PROGRAM OVERVIEW

 

The Kamloops Christian School High School Campus implements a comprehensive education to train the whole student. As staff, we seek to develop in our students academic ability, Christ-centered worldview, and a work ethic to strive in all avenues of life.

 

The time table is a combination of both Semester, Linear, and Focused Time courses. Students in Grade 9 take two linear courses of mathematics (numeracy) and language arts (literacy), respectfully. This enables students to develop an invaluable foundation for future subjects and careers.

 

Our focus on project-based learning and our inquiry facilitated instruction gives students the skills they need to think critically, work collaboratively, and to creatively solve problems. Students entering Grade 10 begin the Graduation Program, which starts with a Career Education Project, enabling them to plan for the future, explore various career options, and research the skills and education needed to be successful at moving into such a career after graduation.

 

As well, students in Grade 11 begin a Capstone Project that culminates at the end of Grade 12 with a presentation in a chosen format or method, allowing students to reflect on personal strengths, strategic goals, and to develop a plan for the future.

 

Our students leave school, upon graduation, with a Dogwood Diploma and the necessary skills to be successful in life beyond Secondary School.

 

As a Christian school we endeavor to integrate a Biblical-Christian perspective into all our courses using the Teaching for Transformation framework. Students learn to think critically about the Christian response to social, political, and cultural issues, and visa versa, how the world responds and perceives a Christian response. Our goal is to develop in young people the fruits of the spirit in order to live out the two greatest commandments: to love God and to love our neighbours.

 

In conjunction with this, KCS offers several Biblically based courses, giving students opportunity to express and grow their faith: courses such as Worship, Christian Principles, Ethics, and our newly developed L.E.A.D. Program, that strives to prepare students for leadership and service in multiple venues both international and local.
