It’s a holistic approach to develop the mind, body and spirit.
St. Louis School
St. Louis School is a small school with a big heart. Provincially recognized by the Ministry of Education as a trailblazer for its kindergarten classrooms, it was the first school in the City of Kenora to have full-day kindergarten. New this year, St. Louis has an exciting new hockey skills development program, giving students a shot to skate and score – with a lot of fun mixed in. St. Louis also offers the “Empower” program, a new highly-targeted program unique to the school that helps students from JK to Grade 2 who are having trouble reading. Plus, there’s an emotional support dog on site, helping students process difficult feelings.
St. John School

From its strong partnership with the Red Lake Friendship Centre, encouraging cross-cultural understanding with the First Nations community, to its extra support for students, St. John has something for everyone. In 2015, St. John was one of only nine schools in Canada and of 24 globally to be recognized by the Franklin Covey Company, one of the world’s most prominent educational leadership programs. It’s a globally-recognized service model that develops outstanding graduates who help the Red Lake community thrive.
