Choosing a new home means more than just finding a floor plan that’s a fit for your family. It’s about finding a community that feels like home, too. And with so many amenities nearby (like schools), Desrochers Villages definitely feels like the perfect place to call home in south west Edmonton.
Desrochers Villages is so fortunate to have schooling options right in the neighbourhood! Here’s an overview of all you need to know.
Catholic K-9 School
St. Thomas Aquinas opened its doors for the first time in September 2017. With pre-kindergarten program 100 Voices, YMCA child care, and innovative building elements, it’s easy to see why residents were excited about this addition to the Heritage Valley community.

Catholic High School
135th Street and 32nd Avenue
In November 2019, the Government of Alberta approved the design of a brand new Catholic high school in the Desrochers neighbourhood. It is set to accommodate approximately 1,300 students and has a budget of $55 million. Awesome! Read more about the Catholic high school.
Public High School
Construction on Dr. Anne Anderson High School is underway, with an opening date to be announced. Take a drive by the site and you’ll see its impressive design taking shape. Featuring shared community spaces, this new school will be an amenity to Desrochers in more ways than one. Read more about Dr. Anne Anderson High School.
Another new school build is underway very close to Desrochers Villages. Garth Worthington will be a public K-9 school in East Chapelle, and is slated to open in September 2021. While Edmonton Public Schools will not confirm attendance boundaries until closer to the school’s opening, it’s very promising that Desrochers Villages will be included in the catchment area.
