- About Us
Praxis International Institute offers an in-depth, student focused Canadian high school education catering to Canadian and international students who are interested not only in a high school diploma, but also environmental sustainability, entrepreneurship, global citizenry and technology.
While we use the Saskatchewan government Evergreen curriculum as our core, we think outside the box of traditional learning and enhance the curriculum with our own teaching approach and subject matter. We attract students who, in addition to excelling academically, are interested in understanding and practicing being a global citizen; learning how to create ideas and think critically; actively participate in the community; work with technology; and build their entrepreneurial toolkit.
Students are required to complete a minimum of 24 courses in order to graduate with a Saskatchewan high school diploma. Twelve mandatory courses and 12 electives are needed from the list below.
For prospective international students, Praxis is an English immersion school. Students whose first language is not English will have access to tutors and language coaches if needed.
Semesters: Our school year currently runs from September to June with the first semester starting in September and the second semester in February. There are several national and provincial holidays we observe during the year as well.

Important High School Features
Effective use of technology in business and design applications is necessary for success in the job market and as an entrepreneur. We provide access to the latest versions of well known business software for completing projects. We are also committed to minimizing paper flow by utilizing electronic applications whenever possible, thereby supporting a greener world.
Future employment, education or entrepreneurship will be in an increasingly global environment. As such, we research, discuss and experience international issues through learning groups, dialogue, multi media and community work. Cross cultural learning will also occur in a safe environment by growing our culturally diverse school body.
Our entrepreneurship program is based upon our successful post secondary program that has seen over 700 adult graduates launch businesses. By combining practical learning about business with meeting and working with entrepreneurs, students will gain the business and personal skills that will help them either run their own business or work effectively in an organization. We focus on building sustainable and socially responsible enterprises. Students will be able to design their own small enterprises while in school and see first hand how to build something that is successful.
Our commitment to build an eco friendly campus and live in an environmentally responsible way will enable students to see how they can live with a minimal footprint. As we build the campus further we will be adding greenhouses so students will learn how to grow their own fresh food rich in nutrients and prepare meals.
