  • BC Christian schools are built on faith, teaching children basic Biblical beliefs and providing them with a moral grounding.

    Sending your child to a Christian school means exposing them to a community that shares their values, but also offers them the opportunity to reflect on his or her own religious beliefs. In this supportive and open environment, Christian schools are not teaching students they have to be Christian, but why and how.

    One-thing parents will need to keep in mind is that different Christian schools may follow different Christian curriculum. For example, some schools may teach based on the Protestant tradition, while others may follow the Catholic calendar and viewpoints.

    Paying for a BC Christian School

    Finding a Christian school within your budget is certainly possible. Make sure to research as many schools as you can and try to find a school that may fit what you’re willing to spend. Sending your son or daughter to a Christian school may make you eligible for a tax break. And, if needed, start searching for bursaries or scholarships as soon as possible. Our financial aid finder will help you find schools offering financial options.

    British Columbia private Christian schools

    British Columbia is a great place to live and raise a family. It can also be a great place to attend a private school, including a private Christian school. BC Christian schools, in Vancouver, Victoria, and elsewhere, provide kids with a solid grounding in Christian theology and values. They also are very strong in secular subjects, such as math, science, history, and French.

    British Columbia is a province on the west coast of Canada. Its capital is Victoria, and its largest city is Vancouver. It's a beautiful province, which is home to Vancouver Island, the Okanagan region, and the Fraser Valley. It also has temperate rainforests and intersects with the Rockies, a mountain range that extends over several provinces in Canada, and states in the US.
