How Jehovah Jireh Christian School sees itself


The school administration answered our questions

Who are you, as a school?

"Jehovah Jireh Christian School provides students with a dynamic education and individual attention that encourages them to work independently and grow in godly character. JJCS comes alongside parents to nurture children in God's ways. We use the Accelerated Christian Education curriculum plus additional enrichment in Literature, Science, and Math, and have other programs for French, Music, Art, and Swimming. Its scenic property includes a soccer field, basketball, and playground as part of its many facilities."

  • Students learn French with the Rosetta Stone Educational Program.
  • Students can receive individual piano lessons taught by a highly qualified music teacher.
  • Students receive two units of Swimming Lessons in our on-site indoor swimming pool.

What do you do differently and uniquely well?

"Because of the low ratio of students to teacher at JJCS, students receive immediate and individual instruction to assist continual learning. Students also participate in small group learning. We also have great Pastoral leadership that also cares for the emotional and spiritual well-being of each student."

What tradeoffs has your school made to serve families in this way?

"Due to Jehovah Jireh Christian School's strong Christian moral values, JJCS will not teach the current Ontario Sexual Education. This means that JJCS does not offer credits toward the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) and is registered as a non-inspected private school. Students that finish High School at JJCS will apply to post-secondary school as home schooled students."

What key junctures in your school's history have most shaped its present?

"JJCS opened up in September 2017. In 2019 we had our first Junior Kindergarten class and also had two international students. Unfortunately, we had to close the school in the winter of 2020 as all schools had to due to Covid-19. However, our students were blessed to be able to take their curriculum home and successfully complete their school year. In 2020/2021 our students also had a successful year despite the interruptions of Covid-19. The ACE curriculum is set up in a way that allows the student to do their work at home when necessary."

What type of student is a good fit for your school?

"Students that need more individual help academically will benefit from JJCS' small class sizes. Parents that are concerned about their children being subjected to the current Ontario Sexual Education will also benefit from JJCS' biblical and moral views. Parents can rest knowing that they are the ones who are making the decisions for their children and not the government. At JJCS their children are protected from the inappropriate behaviours that public schools are promoting."

Under what conditions would you advise a family against choosing your school?

"JJCS will not be suitable for families who do not share the Christian faith and values as the students will be exposed daily to the Bible and memorizing Scripture as part of their education. We also have morning devotions and weekly chapel times where we sing Christian songs and learn from the Bible.

Even though we do have weekly gym activities and offer Swimming Lessons two units per school year, we do not offer team sports."

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

"Parents choose JJCS because of our Christian core values and how we integrate them into the students learning experience. Not only are the children taught from a Christian worldview, but they also are challenged to grow in their faith and to experience a deeper relationship with their Saviour the Lord Jesus Christ. The character-building program that is blended into the curriculum is practical and inspires the children to be Christ-like.

The social environment of JJCS is a very loving and caring that thrives on the desire to be Christ-like in every aspect.

Students at JJCS also receive more one on one instruction which helps them to master what they are learning."

How would you characterize your school's image amongst the public?

"JJCS has strong Christian values where each student is given individual attention to meet their academic needs as well as their social and spiritual development. JJCS cultivates and encourages a strong sense of community where students learn to love, honour, and respect their peers and those in authority. JJCS provides a nurturing learning environment where students are challenged to thrive academically but also to develop their faith and character."

What aspect of your school is underappreciated?

"Teaching from a biblical worldview is important to JJCS. Students are equipped with sound teaching that gives them the tools they need to support their Christian faith which many times is questioned by the humanistic worldview that is prevalent in society. Students at JJCS will not only be taught from a biblical worldview, but will learn how to defend their faith with scientific facts from biblical creationists and scientists.

Presently JJCS does not have a large number of students and sometimes parents are concerned that this is detrimental to the social life of their children. Making friends is important in children's lives, however students at JJCS know that they belong and are accepted for who they are which is foundational to the identity and stability of a child's well-being. Confidence and self-worth come from knowing you are loved and accepted. Students at JJCS learn to treat their peers as family and to prefer one another."

What might families find surprising about your school?

"The staff of JJCS are committed to creating a learning environment that cultivates a love for learning by providing hands-on experiences that makes learning fun. Staff go the extra mile to help students learn and be successful.

JJCS has a reward system where students earn merit money which they save and then get to spend at a "merit store"."

What improvements or changes has your school made recently?

"This past year we built up our school library with novels, resource books, and magazines for the students to read in their free time. We also provided further enrichment in creative writing and literature."

How will your school change in the next 5 years?

"Our students will be entering their high school years and so we will be preparing them for post-secondary education. The Accelerated Christian Education has curriculum all the way up to grade 12 and some courses are also offered online and so we will start making use of those courses online. As we help each student prepare their academic projection we will make the necessary changes to make sure that they each get the courses they need to be prepared for their course of study at post-secondary school of choice."
