The Way Forward
Selkirk College’s goal has always been to make everyone feel at home in its classrooms and communities, alongside numerous innovative and unique learning opportunities since 1966.
For this celebrated community college strategically located in six various West Kootenay and Boundary communities, its offerings are never less than in-demand employment, credit transfer to a multitude of universities for degree completion, and comprehensive training to further students’ career objectives.
Today, its students come from 34 different countries, enjoying affordable tuition and cost of living as well as a 15:1 student to faculty ratio for focused mentoring.
Its mountain environment, too, is positioned as a glorious haven for students rather than a barrier to one’s study-abroad goals due to its remoteness. Students can soak up the famous Kootenay Vibe, visit a farmer’s market or spectacular trails, paddle the local waterways, or rip down a mountain bike trail.
