Oakville private Christian schools offer a dual-track curriculum. Like other Christian schools (such as Catholic schools), they offer both a secular and religious education, both of which place high demands on students.

Many students find this very challenging and rewarding. This kind of education can also prepare students well for future studies.

Oakville is a suburban town that's part of the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). Its population is over 180, 000. It has numerous sports teams, musical festivals (including an annual summer jazz festival), and other attractions. It also has a lively community, which includes a variety of opportunities in arts and culture.
