For over 50 years, St. Emile School has provided a quality Catholic education for families in Winnipeg’s St. Vital area and surrounding communities. Here are just a few of the reasons why parents and students love St. Emile:
Pre-Kindergarten Through Grade 8
When you choose St. Emile, you know that your child has a place to learn and grow for years to come. We offer a full-time pre-K program, a full-day, every day (5 days a week) kindergarten program, and grades 1-8.
A Faith-Based Education
St. Emile School endeavours to create a welcoming and nurturing setting where children can deepen their faith with God and celebrate their belonging. This includes student prayer ministers, morning prayers, Christmas concerts, monthly masses, daily faith instruction and more.
A Challenging & Enriching Education
From buddy reading to student council, volunteer opportunities to middle school exams and high school prep, our students are engaged and challenged right from the start
A Lower Staff to Student Ratio
We have more Educational Assistants per capita than most educational institutions and have resources in place to meet the needs of children with extra needs. We are a tight knit community where you can expect your children to get the care they need and beyond.
Convenience for Parents
From our before and after school programs running from 7am-6pm to our convenient location on St. Anne’s Road, we do everything we can to make life a little easier for parents of St. Emile children.
Student Leadership Opportunities
Students are encouraged to develop leadership skills and responsibility through activities such as community service, student council, school lunch monitors, school safety patrols and UNESCO council
Extracurricular Programs & Real Life Experiences
Our sports program includes volleyball, basketball, badminton, running club, track and field, plus our Hockey Canada Skills Academy. All students take violin between the grades of 3-8, plus we have a great choir program and rock band as an option. We also have overnight trips starting in grade 5, including skiing, camping, and an out of province trip in grade 8.
The Only Catholic UNESCO School in Manitoba
We are the only Catholic school in the province with a UNESCO designation. This program helps our students develop a passion for human rights, environmental sustainability and social justice.
Emotional Literacy Through Roots of Empathy
Our trained Roots of Empathy instructors help children reflect on their own feelings and the feelings of others using a baby from the community as the focus. This program has proven effective in reducing levels of aggression and bullying among school children while raising social/emotional competence and increasing empathy
Our Approach to Faith
