Kisikeyihtamowin - Our MCJH Foundations Program

The Maskwacîs Education Schools Commission values of Îyinîw Mâmitonehicikan, Nehiyaw Pimâtisiwin, Nehiyawewin, and Wâhkôhtowin are foundational to the  Kisikeyihtamowin program. 

This grade 7-12 program is designed to provide rich Nehiyaw Pimâtisiwin experiences and optimum educational opportunities to support and meet the additional identified needs of Oskâyak.  

Oskâyak will engage in Nehiyawâtisiwin, Nehiyawewin, and Okapewes opportunities, including functional literacy and numeracy, work experience/readiness, self-advocacy, and other life skills with an emphasis on real-life situations and hands-on learning experiences. Integration into inclusive programming with same-aged peers is encouraged and is based on each Oskâyak strengths and interests.
