Our Take: Signet Christian School

our takeSCS was formed in 1974 as an expression of the surrounding community, and created by a group of parents who wanted a school that would offer a strong academic program within a values-based environment. The name has changed, and enrollment has grown, though that focus remains. The school isn’t affiliated with a specific denomination, and attracts students from any and all, as well as those that don’t belong to a specific faith tradition. There are many ways that schools express Christian ideals, and in the case of SCS it’s very much those of inclusion, service, and ethical behavior. The school has a very close, community feel, and what it might lack in terms of extra-curriculars it gains in individual attention and a sense of belonging within the school community.

Principal's Message

principal

Catherine Dume, Principal

What makes Signet special? Everyone wants to make their life count, to leave a good impression on the world. In the ancient kingdoms, a royal seal of a "signet ring" would represent the king wherever it was sent. So at Signet School each student is educated and shaped to truly represent our King. Christian values and mores bring ancient truth to life as each student pursues excellence. Our staff ably guides each student on a journey, through a process of exploration and inquiry through the lens of a biblical worldview

Our strategy is to keep things simple and focused as we keep classrooms small. Small is beautiful here at Signet! We favour small class sizes so that every student receives the nurturing attention he or she needs for success. . Simply put, no-one is ever ignored and the Signet focus makes learning a beautiful process. Signet's academic curriculum, while rigorous at the core, gives support for those that need it. The students get more attention especially great for our wonderful "home away from home" for international students. Here we provide a place to belong and  gathering students from all over the world, we find it makes for friendships that last forever.

Signet Christian's seal has the ancient etchings of Honour, Discipline, Confidence and Kindness. As students embrace these in their lives together that makes Signet truly special and a beautiful place to be.

About Catherine Morgan-Dumé, MBA, MA Ed, (Honours):  Education Consultant. She previously sat on the Board of Directors before taking the reigns as the Principal in 2014. She is a former lecturer at Laval University in Quebec and College and K-12 Director at Caribbean Christ for the Nations.


Academics


Curriculum Traditional

Primary Curriculum: Traditional


What Signet Christian School says: The Signet Christian curriculum is one which takes Christian traditional mores and infuses these values into a philosophy and thinking system which enhances learning and growth in the classroom. We interweave biblical worldview into the curriculum. Our lifestyle Christianity evidenced in the lives of our staff makes this possible in the classrooms, and in chapels. Other extracurricular activities all come together, designed to teach Christian values. The visual, musical and dramatic arts are taught in all grades and French is part of the curriculum from the junior kindergarten onward. Sports and Gym are central and all grades have access to computer technology in class.

  • Approach:
    Focus Religious-based

  • 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 Signet Christian School says: In the younger grades we use both the Discovery Math technique having a foundation in the Traditional method. We encourage frequent repetition and drills to ensure mastery in the procedures. We then borrow a few new concepts form Discovery Math where the children spend some quality time in critical thinking and number sense but not before understanding. This goes according to our belief that discovery is not random, but once you establish procedural understanding then conceptual and applied understanding will follow. In the higher grades students teach each other to consolidate understanding and enrich application to real problems. At these grades although traditional math is used the students are taught how to logically arrive at their solutions and can articulate this. Higher grades lean more heavily on Traditional Math methodology.

    • Textbooks and supplementary materials: Discovery Math, Nelson Math, MathSmart

    • Calculator policy: Calculators are allowed when specified by the teacher. All calculator use must be proved on paper in the higher grades and in lower grade calculator use is to discover numerical patterns.


    Early Reading Balanced Literacy

      Balanced reading programs are typically Whole Language programs with supplementary phonics training. This training might be incidental, or it might take the form of mini-lessons.
      Learn about the different early reading approaches  


    • What Signet Christian School says: Our Early Reading approach is eclectic. As a base we use the systematic-phonics program, where young children read by recognizing and sounding out the letters and syllables of words; blending sounds together to sound out and recognize the whole word. However we have found that we need to use whole language at times because of age or stage of development. Sometimes children need a blend of both. We then apply Whole Language on an "as needed" basis. So in the Kindergarten years and Grade 1, we teach phonics in a specific sequence, and use extensive repetition and direct instruction to help readers associate specific letter patterns with their associated sounds. Then use Whole Language focusing on getting students to infer and guess at words based on their understanding of the larger meaning of the sentence.

    • DIBELS Testing: This school does not use DIBELS testing to assess reading progress.

    • What Signet Christian School says: NO. We use the reading running records and answers given to reading comprehension questions to assess students reading.


