About Us

As a teaching and learning organization, the Algoma District School Board exists to help all learners reach their fullest potential as “confident learners, caring citizens.” We are dedicated to providing a pathway for every learner in a public education system that is open, accessible and welcoming to all. Through our strategic priorities of Achievement, Well-being and Engagement, as well as character education, our students develop a sense of respect and responsibility for themselves and others while becoming caring citizens who respect diversity, contribute to society and who actively engage in making their schools and communities safe, healthy and caring places.
The geographic area served by the Algoma District School Board encompasses communities along the north shore of Lake Huron from Spanish to Sault Ste. Marie and along the east coast of Lake Superior from Sault Ste Marie to Wawa and includes Hornepayne, Chapleau and Elliot Lake.
The Algoma District offers quality of life particularly for outdoor enthusiasts. Surrounded by freshwater lakes, rivers and streams and mixed forests of coniferous and deciduous trees, this four seasons playground provides immediate access to magnificent scenery. The 
area is rich in history featuring sites of ancient native significance and offers both land and water access for exploration of historic voyageur routes. Creative arts and culture are important components of our communities with many active theatre groups and internationally acclaimed artists.
