About Our School
Mount Royal Collegiate is a comprehensive secondary school located on the corner of Rusholme Road and Avenue W in Saskatoon. We are proud of our strong academics, variety of elective course offerings and extracurricular opportunities for students. Mount Royal opened in 1960, and seven years later added comprehensive practical and applied arts shops and labs (e.g., commercial cooking, home economics, wood construction, welding, mechanics, machining, electronics). The school further expanded in 2004 with a cosmetology lab and renovated graphic arts studio.

Mount Royal provides a home base for the Saskatoon Trades and Skills Centre, which offers quick skills courses to young adults looking to transition to the world of work. Additionally, we partner with post-secondary institutions, including Saskatchewan Polytechnic (Saskatoon's Kelsey Campus), Saskatchewan Indian Institute of Technologies, and Dumont Technical Institute to offer academic programming in the north wing of our facility.

Mount Royal Collegiate is known for its caring and committed staff. Students who join our Mount Royal family can expect to receive support from our staff, a group of dedicated individuals who regularly go above and beyond to help students achieve success. At Mount Royal, our diversity is our strength! We are proud to have First Nation, Inuit and Métis students comprise a significant portion of our student population. In addition, Mount Royal is home to a flourishing English as an Additional Language (EAL) program for students from around the world. During the school year, Mount Royal hosts several culturally responsive events, including our Multicultural Day and annual Powwow.

Mount Royal offers a number of unique high school programs and classes. In addition to our many hands-on electives, we are home to the High School Carpentry Apprenticeship Program (HCAP). This one-semester program provides students with five credits, up to 400 apprenticeship hours and a life-changing experience. In HCAP, students work with our partners to build a house or cabin for a home buyer.

Mount Royal Collegiate provides a world of opportunity for students. Considering Mount Royal's wide variety of dynamic course offerings, its facility advantage and its exciting array of extracurricular teams and clubs, there really is something here for everyone!
