Academics

At Mountain Christian School in both our elementary and high school programs, education means fostering and growing a spiritually tuned, critical and open-minded pursuit of knowledge that will provide students with the intellectual tools to enable them to respond to a rapidly changing world. In a broader sense, our educational vision is intended to build a foundation for spiritual, social, cultural and recreational interests that will help students move toward a meaningful personal and professional life. Academically, our aim is to enable students to think deeply and critically, and to gain a lasting intellectual self-confidence so that they may have both the ability and the desire to be life-long learners

At Mountain Christian School, the goal of high quality education is reflected in the following commitments:

  1. to teach students in a variety of challenging contexts and in general provide them with a positive, safe learning environment;

  2. to maintain high academic standards;

  3. to foster excellence in teaching, to encourage scholarship, research, performance and artistic endeavour, and to engage students, where appropriate, in these activities.

  4. to guide students by speaking into and helping them interpret the world around them with grace, peace, love, inclusiveness and a transforming mind and heart.
