About Our School
Assumption RC School is nestled in the rural community of Oyen, in eastern Alberta. The town, with its population of approximately 1200 residents, is perfect for raising a family with its small-town pace of life. You will find a curling and hockey rink, baseball diamonds, a brand new swimming pool, a golf course, soccer fields, two dance studios, 4-H Programs, and lots more; there is something for everyone. The atmosphere in our school reflects the welcoming, friendly, and family oriented feeling of the community.
Assumption Roman Catholic School is known as the “Little Gem on the Prairie”. We are a Pre-Kindergarten to Grade Six Elementary School that offers a strong academic, Catholic education to over thirty students in a warm, caring and safe environment. We welcome all denominations. Reading intervention, enhanced reading and special education programming assist student success and teacher effectiveness. A superb Parent Council reinforces and supports our school. We have a great teacher to student ratio that you may not find in any other school. The School Division Motto of “Leave Not One Heart Behind” defines our school. With small class sizes, and devoted staff, your children will have the opportunity to thrive, experiment, grow and realize their full potential. There is always someone to sit and play with, because at Assumption, we are family.
At Assumption, we live in the Redeemer’s Way. We live and act in Respect of our Church, our School, our Community, our Parents, our Teachers, and our fellow Students. We believe greatness is expected of us, and we are ready to give it. This is who we are, whether you are watching or not.
