KiHS Gearing up for 2006/2007 School Year!

On September 5th KiHS will be starting its sixth year of operation. Many changes have occurred over the past 6 years to ensure that the program is meeting the needs of the students being served. This year, there are new courses being added to give students more options to complete their Ontario diploma requirement. KiHS wants to give every opportunity to students in the north to continue towards success in their educational experience.

Online secondary education is taking off all across North America and KiHS has been a leader in developing a model which is working for students in our First Nation communities. KiHS is an online program which allows students to earn valuable secondary credits while remaining in their home community. Many feel this is very important in that it allows for direct community, parental, and cultural involvement at a natural and needed level. Students are earning valuable skills and adding to the rich technical base in their communities and in doing so getting closer to a high school diploma.

KiHS is starting this year in the community of Saugeen First Nation. Students there will now have access to high school programing in their community. Congratulations Saugeen joining the KiHS program.

If you would like any additional information regarding KiHS, please contact me at the administration office in Balmertown (at 1-800-387-3740 ext 1302). KiHS may be just the place you need to help you find a way to complete your credits for your Ontario Secondary School Diploma.

Please continue to check out our website at and option sheet for this school year and if there are courses which could work for you, make sure you call for more information.
