Our Take: Caronport High School (Briercrest)

our takeCaronport was established in 1946, and at a property that was dedicated as the new location of the Briercrest Bible Institute on Canada Day of that year. The school remains in partnership with Briercrest College and Briercrest Seminary, with all contributing to the same foundational goals of offering leadership in Christian education. Throughout the school’s history, the program has remained innovative and forward looking, something which it retains today. The student population is small and close-knit, and the school reaps the benefits of its size, namely a very focused learning environment, a clear sense of belonging and engagement, and a high level of individual attention. The boarding program supports international learners through guidance and ESL. The ideal student is one able to thrive in a challenging yet supportive academic environment.

Principal's Message


Deborah Ike, Principal

At Caronport High School, we are committed to providing students with an educational experience that will develop every aspect of their being to their fullest potential. Jesus teaches us that His greatest commandments are to "'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind … [and to] love your neighbour as yourself'" (Matthew 22:36, NIV). We believe that God has called us to address the whole person through a program of strong academics, varied extracurricular options, and intentional spiritual nurturing. This is the kind of education that can change you, and then change your world through you.

As a body of learning, we are part of each student's journey of faith and career preparation – not just a destination point. Caronport High School, an important facet of Briercrest College and Seminary, provides a unique learning environment where students enjoy spiritual, academic, and extracurricular activities that enables us more fully to walk this journey with them.

It is our deepest hope and prayer that this unique school will become a place where you can be called closer to faith and, in turn, draw your world closer to Christ.


Curriculum Traditional

Primary Curriculum: Traditional

What CHS (Briercrest) says: At Caronport High School, a Christian perspective is infused in everything we do. We provide a private Christian school experience while offering the best of public education. Since CHS holds associate status with Prairie South School Division our curriculum is held to provincial standards and graduates meet all provincial regulations to receive a Saskatchewan High School Diploma. In addition to the Saskatchewan credit requirements, students take a Christian Ethics class at every grade level. As well, students in our Reach Ahead track have the option of taking Briercrest College courses. While our primary focus is academic, Caronport High School places a significant emphasis on co-curricular activities. We offer numerous athletic, fine arts, and service opportunities with the majority of our students involved in one or more co-curricular activity. This is an integral part of what we do at CHS as we support students to grow holistically. We specifically enable students to participate in a wide variety of activities with our unique semester system involving six periods per day and three terms per year.

  • Pedagogies and subject courses:

  • Mathematics Equal Balance

      These math programs feature an equal balance of “Traditional” and “Discovery” methods.
      Learn about the different mathematics approaches  

    • What CHS (Briercrest) says: Students begin math in Grade 9 focusing on basic skills and preparation for further studies. In Grade 10 students choose between Workplace and Apprenticeship, which is highly interactive and uses work related examples as much as a possible, and Foundations and Pre-Calculus, which focuses on building concepts and foundational learning. Grade 11 and 12 students take one of three pathways in Mathematics. Workplace and Apprenticeship is designed for entry into the majority of the trades or directly to the work force. Foundations is designed for entry into post-secondary programs without theoretical calculus. Pre-Calculus is designed for entry into post-secondary with theoretical calculus.

    • Textbooks and supplementary materials: This information is not currently available.

    • Calculator policy: A TI-83 plus Calculator is required for math classes in Grade 12, including Pre-Calculus and Calculus. It is also helpful for Physics in Grade 12 but it is not required.

    Science Equal Balance

      Science programs that balance expository and inquiry learning equally will likely have an equal blend of tests and experiments; direct, textbook-based instruction and student-centred projects.
      Learn about the different science approaches  

    • Teaching approach: At CHS, science is taught with a biblical perspective from a conservative Christian tradition. Our faith is highly integrated to our study and practice of science. Students examine a range of philosophies and disciplines with a focus on giving students sound logical foundation for believing that the Christian viewpoint is compatible with science.

