Our Academic Program

Our school follows curriculum guidelines that meet the goals of Christian education as outlined by our Board of Directors and COO.  

 

We strive to meet and surpass ministry and government specifications and follow much of the provincial curriculum.

 

We supplement our course of studies with curriculum resources and textbooks that come from Christian Schools International (CSI), and the Ontario Alliance of Christian Schools (OACS).  

 

Our curriculum encompasses studies in Bible, Mathematics, Language Arts, French, Music, Art, Physical Education, Science, History and Geography.

 

Students with special needs enjoy the individual or small group support of our Resource Department facilitating specific remedial needs.

 

The spectrum of our curriculum encourages the use of a variety of teaching styles: teacher directed, individual research, small group, project-based and computer-assisted learning.

 

The staff of Community Christian School continually reviews specific areas of curriculum under the supervision of the COO. New teaching methods, publications and support services are examined and goals are set to maximize student learning.  Staff are encouraged to participate in personal and professional development opportunities.  

 

Our school year is divided into 3 terms. Individual student report cards are prepared at the end of each term and distributed to parents via the students. Parent-Teacher Conferences are scheduled 2 times each year, but teachers are available for conferences whenever there is a need.

 

Students in grades 1 to 8 participate in "Measure of Academic Progress (MAP)"  by the Northwest Evaluation Association™ (NWEA™) three times per year.
