Welcome to Cultus Lake Community School

Cultus Lake Community School is a “family-friendly” learning place that is situated only 8 minutes from Vedder Crossing.  Our unique picturesque provincial park setting and our lake view property enrolls about 200 students in 9 divisions.  

Outdoor Place Based Learning Programs

Outdoor place based learning is a key focus and teaching philosophy in our school. Place-based education promotes learning that is local and considers the unique history, environment and culture of Cultus Lake. It recognizes and uses students’ own “place” or immediate schoolyard, neighbourhood, town or community.

Outdoor  and community locations in the local communities of Cultus Lake, Soowhalie and Columbia Valley are used to  provide students with a “hands-on, first hand experience” in learning their curriculum. For more information on our outdoor programs check out the following pages on our website
