SFNC Education Department provides education advisory, advocacy, and technical services to the communities of Wunnumin Lake, Kingfisher Lake, Wapekeka, Kasabonika Lake and Wawakapewin.

Presently, all communities have schools except for Wawakapewin. The community schools offer elementary and some secondary programs, except for Kasabonika Lake, providing all secondary programs. After the students complete the highest grade provided, they must leave the community to attend off-reserve secondary schools. Kasabonika Lake continues to send their secondary students off-reserve due to space and academics.

The Secondary Education Student Services (SESS) program provides off-reserve secondary student support services to an average of 65 students per year. SESS operates out of the Shibogama office in Sioux Lookout, Ontario. It also has an office in Thunder Bay, Ontario.

Shibogama will be focusing on language retention, revitalization and developing immersion programs.
