amiskwaciy Academy offers exciting programming in a respectful, safe environment for Grades 7 to 12. We take a communal approach to learning, with our Elders, community partners, families and committed teaching staff providing a holistic learning environment.
Our students come from across Edmonton and surrounding areas as well as from First Nations communities and Métis settlements throughout Western Canada and the Northwest Territories. Most are First Nations, Métis or Inuit, but we welcome students of all cultures. We teach the Medicine Wheel and, in addition to our academic programming, offer CTS programs such as Cosmetology, Construction Technology, and Foods and Fashion Studies. Through our community partnerships we provide hot breakfast and lunch programs, family support and the University of Alberta Community Service-Learning program.
amiskwaciy (amiskwacîy) means “beaver hill” in Cree.
