For the first time, the Town of Fox Creek will have a post-secondary institution within its community.
The Town has announced that Northern Lakes College will be opening a campus in Fox Creek, joining 50 other communities served by Northern Lakes College for the January 2021 semester.
The campus will be located at what Fox Creek residents previously called the Tourist Information Centre.
Fox Creek Mayor Jim Hailes says the Town is pleased to welcome the campus, as it will allow students to access post-secondary studies without having to leave the community.
“The availability of the College in town will allow our community members to thrive and our businesses to grow. We wish Northern Lakes great success in pursuing their mandate to serve Albertans.”
Northern Lakes College provides flexible and quality educational programs and services. NLC’s innovative Supported Distance Learning (SDL) and Supported Distance Teaching (SDT) models include unique online delivery options such as NLC LIVE OnlineTM and NLC Anytime, Anywhere. SDL provides learners with the flexibility to balance work, home, and education.
“Northern Lakes College is excited to partner with the Town of Fox Creek to offer access to post-secondary education in the community,” says Northern Lakes College President & CEO, Glenn Mitchell.
“Our model is to provide opportunities to students to engage in training and further education at home so that they do not have to leave their communities.”