    • Topics covered in curriculum:

      Subject = offered
    • Treatment of evolution:

      Evolution as consensus theory
      Evolution as one of many equally viable theories
      Evolution is not taught

    Literature Equal Balance

      These literature programs draw in equal measure from “Traditional” and “Social Justice” programs.
      Learn about the different literature approaches  

    • What CHS (Briercrest) says: As curriculum is planned, the themes for each grade are specifically chosen to be relevant and engaging for that age group. Students in grade 9 learn about unusual characters, friendship, and fairness as they study literature. In Grade 10, the themes of the unknown, challenges, decisions, and the environment are at the forefront. The selection of works in Grade 11 are centered around the themes of recollection and anticipation. Grade 12 students will study literature based on the diverse voices within Canada and around the world. Works will be drawn from both Christian and secular sources in an effort to portray a wide variety of response to the human condition and experience. It is intended that the exploration of various worldviews from a Christian perspective will prepare students for the world beyond the classroom, as well as postsecondary education.

    Humanities and Social Sciences Equal Balance

      These programs represent an equal balance between the perennialist and pragmatic approach to teaching the humanities and social sciences.

    Fine Arts Creative

      Creative arts programs are studio-driven. While historical works and movements may still be taught to add context to the program, students mainly engage in making art (visual, musical, theatrical, etc). The goal is use the actual practice of art to help educate students’ emotions, cognition, and ethos.

    • Program offers:

    • Visual studio philosophy:

    • What CHS (Briercrest) says: Our goal is to engage students in a wide variety of mediums and develop skill through practice. Students benefit from the larger Briercrest community through guest teachers, mentors, and increased opportunities. Briercrest has a long history of excellence in the arts, including a large Christmas production, two "Summer Stage" musical productions per year, a pottery guild, a recording arts studio, and numerous musical recitals (vocal and instrumental).

    Computers and Technology Medium integration

      Effort is made to integrate the development of digital literacy through the curriculum. However, this is not a dominant focus.
      Learn about the different computers and technology approaches

    • Program covers:

      Subject = offered
      Computer science

    Physical Education
    • What CHS (Briercrest) says: Our Physical Education program supports student achievement of curricular outcomes through inquiring for healthy decision making, balancing the dimensions of wellness and well-being, embracing a comprehensive school community health approach, incorporating service learning, and designing a personal plan for well-being. We construct understanding through inquiry. Inquiry learning provides students with opportunities to build knowledge, abilities, and inquiring habits of mind that lead to deeper understanding of their world and human experience. Students who engage in inquiry construct knowledge and deep understanding rather than passively receiving information, encounter alternative perspectives and differing ideas that transform prior knowledge and experience into deep understandings, are directly involved in the discovery of new knowledge rather than passively receiving information, transfer new knowledge and skills to new circumstances, and take ownership and responsibility for their ongoing learning and master of curriculum content and skills.

    • What CHS (Briercrest) says: All students, grade 9-12, are enrolled in Christian Ethics class for which they get Saskatchewan course credit. Students are in CE class on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays. On Wednesdays and Fridays students attend Chapel which rotates through a schedule of small groups, high school chapels, and Briercrest chapels that include our college and seminary. Additionally, twice a year we have Spiritual Emphasis Week that features morning and evening chapels focused on individual growth and increased community. Our Director of Discipleship gives leadership to these events, plans service projects, and mentors students.

    Sex and Health Education Saskatchewan curriculum
    Topics covered in sex and health education: This information is not currently available.

    What CHS (Briercrest) says: All of our sex education is taught from a Christian perspective and we teach a biblical view of sexuality. We strive to teach a breadth of relevant topics and consider how our faith influences our beliefs about sex and sexuality. In addition to educating students, we place an emphasis on equipping and educating parents so that they are able to engage more meaningfully with their kids about a variety of subjects including sex. One way we do this is by hosting parent learning nights open to parents and community members. Our focus of these nights is to educate on current issues and partner with parents in student learning.

    Mostly value-neutral

    By and large, we teach sex education free of any particular moral or ethical standpoint. We try not to impose any particular values or value systems (such as social, political, or ideological values) on our students when teaching sex and related issues.

    Fairly value-based

    Sex education is sometimes taught from a particular moral or ethical standpoint. Sometimes particular values or value systems (such as social, political, or ideological values) are invoked when teaching sex and related issues.


