Strathcona is an inviting learning community where passion for education fills the classrooms, the hallways and the gyms. Strathcona Lords are guided by a strong tradition, a desire to produce their best possible work and are urged to participate in sports and cultural activities outside the classroom. Students at Strathcona enrich their lives by engaging with the wider community through partnerships with many organizations such as the University, colleges and the University of Alberta Hospital.
During our 111 years of history thousands of students, staff, and parents have been associated with the Strathcona educational community. Through the interactions of all of these individuals and the supporting community the identity of Strathcona was forged. Today, Strathcona continues to build on its proud tradition. Our students continue to excel at academics, athletics, and fine arts. But most importantly our students continue to learn what it means to serve the larger community. Our motto is "Ut Qui Ministrat" (As One Who Serves). In deed our alumni can be found in positions of leadership and service all over the world.
Serving is at the heart of being a Strathcona Lord so being a contributing member of a larger community is vital to Strathcona.
