After years of searching for a permanent home, North Point Schools is thrilled to announce the acquisition of 74 acres on the west edge of Calgary in Springbank. This spectacular piece of property boasts forest, creeks, stunning views and open spaces on which to build our future school facilities.
CALGARY, March 17, 2023 – We are very pleased to announce that we have successfully acquired an incredible piece of land for the future site of North Point Schools. Formerly known as the ‘Whitaker Lands’, these stunning 74 acres include 24 acres of forest, creeks and a small portion of the Elbow River.
The land is located in Springbank where 101st meets highway 8. It is just off of Stoney Trail (once completed) so it should be easy commuting for most, once the day comes.
Our Founder & Board Chair, Kim Pirie, has been working tirelessly since the North Point journey began back in 2014 to find the perfect long term location to support North Point’s educational model.
“This property is ideal for us to realize our dream of a campus that can accommodate not only a state of the art school facility but also greenhouses and gardens, extensive athletic facilities, an outdoor education centre and an art studio, all to support many of the key elements of our program.“Kim Pirie, Founder
While the planning has begun, we are still a ways from shovels in the ground. For the time being, North Point Schools will continue to operate out of both the Richmond and Currie campuses. We have secure leases in place and a plan to manage our growth in the years to come. In the meantime, this property gives us a place to explore, hike, run and learn.
“Anyone who has been a part of creating and growing schools understands that it’s the people – teachers, parents, students and staff, who make the difference. However, when incredible people meet incredible opportunities the result is off the charts with what can be imagined”.Brent Devost, Head of School
We look forward to working closely with our staff, students, parents and community members as we strive to realize this dream.
