Strathmore Community Overview

Strathmore is a town located along the Trans-Canada Highway in southern Alberta, Canada, 40 kilometres (25 mi) east of the city of Calgary, within the boundaries of Wheatland County.

The town began as a hamlet for the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) lines that were built in the area in 1883. In 1905, the CPR moved the hamlet of Strathmore four miles north to its current location. A track laying record was made between Strathmore and Cheadle when the railroad was built. In one hour one mile (1.6 km) of steel was laid and, at the end of the ten-hour working day, the rails were laid to Cheadle, 9 miles (15 km) for a record. Efforts by the Canadian government to develop western Canada led to increases in Strathmore's population and its importance as a rail supply stop. The CPR railroad tracks are now gone, the land having been subdivided.

Today, the town is an important agricultural community. Oil and gas exploration is also a growing interest in the area. It is the headquarters of the Golden Hills School Division. Many commute daily from Strathmore to Calgary. Over the past three years the town has seen a major growth in commercial development.

Strathmore is part of the Goldenhills School Division.

Strathmore has three elementary schools (Wheatland, Westmount, and Brentwood), one junior high school (Crowther Memorial Junior High School), one high school (Strathmore High School) and a Catholic School that runs from K-6 (Sacred Heart Academy) as well as a 7-12 Catholic school (Holy Cross Collegiate).

In September 2008 Strathmore's newest school, Trinity Lutheran Christian Academy, opened at the former Covenant Bible College property. The school Christian school with grades K through 9 and is publicly funded.

Strathmore was the home of Covenant Bible College Canada. The CBC-C campus relocated in 1995 from its prior home in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. In Covenant Bible College, students took a course in religious studies. It was closed in 2007 due to dropping student enrollment, and other fiscal problems. The former CBC campus was sold for $5.5 million. It was sold to another Christian organization EnCharis.
