Our Mission

Cornwall Alternative School has been part of the Regina education landscape for almost 50 years. Our mission is to help Regina students between Grades 7 and 10 get their education path back on track.

Our Location

We are located in East Regina, which often has our students participate in outings and learning extension activities such as sage and berry picking, camping trips, and traditional storytelling.

Our Students

Cornwall referrals are from local school boards and must meet the criteria of extreme challenges in attendance, behavior, and academic success. We are for those who have experienced difficulty in a mainstream education setting and provide the opportunity to obtain an education in a holistic and supportive environment.

Learn More About Our Students

Last year, we served 78 at-risk students in total.

87% of students were successful in our programming.

What We Do

Staff collaboration and co-construction are essential in the individualized program plan to achieve student success and start with meeting the students where they are at.

Our team supports the navigation of daunting mental health and learning hurdles. Doing so reduces students’ risk for dropout and justice involvement is reduced, and their likelihood of attending a post-secondary school or finding full-time employment increases dramatically.

We blend mental health support and Indigenous education with the Saskatchewan Curriculum Outcomes, including a credit-based Grade 10 program. Our program has had outstanding success over the years, and we look forward to working with our next generations of students.

“Cornwall Alternative School has been a wonderful safe place since the first day of school to the last. Everyday at Cornwall has been fun, different, and everyone here is like family by now. We are treated with respect and given an enjoyable and safe environment for all. Cornwall is also able to make time for each individual student and all their needs and issues.”
