The housing program is a unique program for the students of Fort Vermilion Public school. It allows students to earn credits towards high school graduation while gaining valuable knowledge in the field of construction. It is a very hands on course that provides practical knowledge that students can use in their own households, after high school. There has been numerous projects since start of the program in 2006. The projects have included, the construction of sheds as well as picnic tables for Mackenzie County to renovating the home ec room in Fort Vermilion Public School. The biggest project thus far has been the completion of the triplex beside the school and two homes in Mackenzie County.
The program is excellent way for students to learn skills that are beneficial for their lives after school.
