ABOUT KAMLOOPS CHRISTIAN SCHOOL
Kamloops Christian School was founded in 1985 as six Kamloops churches (Calvary Community Church, Evangelical Free Church, Full Gospel Tabernacle, Gateway City Church, Sahali Fellowship, and Southwest Community Church) came together to bring Christian education to the Kamloops area. A Board of Directors was put together (Kamloops Christian School Association), accreditation was finalized, and classes began. For the first few years, KCS started as a K-9 school and rented space in the Kamloops Indian Band Residential School, later moving to Kamloops Alliance Church, and eventually purchasing the then unused North Kamloops Elementary School located on Willow Avenue (now Library Square). Finally, in 2003, an agreement was made between KCSA and the City of Kamloops to trade Willow Campus for the Cottonwood Center for $1. KCS has been operating out of Cottonwood Center ever since, and has expanded to having an Early Childhood Education Center, business rental space, and classes from Kindergarten to Grade 12. The future is bright for KCS because we know the Lord is in it. As a past Chairman of KCSA board once said: “It is God’s school. His name is on the building”.
Kamloops Christian School offers an amazing learning environment for your children. We offer a Christ-centred, Bible based education in a friendly, family-like environment.
KCS not only meets the BC curriculum mandates for each grade and subject area, but works to extend the learning of our students by focusing on communication, critical thinking, collaboration, creativity, while continually integrating a biblical perspective into the learning. We strive to teach our students to be able to understand and contextualize a biblical worldview and to lead and demonstrate moral and healthy convictions and habits of life. In essence, we strive to teach the whole student (mind, body, spirit).
Our teachers are talented, experienced, qualified educators who understand not only best practices for teaching students, but also understand the power of relationship and how important that is when it comes to educating students.
It would be my honour to be able to show and discuss to anyone who is interested what KCS can offer. KCS has 30 years of high quality education behind it and we are all very excited about what we can accomplish moving forward.
