Proposed High School for White City and Emerald Park

A high school in our community has been a significant priority of White City Town Council for many years. It has long been the Town’s position that a high school is essential to service our local population. 

At the time of the 2021 Census, 27.6% of White City’s population was 14 and under. Of those, approximately 380 residents are between 10 and 14 and will be moving to high school over the next four years. These numbers do not consider the significant growth projected for the region, nor the population of Emerald Park and the surrounding areas of the RM of Edenwold.

As part of long-term community planning, the Town has worked with developers to identify a 27.64 acre parcel of land for the future development of a high school and multi-use recreation centre.  

Additionally the Town continues to meet with the Ministry of Education and have regular communication with Prairie Valley School Division to keep them apprised of ongoing planning. On Monday January 23, 2023, Prairie Valley School Division announced the construction of a high school in the White City/Emerald Park area as its top priority.

Our February 2023 Councillor Blog was dedicated to a high school located in White City and asked residents to send letters to the Minister of Education showing their support.
