Private Christian schools in Ottawa have many of the same benefits as Christian schools in other cities. Like other faith-based schools (such as Catholic schools) combine a rigorous secular education with a strong grounding in religious studies. They also promote a strong a religious identity in their students, and offer a warm and close-knit community for both students and families.

Ottawa is the capital of Canada, and one of the biggest cities in Ontario. It's home to the federal government, where the prime minister and members of parliament work and pass laws. It's also a lovely and charming city, which is a great place to live and raise and family. It has beautiful residential neighbourhoods and affordable housing. It's also home to the famous Rideau Canal and River, and has lots of fun attractions, such as an annual tulip festival.
