Principal's Message

Aba Wathtech!

Welcome to Morley Community School.
My name is Jeff Horvath and I am thrilled to be back at Morley Community School.  I left 14 years ago to pursue the credentials and experience needed to be a principal and I’m finally back.  I am honoured to be entrusted with the role of leading MCS, serving the students and families of the Bearspaw, Chiniki and Wesley First Nations.  

As an Anishinabe educator, I know the importance of culture, language and land based education.  I also know that families need their children to achieve success in the western school system.  Our school meets both of these goals.  We follow the Alberta Education Program of Studies but enrich it with Stoney values and Stoney traditional knowledge.  We also strive to offer programs to expose our students to fields that may inspire them to develop new passions and dreams.  

Please feel free to contact us with any questions, concerns or ideas to make us even better.

Our History

Morley Community School opened in 1984 on the Stoney Reserve. It was named after the townsite of Morley located on the Stoney Reserve. The name Morley refers to the Methodist minister Dr. William Morley Punshon who was one of the first ministers to encounter the Stoney people in 1840's.

Morley Community School is funded by Indian and Northern affairs Canada, but follows the Alberta learning curriculum and Alberta School Act. The school reports to Alberta Learning which certifies the school if it determines that the appropriate provincial standards have been met. Therefore all course, certificates and diplomas from Morley Community School are fully recognized anywhere in Canada. The school is required to employ only Alberta Learning certified teachers for teaching positions.
