About Stone Child College
Stone Child College (SCC) is a tribally-controlled community college of the Chippewa Cree Tribe, offering programs of study that can lead to degrees and certificates. SCC is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities and is listed in the Accredited Institutions of Higher Education (AIHEC) published by the American Council on Education for the Council on Post-Secondary Accreditation.
SCC was chartered by the Chippewa Cree Business Committee on May 17, 1984. It was the feeling of tribal leaders that the establishment of a college was necessary for the preservation and maintenance of the Chippewa Cree culture, and for the educational training of its tribal membership. Post-secondary educational programs designed to meet the specific needs of the Chippewa Cree tribe is a great necessity. SCC is committed to meeting the needs of the community, tribal members, tribal programs, and is dedicated to helping promote pride in each tribal member's Chippewa Cree heritage.
