Montreal has some great Christian schools. These schools tend to have a demanding secular curriculum. They also have required religion classes, often at least one or two per term.

These classes focus on bible studies and traditional Christian theology. They also focus on important values, such as honesty, responsibility, and respect.

Montreal Christian schools offer a full curriculum while also providing a strong foundation in the values and the traditions of Christian life. In addition to their secular and religious curriculum, they typically also have some type of religious observance. This might include weekly chapel services. It also often includes special ceremonies, events, and celebrations on holy days.

Christian schools in Montreal welcome students of all beliefs. A student usually doesn't need to be Christian or have any specific religious background to attend one of these schools. 

Chistian schools and other faith-based schools (such as Catholic and Jewish schools) offer an enhanced curriculum. They also focus on values, ethics, and a spiritual life.
