Opaskwayak Education Authority Inc, manages 2 schools as of April 18, 2011 Joe A. Ross School and Oscar Lathlin Collegiate.
Joe. A. Ross School (JARS)& Oscar Lathlin Collegiate display an architectural approach to an Aboriginal concept and design. JARS is in its eighteenth (18) year of operation. Oscar Lathlin Collegiate is a newer project and will open April 18, 2011. We continue to enrol nearly 1,000 students from Kindergarten to Senior 4 (Grade 12).
We employ a staff of approximately one hundred fifty who serve the Opaskwayak Cree Nation and the Swampy Cree Tribal Council communities (Band sponsored Senior Years students).

Through an English academic program, graduates from Oscar Lathlin Collegiate prepare to enter university or community college. We deliver a Co-operative Education Program that enables some to go directly into the world of work once they graduate. We also provide cultural education through language programming and outdoor/northern ecology education from K-12.

This year we have many additional programs to support students and staff: Virtues Character Building Program, GO Program Goal setting and Life Skills Program, Bridges Programs- Internet and computer based career interest and information planning, Computerized Cree Language programs, Reading and Math Recovery Programs, as well as SuccessMaker Basic Skills Development Lab for Kindergarten to Grade 9.

Joe A. School and Oscar Lathlin Collegiate also continue to offer a wide variety of co-curricular activities to appeal to most students. Music, intramural and competitive team sports, clubs, student council, social activities and field trips are an important part of the school and involve a large number of students and staff.

Our goals are clear: to use available space, resources, and teaching and learning strategies to develop the best possible education system for the youth of Opaskwayak.
