97% diploma pass rate a ‘monumental moment’ for Mount St Agnes

Mount Saint Agnes Academy announced yesterday that 97 percent of the 2013 graduating class earned the Alberta High School Diploma.

They were MSA's first class to receive the diploma. The class was also first to complete all of their high school education with the Alberta curriculum in place at the school.

MSA received its accreditation from Alberta Education earlier this year, four years after adopting the curriculum.

Principal Sue Moench described the achievement as a “monumental moment in MSA's history.”

“The results speak not only to the dedication and focus of our students, who have embraced an entirely new approach to learning, but also to our faculty, staff, and board who have worked diligently to ensure the implementation of this world class curriculum,” Ms. Moench said.

“We are looking forward to continued success as the elementary and middle school students progress through our new curriculum,” she added. “The student-centred, inquiry-based approach fosters critical thinking and problem solving, which are necessary skills in today's society.”

The Alberta Education system has been internationally recognised for its success. Students in its programme of study have ranked among the top performers in the world in math, science and reading in international student assessments.
