Located on the Kalispel Indian Reservation above the Pend Oreille River, the unique school will be the new educational hub for the Tribe and the region.

The only Accredited Early Learning Center in Pend Oreille County, children from the Canadian border to Spokane utilize the current facility. The school has an extensive waiting list, making it challenging to provide care and education for everyone in the community.

The new Early Learning Center will alleviate the influx of children while also improving the educational delivery method through interior planning and landscape design. The design will help children develop dexterity and stimulate brain development.

The Tribe’s Salish Language School is currently taught out of a single-family home. This is where over 200 Tribal Members have learned to keep their language alive for future generations. The new Salish School will immerse students from grades Kindergarten-12 through the lens of a Kalispel Tribe. The teaching method is about sharing, history, and charting a bright future for the youth of the Kalispel Tribe of Indians. This mission will be delivered overlooking their inspiring heritage - river and herds of bison.

The 70,000 square feet facility will be united with the existing Camas Wellness Center; giving opportunity for the entire Tribe to participate at this campus in mind, body, and soul.
