Bilingual Ukrainian Catholic Parents Society (BUCPS)


Bilingual Ukrainian Catholic Parents Society (BUCPS)

Bitaemo! Sherwood Park's Ukrainian Bilingual Program began in 1980 and has seen decades of success in academic achievement, global learning, and celebration of the rich Ukrainian heritage. Students flourish in an academically challenging and supportive environment with excellent teachers, dedicated support staff and a committed parent organization.

The Ukrainian Bilingual Program curriculum follows the Alberta Program of Studies for Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Fine Arts, Physical Education, Health and Religious Studies. The Ukrainian Language Arts course is the primary vehicle of language instruction, and students are encouraged to use Ukrainian in other subject areas as well. Technology and computer skills are integrated in to the curriculum, as are Ukrainian cultural programs.

Students who have progressed through the program have developed life-long friendships and valuable global learning skills associated with second language study. From diversified thinking to effective communications skills in both English and Ukrainian, confidence to cultural appreciation, the program offers students a distinct advantage when entering postsecondary studies and pursuing future careers.

From Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 12, the Ukrainian Bilingual Program offers a community-minded cultural environment along with an enhanced academic curriculum. Open the door to your child's us today!
