[Our mission is] to provide quality education in a safe and caring environment by revitalizing the Mi’kmaq language and culture, promoting respect, responsibility, skill development and understanding of the Mi’kmaq unique traditions, in partnership with students, families, and the community.

[Our vision is that] every Elsipogtog student will graduate with the skills and understanding to lead a successful, responsible, productive life—a successful holistic life-long journey rooted in the Mi’kmaq language and culture.

[We value] all children to have the ability to learn and the right to an education that cultivates their gifts, [which] reflects the Seven Sacred Teachings—working in partnership with parents [and guardians] so that all children reach their full potential and recognize their unique talents to become wise, thoughtful, and caring adults who are also lifelong learners.
