The academic programs at Sakewew High School support the principles of the Saskatchewan Core Curriculum and the Saskatchewan Goals of Education from a culturally relevant perspective, using Aboriginal examples and experiences. Alternate programs, such as Cree language and Native studies, along with enriched activities in dance and art – and on-site childcare service – encourage and motivate students to stay in school and graduate.
