The Pelly Crossing Campus was established in 1985. In 1996, the Pelly Crossing Elders gave the campus its Northern Tutchone name Het sedan Ku which translates to “Learning House”.
Over the years the campus has moved from the old Selkirk First Nation Administration building, to the community hall, a college trailer, and finally to a brand new campus in 2011. In August of that year the new 1.4 million facility was officially opened to meet the educational needs of the Pelly Crossing citizens and residents of the area. The new campus is situated next to the Eliza Van Bibber School.
