Why BCS?

Why BCS?


We help students achieve personal academic excellence...

Bearspaw Christian School believes that every student is capable of personal academic excellence, because following Christ transforms us and requires us to strive towards excellence in everything we do.  We challenge the C student to become a B student, and the A student to become an A+.   Great schools don't limit enrollment to just the gifted.  Great schools take regular kids and create exceptional students.

Our team of strong and dedicated principals and teachers facilitate exceptional student performance.  Our success formula views Alberta Curriculum as a starting point to build from, and we believe in the importance of homework and hard work.  This prepares students for today's working realities, and post-secondary education.  

We help students realize Christ-like character…

The world is a rapidly changing place, not the predictable safe place it once was.  At the same time, the world has never been more open to people committed and equipped to expanding God's work.  Our students need preparation not protection.  Our students need to be taught how to think, not what to think.  Our students need to learn to ask the right questions, not memorize the right answers.  Christian education needs to change to support today’s realities.

Bearspaw Christian School is all about teaching minds, reaching hearts and transforming our world.  We want to graduate history-making-world-changers.  Today's student wants a real relationship with Christ.  In unprecedented numbers they're rejecting lukewarm North-American Christianity, demanding faith authenticity.

What our students need and seek is genuine discipleship.  To address this need, we hired one of North America's leading experts in youth spiritual development to build our discipleship program.  It's grade-specific and integrated in every subject.  Bottom-line - real discipleship equals a changed life.

We have fantastic schools...

Bearspaw Christian School's Elementary division is busting at the seams!  We believe in the importance of investing heavily in students right from the beginning.  With some of our most experienced teaching staff, a high calibre resource team, and intentional opportunities for families to be a part of this vibrant community,  BCS Elementary is the place to be!

Walk the halls any day and you'll see students at their best.  Our Elementary Teachers know how to build personal relationships with each child, helping them learn all about the world around them while building a strong foundation of core learning competencies.  Instilling a passion for Jesus and a desire to know Him and the world He created gives BCS Elementary Students a firm foundation for whatever their future holds.

Academics is one part of our success story, but more importantly at the heart of our story is an unwavering commitment towards discipleship-based education and vibrant community.  BCS' Elementary School is giving students opportunities to authentically grow in their faith in a safe and caring community environment built between the teacher, the parents, and the local church.

BCS Elementary - Starting Things Off Right!

Bearspaw Christian School's Secondary division is where faith gets put into action.  We believe that when we put Christ first in everything we do, personal excellence follows.  If you are looking for a Secondary School to shelter your student from the realities of the world, you're not going to find it at BCS Secondary!  We are preparing students to thrive academically, spiritually and relationally so that when they graduate, they leave our school as History-Making-World-Changers.

Discipleship is at the core of everything we do at BCS Secondary.  Our students play an active role in leading ministries at the school.  Our teachers hold our students to some of the highest academic standards in the Province, but they also hold our students to equally high standards in their faith.  This only happens through relationship and vibrant community.

We're serious about spiritual growth, and bible classes and chapel can only ever be a starting point.  Our graduates are leaving to go out and enter all walks of life, not only highly equipped to excel in their careers, but more importantly grounded firmly in their faith and ready to give an answer for what they believe.  Academic success is important, but so is having every BCS Secondary graduate leave with a stronger personal relationship with Christ.  We're serious about personal excellence in every area.

BCS Secondary - Become A History-Making-World-Changer!
