Academic Upgrading College Preparation
Portage College is a public board-governed college operating in northeastern Alberta. With main campuses in Lac La Biche, Cold Lake, and St. Paul, as well as satellite campuses in Boyle, Frog Lake Cree Nation, Saddle Lake Cree Nation, and Whitefish Lake First Nation #128, we offer students across our region local options for quality post-secondary education. Portage prides itself on being able to offer students a more personal touch to their educational journey that larger schools with more students just can’t provide. Instructors and professors have time for you at Portage.
Portage College offers certificate and diploma programs across a number of disciplines like apprenticeship training, education and human services, healthcare, business, college preparation, university transfer, culinary arts, hairstyling, environmental studies, and more. With online options for some programs, we offer students the flexibility they need to complete their education their way.
