Description:
The Red Crow Community College offers the Adult Upgrading Program in Standoff and Lethbridge. R.C.C.C. provides cultural and educational courses that assist students and the community in achieving their personal / cultural / academic goals. Our traditional teachings are based on Kainaissinni. Our Elders play a significant role within our college; they are involved in curriculum development, professional development, and delivery of lessons with the students. The learning is more meaningful since the Elders are in the classroom; the traditional knowledge is accurate. Adult learners receive credit through Alberta Education. Our Adult Upgrading Program is designed to implement meaningful educational opportunities for all learners, which creates a successful educational journey, a bridge to Niitsitapi Arts & Sciences courses, and other Post-Secondary institutions. Incorporating our culture in the classroom strengthens our Niitsitapi identity.
