Lethbridge is proud of its education system and facilities. Our community is committed to quality education from pre-school and kindergarten all the way through to our college and university.
There are 17 elementary schools, five junior high schools, three high schools and one integrated occupational school between the Lethbridge public and Catholic school systems. Another Christian school operates from pre-kindergarten through Grade 12 and a Francophone public community school serves Lethbridge and area from pre-school to Grade 12. Many Lethbridge schools also have programming in place to meet the needs of children with learning disabilities.
For post-secondary students, Lethbridge College, Canada’s first publicly-funded community college, offers a wide array of career-focused programs, while the University of Lethbridge has been a destination for students seeking a comprehensive liberal education for more than 50 years.
