We are all God's masterpiece.
École Père Kenneth Kearns Catholic School (ÉPK) resides within the family of Elk Island Catholic Schools (EICS) and is part of Alberta's publicly-funded education system.
ÉPK celebrates its uniqueness as the only Kindergarten to Grade 4 Catholic French Immersion school in Sherwood Park, providing 21st century, quality Catholic education to students. Parents, staff and students work collaboratively, with Christ as our guide, to ensure the success of each student.
Our efforts are focused on the individual needs of each learner. We foster language learning in a faith-filled environment where students can lead a spiritually rich life. Students are encouraged to live out their faith through their words, actions, and interactions.
