Through cree values, language and culture each student discovers their unique strengths, to walk their own path.

Opaskwayak Education Branch is responsible for the delivery of educational programs from Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 12 to members of Opaskwayak Cree Nation.

Elementary students attend Joe A. Ross School, while Junior and Senior High School students attend the Oscar Lathlin Collegiate. Both are located in Opaskwayak. We also support post-secondary students at various Colleges, and Universities throughout Canada and the United States.
