Nutana Collegiate is a unique community high school in the heart of Saskatoon where students, staff and community partners work together to create a place for learning in a variety of innovative ways. Students are supported to achieve success. Students take courses in a quarter system format (two classes per day for ten weeks with four intake times per year) that leads to focused learning and meaningful relationships between students and staff. Students feel like they belong when they're at Nutana! Classes at Nutana are full mornings 9:30-11:55 a.m. and afternoons 12:55-3:15 p.m. All our classes are instructed in a classroom setting and students are expected to be present.
Our student population is diverse, drawn to the school for many reasons from all areas of Saskatoon. While we offer the full range of regular, academic Grade 10 to 12 classes, the majority of our students are at the senior level upgrading their marks in a few courses, completing prerequisites for specific post-secondary programs, or returning to school to meet final graduation requirements. Students tell us that they enjoy Nutana's mature setting -- one that allows them to meet their academic goals. Our graduates go on to university, technical and business schools, and to the world of work.
At Nutana we offer four particular opportunities for students as well as regular programs. The particular opportunities are:
- Academic Upgrading programming for mature students ages 18 to 21
- Career and Experiential Learning provides unique supports and programs so students can explore career areas and develop skills; this prepares youth to be competitive in today's world
- Community Engagement - the school has many service agency and business partners that provide opportunities which are linked to community resources and programs
- Tourism courses (and opportunities) to develop skills needed for post-secondary education, for life-long learning and for work in the travel and tourism industry; Nutana is the only Saskatchewan Canadian Academy of Travel and Tourism Gold School.
Many on-site student services that are typically not available at other collegiates are available at Nutana. A few examples are: a full-time nurse practitioner, a part-time Social Services worker, a daycare, a student parent support centre, a youth leadership and skill development office, a community developer, a daily breakfast program and a Stay in School worker. Our Integrated School Linked staff ensures that students receive the services and supports they need to stay in school.
