Sunterra Heights Real Estate & Community Guide

Catch the sun in one of the newest communities in Cochrane! Located north of the 1A, just west of the Cowboy Trail, Sunterra Heights is a neighbourhood to grow with. Cochrane is one of the fastest-growing communities in Canada, but it still maintains its quaint, western-themed identity, as well as a gathering place for adventure activities. Walk downtown for the perfect ice cream cone, or visit the Cochrane Ranche Historic Site and explore history. Cochrane recently launched its Cochrane On-Demand Local Transit (COLT) system to provide public transportation to make the town even more accessible to its residents.

So Much to Love in Sunterra Heights

As the Sunterra Heights community establishes its firm roots in Cochrane, you can explore all it has to offer. The Cochrane Arena is a stone throw’s away from where you and your family can enjoy recreation, before and after school care, and even a program room for community use.

There are three schools close by elementary, middle, and high school which means your family’s educational needs can be well-supported throughout the years. The schools in Cochrane are part of the Rocky View School Division as well as the Calgary Catholic School District. There is also a home school network, Cochrane Home Educators. There are eight elementary schools, one middle school, and three high schools. There are French immersion and francophone programs that begin in elementary and continue into high school.
