*** Note for Nala’atsi students, parents, & caretakers: as you are likely aware, in-class school has been suspended indefinitely for all schools in BC due to the Coronavirus. Nala’atsi staff will be working to support every student as best we can while in-class school is suspended. We will be sharing information, including an updated weekly schedule, soon. For now, please be patient, try not to stress too much about all the uncertainty we are facing, and stay safe & healthy!

Nala’atsi is a school based in Courtenay, British Columbia for students with Indigenous ancestry in grades 10 to 12. It is a 10 month program that provides individualized support for students whose needs have not been met in a mainstream classroom setting. The Nala’atsi program aims to give students a sense of community and belonging, a safe and compassionate learning environment, as well as access to a variety of exciting cultural activities within the community and beyond.
