With SD71 Navigate’s innovative, award-winning educational resources on your doorstep, why aren’t you here already?!  As a 7S student you will benefit from strong academics, small classes, blended, personalized learning and excellent post-secondary preparedness delivered in a highly supportive environment.

“7S made me feel like I could be myself right away. I had an amazing time and can honestly say last winter was the most fun I’ve had in my whole life,” says 2019 Grad Anika Aschbacher who attended 7S from the Yukon to ski race with the Red Mountain Academy.

Seven Summits Centre for Learning, administered by the Visions for Small Schools Society (VSS), opened in Fall 2013, creating a new innovative option for education for grade 8–12 students from Rossland and beyond. We partner with RED MOUNTAIN ACADEMY,  BLACK JACK SKI CLUB and KOOTENAY DANCEWORKS so that athletes in sport-intensive and/or international programs can benefit from our flexible learning model.

You should never have to compromise on your academic studies in order to pursue your dreams  

With Rossland’s rich community of skills and interests, learners at Seven Summits have access to a great variety of programs, activities and local assets. You will love the self-directed, independent style of education which enables you to work ahead or dive deeper into subjects that interest you.. We facilitate this on-site with a unique blend of face-to-face teacher time and supervised access to a full range of courses which are delivered in pioneering, virtual, online classrooms.