    Writing Systematic approach

      The systematic approach to teaching beginner writing focuses on directly imparting explicit sentence construction strategies, along with planning, revising, and editing skills. Students are asked to learn these explicit strategies and skills and practice them before applying them in more holistic writing assignments. Grammar and parts of sentences tend to have a central role in systematic writing instruction.
      Learn about the different writing approaches  


    • What Signet Christian School says: Students learn to express their thoughts, feelings, experiences, opinions, and/or ideas in a written composition using standard forms of writing and grade specific conventions for intended purposes. They begin the writing process by brainstorming, generating, and ordering ideas for writing into paragraphs. After planning, students insert their ideas into frameworks and use success criteria checklists to write a rough draft. Next, they use editing checklists to proofread and revise their work so that they may complete their good copy. Creative writing and story composition is encouraged at all grade levels.


    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: Our science curriculum in the lower grades is organized into four strands which are Understanding Life Systems, Understanding Structures and Mechanisms, Understanding Matter and Energy, and Understanding Earth and Space Systems. Students are not only taught the basic concepts of science, but inquiry skills through experimentation. They are also encouraged to relate what they have learned to society and the environment. As they enter the higher grades they add more "doing" as they work on projects, experiment in labs as interactive and engaging in simulations.

    • Topics covered in curriculum:

      Subject = offered
      Biology
      Chemistry
      Ecology
      Geology
      Meteorology
      Physics
      Physiology
      Zoology
    • 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 Signet Christian School says: At Signet we expose students to different styles and a variety of genres. We pick examples that will spark student interest. We teach students research and critical thinking skills. We seek to teach students as they read to jump in, and engage in the social issues pertaining the wider community.


    Social Studies Core Knowledge

      Usually focused on teaching history and geography at an early age, the core knowledge approach uses story, drama, reading, and discussion to teach about significant people, places, and events. Breadth of content and knowledge is emphasized. The curriculum is often organized according to the underlying logic of the content: history might be taught sequentially, for example (as students move through the grades).
      Learn about the different social studies approaches  


    • What Signet Christian School says: The expectations for the social studies curriculum are divided into two strands which are Heritage and Identity and People and Environments for the lower grades. Students are taught to investigate and explore events, developments, and/or issues that occurred in history and determine their impact by making connections between the past and the present.


    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.
      Learn about the different humanities and social sciences approaches  


    • What Signet Christian School says: We use research and inquiry skills to analyze the significance of the past for today. We allow students to engage in thoughtful reflection and expression as well as to analyze situations from different perspectives.


    Foreign Languages Equal Balance

      These programs feature an equal blend of the audio-lingual and communicative styles of language instruction.
      Learn about the different foreign languages approaches  


    • What Signet Christian School says: A balance of Audio-Lingual and Communicative is used group work, games, authentic texts, and opportunities to learn about the cultural background of the language. Drills and quizzes are used but we also expect students to correctly imitate the teacher in French.

    • Studying a foreign language is required until:   9
    • Languages Offered: • French • ESL


    Fine Arts Equal Balance

      These programs have an equal emphasis on receptive and creative learning.
      Learn about the different fine arts approaches  


    • Program offers:

      Subject = offered
      Acting
      Dance
      Drama/Theatre
      Graphic Design
      Music
      Visual Arts
    • Visual studio philosophy:

      Expressive
      Disciplined
    • What Signet Christian School says: We provide an Equal Balance approach between Receptive and Creative/Studio-work in our arts programs. We cover art history and appreciation as well as spending time Expressive methodology creating or “making” art. Students learn about various artistic works and movements, and are asked to reflect on their underlying aesthetic features and principles. We aim to develop their cognitive, emotional, and aesthetic sensibilities by doing and from a knowledge of the history and appreciation of the art form. For the lower grades students are taught grade specific elements that relate to each of the art disciplines. They are then given the opportunity to use these forms to create or perform works that convey or express thoughts, feelings, and or ideas through the arts. They are also encouraged to make connections, analyse, and communicate the meaning or the message of their own work or the works of others.


    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  


    • What Signet Christian School says: In the lower grades there is a Light integration of Computers and Technology. Computers are used to support subject based learning through the use of videos, interactive websites, and word processing skills. However as we look to Grades 6 and up, we describe our integration as Medium. Here, computers are used in the classroom frequently but they are not a dominant focus. Teachers provide various opportunity for the student to engage in research as well as to produce work via this medium. Students present Word documents, use PowerPoint, and spreadsheets and so on using computers. We ensure safe practices on the internet.

    • Program covers:

      Subject = offered
      Computer science
      Robotics
      Web design

    Physical Education
    • What Signet Christian School says: At Signet our curriculum for Gym and Health education reflects Christian values. We teach skills such as teamwork, sports skills, how to be healthy (spiritually, mentally and physically). We encourage students to participate in a range of Sports and physical activities.


