The Almond Tree Christian Academy is a Christian based academic K-12 educational institution founded under the umbrella of Almond Tree Ministries Inc. It is located alongside the scenic Key First Nation in Saskatchewan.
Revs. Allan & Carole O’Soup observed a great need for a Christian based education for the children of the Key First Nation and surrounding communities including Aboriginal and Non-Aboriginal students alike. Thus ATCA was created to serve this purpose. The intent and desire is to see the students go on and be full and productive members of society. ATCA provides provincially recognized and accredited educational schooling through the education curriculum that is provided by the Accelerated Christian Education (ACE) based upon Christian values and principles.
The ATCA Mission is to provide the students with a quality of education that respects the word of God.
The ATCA Vision is to:
- Utilize the principles of Christianity and the Gospel of Jesus Christ in order to provide a multi-faceted quality curriculum that shall build and empower each child to grow in their fullest mental, spiritual, and emotional potential.
- Provide an avenue by which each child shall receive an education that enables the holistic development of the child’s personal strengths and identity within their community and the larger community.
- Provide successful educational enhancement in the overall development of each student, which shall enable each student to each be instruments of God in their own lives and in their own ways.
- Provide a quality education that is based upon the belief and faith that through God, restoration, healing and wellness can take place in the lives of broken hearted individuals, dysfunctional families, and oppressed communities.
