Our Perspective

How we see Brampton Christian School

BCS was founded in 1977 by the Kennedy Road Tabernacle and was initially known as KRT Christian School. It’s grown since, and the name was changed to reflect the school’s non-denominational perspective, though the school is now, just as it has always been, a part of the KRT ministry. Bob Boshart became principal in 1982 and over the next 26 years he consistently lead the development of the programs, accreditation, and the expansion into the upper grades. That said, the development has been very much guided by the school community, and the involvement of the families who have enrolled past and present is a great source of strength for the school. A fairly recent and substantial capital campaign has brought the school to where it is today, with a renewed infrastructure and a full complement of up-to-date instructional resources. Families are drawn to the reputation that the school has gained over its life, as well as a program based in the values of the Christian faith.

How Brampton Christian School sees itself

The school administration answered our questions

Who are you, as a school?

"Kids learn best in a setting that is caring and structured. Our teachers are certified, innovative, and passionate about their students and learning. Our academic program is accountable and effective, refined over the past 40+ years and delivered in a Christ-centered environment. Our facilities are modern, well-designed, and inspiring, rising from the fields on 65 acres at the end of Hwy #410 on the edge of Caledon."

  • University-educated and certified faculty
  • Multiple computer labs
  • Long tradition of academic and athletic excellence
  • Excellent instrumental music and visual arts
  • Entrance exam required for admission
  • Transportation available

What do you do differently and uniquely well?

"Our Christian faith inspires and underlies our commitment to excellence.
We plan, teach, assess, communicate, and reflect with excellence because we are motivated to represent Christ well to our students.
Our teachers are our greatest strength; engaged, life-long learners themselves, they are positive, encouraging, and love their vocation! They collaborate excitedly with one another, dialogue incessantly about learning, and model collegial and inspiring relationship for our students."

To your knowledge, why do families choose your school over others?

"Families share that they choose our school for:
- a caring, Christian, environment;
- a high academic standard and track-record of success at the post-secondary level;
- a structured, safe, and encouraging atmosphere;
- an administration that is engaged and active in resolving discipline issues promptly and effectively;
- teachers that are committed to their child’s flourishing beyond just academics."

What aspect of your school is underappreciated?

"The fact that our teaching staff all share a fairly unified Christian worldview is sometimes undervalued, though it provides the foundation of our communal teaching practice. This worldview emphasizes the student as a thoroughly-loved child or God, capable of growth and change and development, and rich with God-given potential. This is the common lens through which each of our teachers see each student, and a truth to which they are held accountable in their decision-making."

What might families find surprising about your school?

"Families will be pleased to discover the value of having a cross-divisional school that goes from JK all the way up to Grade 12. Although separated into different wings of the school, students in various divisions will share the same frame of reference and there is a sense of security in that. Curricular and extra-curricular cross-divisional activities create a wonderful familial rapport among students, staff, parents, and even grandparents."

Message from school leadership

Andy Cabral, Principal
M.A., B. Ed., OCT, PQP

For those who don’t know him already, here are some things you should know about our Principal, Andy Cabral.

Firstly, you should know he’s got all that ‘academic’ stuff you’d expect!  He completed his first degree and teacher-training program at McGill University (Montreal).  His Master’s Degree from Middlebury College (USA) also included graduate courses taken on site at Lincoln College, Oxford University (UK).  He is a member of the Ontario College of Teachers and did his Principal’s Qualification Program at York University (Toronto).

Secondly, he’s got experience!  He’s been teaching since 1996 and has experience in public and private schools, both near and as far away as Seoul, South Korea!  He’s been a teacher at BCS since 2001 and led the High School division as the Vice-Principal prior to becoming our Principal.

Thirdly, he’s thoroughly invested in BCS!   With his wife Annette, a long-time teacher in the Junior High, and 4 kids enrolled at BCS this year from SK up to grade 10, Mr. Cabral is a major stakeholder in this place!

Finally, you should know he has a heart for God and for helping kids of all ages develop a relationship with Him through Christ.  His favourite verse is Matthew 5:16—  “Let your light so shine before others, that they may see your good works and glorify the Father in heaven.”

Make sure to take the chance to introduce yourself, any time you see him around the school. You may find him in the office, coaching a sports team, leading a Mission trip, directing traffic, or simply chatting with our students!
