About us

We are a community high school in Fort Chipewyan, Northern Alberta, Canada.

Fort Chipewyan is a fly-in community. We started this school to fulfill the needs of the community for a more flexible high school. 

  • Anyone aged 15 and older including adults can benefit from our programs.

  • Our programs are module-based and students can choose their own pace.

  • Students can be at the premises or at home or workplace.

  • We are funded by all the 3 first nation bands in the community:

    • Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation (ACFN)

    • Mikisew Cree First Nation (MCFN)

    • Fort Chipewyan Metis Association

  • Working together​ with all the above first nation bands allows us a lot of flexibility.
