Please read the parent testimonials regarding the Edge program in Grande Prairie. The passion these parents show for the program is why we are having the Edge as a partner with us in developing our student athletes in hockey and dance.
“We initially enrolled our son in Edge School North to take advantage of the increased ice-time and instruction to help him develop his goaltender skills. We quickly learned that Edge was as much about developing the individual academically as it was about developing them athletically. Edge teaches the importance of developing the student athletes mind and body. As parents it is wonderful to see the excitement & spark the Edge Program has given our son towards learning!
“The Edge program is more than just an outstanding hockey skills development program. It uses the kids passion for hockey as a vehicle for personal development. The emphasis is academics, sportsmanship, team work, and leadership development.”
“The Edge school skill academy north(ESSAN) truly has ‘harnessed’ and bridged the gap for our son by combining his passion for hockey with academics. The school has had a tremendous positive impact on our son’s outlook towards achieving success as a student athlete. The program has surpassed our expectations in large part due to the director and his professional staff at ESSAN. They really do care about every child’s success in academics and athletics.”
“We have watched our son’s academic determination increase along with his marks. He is accountable for his actions not only at home, to the Edge and its Administrator, and also to the other student-athletes and peers at school. The Edge program takes a keen interest in our son – they want him to succeed and it shows. He is in a positive learning environment amongst his peers and teammates, where the “bar” is set higher, and student-athletes are challenged to reach their potential on and off the ice.
We are enjoying watch our son thrive through the Edge program and are convinced that the “Edge Way” is helping to shape him into the young man that he is destined to be.”
“Thank you to the Edge School for allowing us as parents to give our children a unique opportunity. Not only are they given hockey skills to develop them as a player but life skills to develop as a person. The staff at the Edge are by far the best mentors my children could ask for. I am more than pleased with the program and honoured my children are a part of it.”
OUR YEAR AT THE EDGE….
“Our son has always loved school but this year the Edge Academy has been an exceptional year for him. The Edge has exceeded our expectations. Our son thrives in an athletic environment and has a true passion for hockey. We saw this program as the perfect opportunity to combine a high standard of academics and our sons love of sport.
The Edge program offers and inspires so much more than athletics. As parents we work so hard to instill morals and values in our son and it is exciting to have a program that expands on what we embrace as a family.
The Edge creates a positive environment and has a virtues based teaching which focuses on character building, leadership, work ethic, respect, self discipline, healthy living and striving for excellence in all areas of life.
We look forward to many more years with the Edge, watching our Son thrive in all aspects of his life while making lasting lifetime friendships along the way!”
“My daughter dances at the Edge in the intermediate program and she truly loves all that the program has offered her to date. She has such a passion for dance and the Edge program has allowed her to explore that passion and grow not just as dancer but as an artist. The faculty at the Edge in Grande Prairie has been a pleasure to work with, she has learned so much about both dance and leadership and we are both truly grateful for the opportunities the Edge has to offer her not only as a dancer but as a well rounded, responsible individual.”
“The principles and foundation that the EDGE program has brought to Alexander Forbes has given our boy a level of confidence, leadership and academic ability far beyond our expectations. The changes we have seen in him confirm that we made the right decision in enrolling him in the EDGE program”
