Welcome to RS Fowler!

Welcome to R.S. Fowler Catholic Junior High School!  We would like to take this opportunity to share with you the many initiatives that make RS Fowler a school of choice in the city of St. Albert.  At RSF, students receive outstanding academic instruction, may access a wealth of athletic opportunities and use technology as a meaningful and engaging learning tool.  As a learning community, we work with students and parents to ensure that students achieve success.  Programming at RSF is organized to enable students to achieve the best they can academically, socially, physically and spiritually.

RSF offers a variety of option course options that allow students to both discover and develop their gifts and talents. Our option course offerings range from Fine Arts based courses, such as Ceramics, Drama and Band, athletic based pursuits such as Dance, Outdoor Education and Fit for Life, as well as classes designed to meet specific student interest such as Robotics and Enterprise and Innovation (business), to name a few!  We encourage our students to be fully engaged in our student life through participation in Student Council, Chess Club, our annual musical theatre production and intramurals and other clubs! We wish you every success in achieving your goals and look forward to journeying with you during this exciting time of your life!
