Black Gold School Division


About Black Gold

Since 1995, the Black Gold School Division (BGSD) has been providing quality education within safe, caring, and welcoming environments in the communities of Beaumont, Calmar, Devon, Leduc, Leduc County, New Sarepta, Thorsby and Warburg.

Approximately 12,894 students from Early Childhood Services (ECS) to Grade 12 are educated in the 31 schools within our system. Approximately 764 teachers deliver instruction with assistance from 542 support staff.

An extensive range of programs, including French Immersion, Christian, Off Campus Education, Dual Credit, extensive Career and Technology Studies (CTS) and Career and Technology Foundation courses (CTF), Registered Apprenticeship Programs, and more are offered to students in inclusive learning environments.

Our students have access to a continuum of classroom supports and services, including specialized learning environments, early intervention and counselling services, and consultative services such as speech-language, hearing, vision, occupational therapy and physical therapy.

BGSD also provides many extracurricular opportunities in all its schools – music, drama, special-interests clubs, athletics, active citizenship, and much more! Collectively, these offer an educational experience that supports the development of the skills and knowledge our students need to succeed as they move beyond our school system into post-secondary education, or into the workforce.
