Academics are Enhanced through Christian Teachings

Daily devotions and Bible classes complement the exploring of God's world through the study of various subjects and themes. Materials to support these explorations come from:

  • Alberta Education approved resources¬†
  • Christian Schools International resources
  • Teaching for Transformation (TFT) - a curriculum development model that provides a framework for authentic Christian learning experiences. Please see Curriculum section for more details.¬†

Our teachers are encouraged to develop their own units and they have opportunities to do this with colleagues at other schools. Each unit acknowledges, reflects and seeks to develop a Christian way of life.
