Black Gold School Division is building a new 1,121 student Grade 10-12 high school at the intersection of 69 Street and 50 Avenue in south-west Leduc. The project is expected to break ground in early May 2022.

The bright and airy 1,121 student school will feature new and increased programming options for Leduc-area students. It will feature an industrial/commercial kitchen for a culinary arts program, dedicated spaces for robotics, 3D printing and design/merchandising, video broadcasting and production, and horticultural/agricultural studies. There will be an art kiln for the ceramics program, an outdoor classroom, and there are plans in place to expand the school and gymnasium to a future capacity of 1,600 students.

As per our Administrative Policy 541: Naming of Facilities, where possible, new facilities will be assigned names before construction begins, so we need your help to name this new school!

A School Naming Committee has been set up to receive nominations from the public for the school name from January 10 until February 10, 2022. The Committee will then narrow down the submissions to a shortlist of names to recommend to the Board of Trustees. The Board will announce the name on March 13, 2022, and the winning submission will receive a Black Gold Prize Pack!

As per AP 541, we’re looking for names that:

  • Have significance for the students, parents and the community of the particular facility
  • Be easily identifiable with the facility
  • Not be in conflict with the names of other facilities in the Division or surrounding districts
  • Have historical and/or cultural significance (e.g. Indigenous/First Nations, local/regional history, etc.)
  • Be appropriate in terms of copyright and trademark provisions
