Stone Child College is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities and is listed in the Accredited Institutions of Higher Education published by the American Council on Education for the Council on Post-Secondary Accreditation. Stone Child College was chartered by the Chippewa Cree Business Committee on May 17, 1984. It was the feeling of tribal leaders that the establishment of a college was necessary for the preservation and maintenance of the Chippewa-Cree culture, and for the educational training of its tribal membership. Post-secondary educational programs designed to meet the specific needs of the Chippewa Cree tribe is of paramount necessity. The College is committed to meeting the needs of the community, tribal members, tribal programs, and is dedicated to helping promote pride in each tribal member’s Chippewa-Cree heritage.
The new Stone Child College Campus is located at the Bonneauville community which is seven (7) miles east of Box Elder, Montana. Kennewash Hall was completed in 2003 and named at the summer 2003 dedication in honor of Chief Kennewash, an original tribal member and early supporter of education who helped build the first school in Rocky Boy. The Kennewash Hall houses eleven classrooms, ten faculty offices, and the offices of Foundations & Research Department, The Learning Center, Student Support Services, Dean of Academics, and other administrative staff. All classrooms are equipped with computers tied into the college’s network, and all classrooms have Internet access.
