Stories are powerful... They are the fabric of society and one of the most powerful methods of education. Jesus taught through parables and lived the greatest story of all. Storytelling evokes emotion, encourages connection and invites the listener to engage in a deeper way to discover their story within the one being shared. At Kelowna Christian School, we believe each moment and learning experience provides the opportunity to help our students discover their own unique and meaningful story. Most importantly, their place in God’s story.
Our desire is to partner with parents to create a safe, challenging and creative environment at KCS to inspire students to develop and find their story. A community that strengthens the heart, mind and soul of students to discover his or her true potential and impact on the local and global communities. Students that are not only leaders of the next generation, but also caring servants in His kingdom through authentic, relationship with Jesus Christ.
Kelowna Christian School provides transformative, excellent education that builds a strong foundation of identity, knowledge, purpose and Christ-like character. We are passionate about education that equips and inspires students to be disciples who are world changers that love and serve God and others.

STEP 4 - INTERVIEW
Once your application is complete, the school principal will meet with your family. Typically this process is used to assess the fit between the family and school, as well as identify and discuss any potential barriers or issues related to acceptance.
STEP 5 - ACCEPTANCE + PLACEMENT
A decision regarding acceptance is communicated within several days of the interview. Upon acceptance, your family will complete a KCS Enrollment Form and Contract with the Admissions Office. This form will request more family, medical and financial information that we require for enrollment and safety procedures. Class placement decisions are usually made during the summer; however, with current year applications (if space permits) decisions are made at the same time as acceptance.