    This includes a range of positions. A traditional approach might, for example, go as far as emphasizing the nuclear family and complete abstinence from sex before marriage. Alternatively, this approach might simply involve placing less emphasis on sex outside of the context of marriage and more emphasis on abstinence. Or finally, it might just involve focusing less on sex outside of the context of marriage.

    67 % of Our Kids' schools use a traditional approach for sex and health education


    This might mean more emphasis is placed on the importance of such things as social equality, diversity, and choice in sex education.

    What CHS (Briercrest) says: Our sex education is delivered in leveled, grade-appropriate formats across our academic, co-curricular and student life programs. It is designed to be holistic in approach, acknowledging the whole person by learning about how sexually-focused aspects relate to overall well-being. Our goal is to include inter-connected layers of sexual health, relational health, cultural and ethnic diversity, and Christian faith. We explore how sex and sexuality affect friendships, romantic relationships, family relationships, and our relationship with God.

    Curriculum Pace Standard-enriched

    • Standard-enriched
    • Accelerated
    • Student-paced

    Broadly-speaking, the main curriculum -- like that of most schools -- paces the provincially-outlined one. This pace is steady and set by the teachers and school. The curriculum might still be enriched in various ways: covering topics more in-depth and with more vigor than the provincial one, or covering a broader selection of topics.

    Flexible pacing:

    Flexible pacing style = offered
    Subject-streaming (tracking)
    Multi-age classrooms as standard
    Ability-grouping (in-class) as common
    Frequent use of cyber-learning (at-their-own-pace)
    Regular guided independent study opportunities
    Differentiated assessment

    What CHS (Briercrest) says about flexible pacing: This information is not currently available.

    Academic Culture Supportive

    • Rigorous
    • Supportive

    A school with a “supportive” academic culture focuses more on process than short-term outcomes: academic performance is a welcomed side-benefit, but not the driving focus. This does not mean the school lacks standards, or has low expectations for its students: a school can have a supportive academic culture and still light the fire of ambition in its students. It does mean, however, the school provides a less intensive culture than schools with a “rigorous” academic classification, and is focused more simply on instilling a love of learning and life-long curiosity.

    What CHS (Briercrest) says: This information is not currently available.

    Developmental Priorities Spiritual, Balanced

    Primary Developmental Priority: Spiritual
    Individuals with inner resourcefulness, strong faith, and respect for God or a higher power.

    Secondary Developmental Priority: Balanced
    Equal attention is paid to a balance of priorities: intellectual, emotional, social, and physical.

    What CHS (Briercrest) says: Our heartbeat is to offer a Christ-centered, Bible-based, and ministry-focused education that prepares students to excel academically, relationally, spiritually, and professionally. Caronport High School is a launch pad of holistic growth, personal development, educational encouragement, and discipleship that invites our students to strive for excellence in every area of life.

    Stories & Testimonials


    Student Testimonial

    I love that in our smaller community the teachers can really invest in every single student and care for each one of us. It's also nice that when you walk down the halls you aren't passing by strangers but good friends and people you know really well. 


    Staff Testimonial

    As at teacher at Caronport High School, I am always impressed with how involved our students are and how driven they are to succeed. This drive makes it easy to really build into relationships and because there is a spiritual aspect of the schooling, you can have much deeper conversations with students than you ever would elsewhere. 


    Student Testimonial

    My time at CHS has honestly been the best of my life. We start out like you start walking, unsure at first, but then progressing further and further until you are running. The people here are so accepting, teachers and students both. The teachers start out knowing that we are unsure of ourselves, but as we become comfortable, they stop becoming teachers and start becoming friends that teach you subjects. Whatever you do here, the people set you up to succeed. They know that you will have bad times, and are there to support you when they happen, teaching you why and deepening your faith in God. It's like our chaplain says, 'It's a giant youth group.' But it's even a bit more than that. It's a family. 


    Student Testimonial

    Coming to CHS has been life-changing for me. I've learned so much about Christ and experience the love of many people. I am amazed by the dynamics of this community as a school, and here I've met fantastic teachers and people that genuinely care about us.
