Welcome to the Louis Riel Arts & Technology Centre (ATC).
Our dedicated staff will provide you with many challenges and opportunities
for growth. We are committed to providing students with relevant programs in an
environment that encourages strong working relationships with staff—essential
ingredients to student success. ATC programs are up-to-date, and based on
effective teacher-led instruction. Each program offers some combination of
apprenticeship accreditation, Red River College credit or industry
certification. These features enable students to begin and, in some cases,
complete their post-secondary education while in high school. Many students
choose to attend ATC following high school graduation, with most eligible for a
significant reduction in tuition fees.
We provide a unique service for students who wish to earn a Provincial Mature
Student High School Diploma in addition to their ATC program certificate by
offering provincially approved English, Math, and History high school
We take pride in the success of our graduates many of whom have successfully
entered the workforce upon program completion. Many others have pursued
industry-led training programs or further college or university education.
Our staff work closely with industry advisory groups and maintain active
partnerships to ensure that programs are relevant to student needs and compliant
with business and industry standards. ATC and business/industry partnerships
also benefit students by assisting them in developing meaningful connections and
facilitating transitions for employment. At ATC, your success is our primary
concern; we are dedicated to serve the needs of the learner community. We invite
you to join us in an exciting and dynamic educational experience.
