Holy Redeemer Catholic Jr/Sr High School serves the educational needs of the Edson and area Roman Catholic Community. Since opening in 2003 we have continued to provide an excellent grade 7 - 12 program that has expanded to almost 400 students.
Edson is a bustling community on the Yellowhead highway about 200 kilometres west of Edmonton. Coal mining, forestry, and oil and gas exploration are the key employers in this resource-based town. Holy Redeemer was completely renovated and updated to provide students with a facility for a comprehensive high school program. Our Drama facility is considered the best west of Edmonton; our science labs are fully equipped to facilitate a rich science program; the Industrial Arts room encompasses state of the art woodworking equipment; and our technology is state-of the-art.
