Roman Catholic missionaries provided educational services at their mission at Fort Vermilion, in what is now Alberta, from 1863 onwards. A residential school was established by the beginning of the twentieth century. The church, school, and convent were destroyed by fire in 1914. A second fire in 1932 destroyed the convent. Métis and non-Aboriginal students also attended this school. In the 1960s the school was turned into a residence for students attending local day schools. In 1968, the residence itself was closed.
