What is “Christian Education?”

As a parent in British Columbia, you have a number of great options when it comes to elementary and secondary education, but Christian education is distinct in that it fulfills provincial educational standards in the context of a Christian worldview. 

The Bishop of London on Christian Education

“A Christian education is not secular education with a halo, and a school does not become a Christian school because the teaching of the Christian religion is one of the subjects in the curriculum. Christian education is education in a school which embodies Christian attitudes and insights in its corporate life and in which Christian insights find expression in every subject in the curriculum.”

Simply put, Christian Education is education that sees God’s sovereignty over all things; from microscopes to civil engineering, from soccer to physics, from mathematics to drama. Christian Education is education that is provided from a distinctly Christian perspective, or worldview. In the words of Abraham Kuyper, “There is not a square inch in the whole domain of our human existence over which Christ, who is Sovereign over all, does not cry, ‘Mine!’” It is from this perspective that we offer an educational program.
