SCcyber E-Learning Institute

July 30, 2021

Red Deer Advocate – SCcyber E-Learning Institute will open this September at the local Native Friendship Centre in Rocky Mountain House, Alberta. The school will provide online high school courses for the growing population of Indigenous youth from Sunchild and O’Chiese First Nations, about 50 kilometres away, when it opens in September.
The school is an urban-based sister organization to SCcyber E-learning Community, provider of online education courses to Indigenous students from more than 25 First Nations.
“It is well known that Indigenous students often struggle in traditional school settings,” says Kamieniecki, “yet there were very limited options specifically designed to meet the needs of these marginalized urban students until this model arrived.”
SCcbyer E-learning Community was Canada’s first online school for Indigenous learners, founded in 2000.