    Religious Education 11 to 25% of curriculum
    • Approach to teaching religious and secular curricula

      Completely segregated
      Mostly segregated
      Completely integrated
      Mostly integrated
      Not applicable
    • Approach to teaching religion

      Scripture as literal
      Scripture as interpretive
    • What Signet Christian School says: Highly Integrated is the best definition for our Religious Education, although we do not term any subjects as "secular". God is central according to our worldview. We foster core spiritual values and up to grade 6, we use the ACSI Bible Curriculum covering Bible characters and the character traits they possessed. We cover the life of Jesus and discuss what it means to be a Christian. Prayer for each other and for our community is a daily exercise and the development of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, is key. We seek to share practical ways that each person can live out his/her faith so that he/she may impact society for Christ. Although we believe that the text is the literal word of God, we believe He helps us to interpret it in our present circumstance and so discussion is important so that together we can better apply these teachings.


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

    What Signet Christian School says: This information is not currently available.

    Approach:
    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.

    Traditional

    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.

    Progressive

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

    Preschool/K Curriculum Academic

    • Play-based
    • Montessori
    • Waldorf
    • Reggio Emilia
    • Academic

    Academic-based preschools and Kindergartens are the most structured of the different types, and have a strong emphasis on math and reading readiness skills. These programs aim to expose children to what early-elementary school is like. While time is still allotted to free play, much of the day is built around explicit lessons guided by the teacher. Classrooms often resemble play-based ones (with different stations set up around the room), but at an Academic program the teacher leads students through the stations directly, and ties these activities to a whole-class lesson or theme.

    If you want to learn more about preschool education, check out our comprehensive guide. You can also read our in-depth answers to important preschool questions: What is preschool? What are the main preschool programs? What are the main pros and cons of preschool? What do children learn in preschool? How much does preschool cost?  What makes for a great preschool?

    What Signet Christian School says: Our Kindergarten is unique because we use Christian Curriculum as we focus on Academics to prepare the child with the foundation for learning. Lead by experienced teachers, our curriculum is designed to teach multiple subjects in both seated and kinesthetic modes. We believe that understanding truth and values can start very young. Character training and leadership of self and others are introduced through creative teaching methods. As core values are laid kindergarten is such a fun phase and lessons are stepping blocks for life.


    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 Signet Christian School says about flexible pacing: Our Grades 9 - 12 curriculum support online guided independent study opportunities.


    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 Signet Christian School says: At Signet Christian we have a strong academic culture, however, it is seated in a supportive environment. Signet's academic focus is to achieve excellence and to do this we believe this is reliant directly upon the presence of a solid foundation of character and positive support from teachers and family. So we remain close to families to ensure the student's high academic performance. We believe a balanced life bears the fruit of true success. Children who have cultivated these core values are thus successful in all their endevours, not just academics.


    Developmental Priorities Intellectual, Social

    Primary Developmental Priority: Intellectual
    Academically strong, creative, and critical thinkers, capable of exercising rationality, apprehending truth, and making aesthetic distinctions.

    Secondary Developmental Priority: Social
    Socially aware and active citizens, motivated to change the world (or their community) for the better.

    What Signet Christian School says: As a holistic school, we want all students to grow in mind, body, and spirit. However, children come to us with a variety of needs and strengths. Over the years Signet students have told of not only the academic growth but as our mission stated they are changing their world, making an impact where they are planted by God. Signet school works in balance but with emphasis first on Intellectual and secondarily Social, assuming spiritual growth in their faith will come organically, we do not force this area.

    Sharing life at Signet

    "I am finished my grade eight level, (so) next year I will be in high-school. I am glad that I can go to high-school because it means I am growing up! Although my mom and dad are not in Canada, I am still happy because I have my aunt and uncle....

    I love this school, because the teachers believe in God, and I made a lot of friends here. Before I didn't want to go to school because I felt bored. I felt school was torture, but now I enjoy going to school because I have a lot of fun in school and I don't get bored because we always laugh, and we always share our life with each other. I am happy that I can come to this school and study here. "

    I can be myself!

    "It all started when I went to the summer camp at the school building. I was nervous at first because I was worried about going to a smaller school. I did not know how well I would fit in because I was not used to being in a Christian environment... after spending 3 years I have become not only a better student but a better person as well. I have gotten along with a lot of people and I have become a more mature student. I have also improved as a student getting better marks on my report card... God put me in such a wonderful safe environment that I do not have to worry about getting bullied. I can just be myself. "

    Building Confidence

    As parents, we have been thankful to God that our son has been at Signet Christian School for past 3 years. In past years, we could see that he has benefited greatly from the teachers in this school, all of whom have caring hearts and kindness, like Christ. The smaller scale of class helps him with more individual assistance from teachers, more space to discuss and develop his own thoughts on each subjects. These help him build up his confidence. Another thing we really appreciate, is daily morning devotion. That helps our son to get good practice learning and reflecting on the Christian values, and engage in practical discussions on world affairs. That has been great for him to develop personally and spiritually, preparing him to face challenges in terms of morality! Our son loves to bring those interesting discussion to home too, arising more space for parent-child talks. We are thankful to God for the passion for education at Signet Christian School.
