Welcome to Building Futures 2019/20!

Join Rocky View Schools (RVS) and McKee Homes as they kick off this year’s Building Futures program in Airdrie, Oct. 18, 2019!

Taking Learning Beyond the Classroom Walls

Building Futures is an immersive and unique program where high school students in Airdrie and Cochrane learn how to build a house from the ground up. Through the generous support of homebuilders McKee Homes and Kingsmith Homes, students complete their Gr. 10 curriculum at the building site, while gaining exposure to new career paths and expanding their problem-solving skills. The program allows for individualized instruction in an environment where students can pursue their passions and connect to their community.

Airdrie's Building Futures site will celebrate the 2019/20 kick off, Oct. 18, 2019, at 67 Coopersfield Park SW, Airdrie. Guests will be welcomed at 11 a.m. and the festivities will include speeches by representatives from RVS, McKee Homes and government officials. The celebration will wrap up with a wall-raising ceremony and student-led tours of the construction site. Everyone is welcome to join in and celebrate the continued success of this program.

Building Their Future

Building Futures encourages student learning through inquiry-based, real-world scenarios. Students interested in applying for the program are asked to contact the guidance counsellor at their school.
