Delta West Academy (DWA) is a university-preparatory, accredited independent school which challenges average to gifted students to achieve exceptional outcomes from Jr. K-12. How is it done? DWA teachers are specialists that believe children learn and grow best in an interesting, creative and interactive learning environment. Small class sizes (average 10:1 ratio) ensure student participation for developing independent critical thinkers, creative problem-solvers, and dynamic achievers. Studies are enriched in all subjects and all grades, and include Spanish, French, Fine & Performing Arts, Athletics, Outdoor Education and Community Service as part of active citizenship. Delta West Academy is fully wireless with personal laptops for grades 6–12, ActivBoard classrooms for all grades and a Smartable for Kindergarten. A testament to the DWA program is the consistently excellent achievement on provincial tests, a 100% graduation rate for Grade 12’s and a 96% transition rate to top universities and colleges since DWA’s inception in 1993.

Larger goals for DWA students are focused on social respect, diversity and global citizenship. The low student to teacher ratio allows for pro-active social communication especially with younger students which greatly increases the social harmony in the school. For teens usually struggling with peer and media pressure, the smaller DWA community allows students to be more true to themselves, accepting each other more generously and welcoming cultural diversity. This journey in character and culture is complemented by leadership opportunities and international travel studies from Grades 9-12.

Delta West Academy has established a strong, dynamic educational program and a true sense of collaborative community in the firm belief that “a successful future starts with an excellent school experience.” To learn more about the difference Delta West Academy can make in your child’s life, contact us at 403.290.0767 or visit
