History

The Old Crow Alice Frost Community Campus first opened its doors to meet the education and training needs of the Vuntut Gwitchin people in 1987.

Housed in several locations over the years, it now has its own building with two spacious classrooms and offices where various programs and courses are delivered.

Strong partnerships with the Vuntut Gwitchin First Nation, Chief Zzeh Gittlit School and other agencies have ensured the success of the campus programming in this most northerly Yukon community of three hundred people.

The campus building is named after Chief Alice Frost (1937-1998) who was a fierce advocate for education and instrumental in creating a College campus in Old Crow.
