"Let us grow together into Christ"
God of wisdom and might,
we praise you for the wonder of our being,
for mind, body and spirit.
Be with our children as they begin
a new school year.
Bless them and their teachers and staff.
Give the strength and grace as their bodies grow;
wisdom and knowledge to their minds
as they search for understanding;
and peace and zeal to their hearts.
We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord.
We are currently experiencing technical difficulty with our school fee payment program. Your patience is appreciated. Please check back for updates.

Transportation for MWI Kindergarten Students
Transportation for students in all MWI Kindergarten programs is available at no cost through Transportation Services. If you have not already done so, please click on the link "Yellow Bus Application and Information" on the bottom right of our homepage. Please print, complete, and return this application prior to June 19, 2015 to ensure bus service at the start of the school year. Delaying this process will result in a delay in service and alternate arrangements for your child will be needed.
Please note: bus drivers will return a student to the school if there is no designated adult available to greet them at stops during scheduled drop-off times.
Kindergarten Staggered Entry - 2015-2016
Parents of Kindergarten students in the AJM program, please ensure you have called the office at 780-471-4218 to book your date and time for your child's entry date.
Parents of Kindergarten students in the MWI Program (Regular and French Immersion) hosted at AJM School, teachers will be doing their home visits (dates to be determined), at which time staggered entry dates and times will be scheduled. At that time, MWI teachers will explain their program and advise of supplies needed for the year.
Is your family going on vacation during the school year? Please phone the school office to let us know when and for how long. This helps us maintain accurate attendance records. Junior High students are reminded to complete their vacation form before leaving on holidays.

Welcome to Archbishop Joseph MacNeil Catholic School
AJM is a Catholic elementary/junior high school southwest Edmonton, Alberta. Our school opened in September, 2003 and has experienced tremendous growth since then. Currently, we have six hundred students in kindergarten to grade eight.
Our motto, “Let us grow together into Christ” reflects the mood and tone of the students, parents, and the staff of our school. AJM students continue to excel in academics, athletics, the arts, and their spiritual growth.
We hope that our website will inform you and help you to learn more about our school community.
