're very excited to welcome all of our new and returning students. Our office staff are here to help you with any questions so feel free to contact them. Don't forget to bring your final transcript, in English, from the school you last attended. The school must have this transcript in order to plan a class schedule that will help you be successful at Golden Hills. Orientation is different for each school. You can find orientation information for Strathmore High School, Drumheller Valley Secondary School, Crowther Memorial Jr. High School, Three Hills School and Prairie Christian Academy. For those students attending any of our other schools, orientation will occur on the first day of classes. Your school contacts will let you know more details when you arrive at the school.


What makes our schools really incredible?

Golden Hills School Division encompasses a vast geographical area across rural mid-eastern Alberta. We value our diverse environments and the communities we are part of that are rich with culture and educational opportunities. But what makes our schools really incredible? Our students are inspired by outstanding teachers and our international students welcomed with open arms. Our dormitory leaders and homestay parents nurture and encourage students and help make their residence both a place they can call home and a sanctuary where they can relax and study. Home is where the heart is and our students are always at home at Golden Hills International.
