ENHANCING CLASSROOM LEARNING AND A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE
At North Point School we believe that physical education, fitness, and wellness are at the core foundation of student development. We offer a multitude of competitive and non-competitive programming options to ensure our students are encouraged to live active and healthy lifestyles.
WHY ARE WE BRINGING BOYS & GIRLS TOGETHER IN HIGH SCHOOL
- High school students are more independent in their learning.
- The academic and social differences between boys and girls becomes less of an issue in the classroom at this stage in their development.
- A co-ed high School will create a more robust social environment at North Point as students prepare for the next steps in their education.
Physical Education Programming
We utilize the state-of-the-art facilities at Mount Royal College for our Physical Education classes. We offer PE-10 for all Grade 10 students and PE-20 and PE-30 for those who wish to further continue their Phys. Ed programming.
Our expanded physical-education program recognizes the importance of physical fitness and a multi-sport mindset. Increased physical activity enhances classroom learning and a healthy lifestyle.

North Point competes within the Calgary Independent School Athletic Association (CISAA) offering competitive teams for cross country running, golf, volleyball, basketball, floor hockey, badminton, and track and field. These competitive teams are open to students in Grade 7 and up and participation in school athletic teams is highly encouraged as we enjoy having so many diverse student-athletes within our student body.

Promoting connection and responsible use of technology
We also offer structured eSports programming for our High School students, to provide an opportunity to compete across North America in a variety of online games. Esports requires teamwork, communication, critical and strategic thinking, creativity, sportsmanship, and leadership — much like traditional sports. Players compete from their respective campus, supervised by North Point teachers, with special consideration for nutrition, health and character. Esports can increase self-motivation, boost self-confidence and lead to better mental health and overall happiness.
