ʔaq̓amnik’ School

ʔaq̓amnik School offers a unique and rich learning experience for students of all cultural backgrounds that won’t be found anywhere else.

 ʔaq̓amnik is a small accredited independent elementary school that takes pride in offering standard BC curriculum with an added cultural program that you won’t find anywhere else.  We host BC Certified teachers and support staff and a licensed after school program which provides continuity of services for our students, and peace of mind for our parents.  Because of small class sizes we are able to provide personalized education that is tailored to each student’s needs.  Our extracurricular activities include a running club, swimming program, and regular visits to local gyms for regular physical activity.  We also have a cultural program where all student  learn the Ktunaxa language  and participate in traditional cultural activities.

Besides being a great place to come to school we also offer some practical benefits for students and parents which sets our school apart from all the other schools.  Although we are an Independent school, there are no tuition fees, so parents don’t have to worry about extra costs for school.  We also provide a number of school supplies, breakfast and snack programs that are open to all students, and a standard 5 day school week.  Last but not least we offer bus transportation to and from school.  

In 2012 we opened our brand new education center, and the same year we celebrated 25 yrs of providing quality education.  Our new center is a two story building with wheelchair access that includes several classrooms, office space, a meeting room and cafeteria.  We can accommodate up to 100 students from Kindergarten to Grade 6.  We have an excellent outdoor play space which includes an outdoor classroom, and a new playground.  We are also currently in the midst of building a new school gymnasium which should be opened by the 2017 fall school year.

ʔaq̓amnik is open to students of any culture and ancestry, and our facility is designed to meet the evolving needs of our students and families so that we can provide an enhanced educational experience in a modern and functional learning environment.
