The mission of Kelowna Christian School is to educate, equip, and inspire our school community to become disciples of Jesus who love and serve God and others.
Our vision declares that we seek to be a Christ-like community passionately transforming our world.
As a school we are devoted to expressing these commitments - not only through the education we provide - but also through the things we value and espouse.
At KCS we take the Bible seriously. As the inspired Word of God, it’s the foundation of everything we do as a school - from our approach to education to relationships and discipline.
We are a community committed to prayer. It’s a source of strength and an acknowledgement that we are utterly dependent on God and His purposes. "Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God." - Philippians 4:6 NIV
Confronted with a rapidly changing world, we believe students and staff must be creative and flexible in their approach to changing and new challenges.
We don’t just mean high test scores. We mean students should strive to do well, and through encouragement and engagement achieve their personal best in a process of continuous improvement. Excellence at KCS means we push ourselves and our students to keep getting better using our best effort.
True excellence requires an ongoing effort - perseverance and grit. A willingness to accept failure and use it as a springboard for continued effort. As a Christian school we acknowledge and want to develop the inclination to trust God to be there in the hard times.
Acting with integrity means a willingness to make the right call even when no one sees it or whether it comes with a personal cost.
