Yellowhead Tribal College is an inclusive and open learning institution in Treaty 6 territory. We provide accredited programs in a flexible, supportive academic environment that nurtures Indigenous cultures and traditions.
The college was established in 1986 by Yellowhead Tribal Council to meet the educational needs of its member nations (Alexander First Nation, Alexis Nakota Sioux Nation, O'Chiese First Nation, and Sunchild First Nation). We now offer academic upgrading, certificates, diplomas, and post-secondary courses and degrees to all adult learners.

Yellowhead Tribal College provides students with educational opportunities that respond immediately to community needs to help lay the foundation for its graduates to participate fully in 21st-century Canadian society.
We are committed to life-long learning. Whatever your age or the stage of your learning, we can assist in providing the skills and credentials needed to achieve your career goals.
Yellowhead Tribal College is a proud community partner delivering upgrading programs as well as accredited post-secondary courses, certificates, diplomas, and degrees. All our programs are supported by and foster First Nations culture and language.
Students need support not only with education but also with culture, health and wellness, relationships, and family. Student Services ensures students are supported in these areas so they can focus on learning.
