Our Blessed Mother's Birthday

We celebrate our Mother Mary's birthday on September 22. Mother Mary is Clear Water Academy's Patroness.
Happy 22nd Birthday, CWA!

Look how much we've grown! Clear Water Academy started out with 25 students and 4 staff members in an office building in downtown Calgary. We have grown to nearly 430 students and over 80 staff members housed in four buildings located on seven acres - WOW! God sure loves our school to make it bloom in such a special way over the last 22 years. Happy birthday and here is to many more years of forming Christian leaders!
