Lake Trail Community Education Society
What is a Community School?
A Community School takes one of the largest and most under-utilized public facilities, the public school, and increases the investment by keeping it open evenings, weekends and during the summer for community activities.
Through multi-ministry funding and non-profit partnerships, community schools address the needs of all age groups, with programs for pre-school children, after school care, and adult education and recreation. The expanded mandate of the educational system in recent years has strengthened the potential of community schools in British Columbia.
In 2019, Lake Trail Middle School and Lake Trail Community Education Society (LTCES) received official community school designation. The development of Lake Trail Community Middle School moving forward is a collaborative partnership between Lake Trail Community Education Society and Lake Trail Middle School.
Our Mission: Lake Trail Community Education Society promotes an integrated focus on lifelong learning, healthy lifestyles, community development and engagement leading to improved learning, stronger families and a healthier community. Lake Trail Community Middle School strives to be a neighbourhood centre accessible to everyone.

Comox Valley Community Foundation Support
LTCES has also received funding from the Comox Valley Community Foundation through the COVID-19 Emergency Response Grants Round Two. This funding allows us to add extra protein and carbs into our salad bar program leading up to September 30th, providing added nutritional support for kids and families in the community during these challenging times. We are so very grateful for the support of the foundation towards this free meal program!
