Stories are powerful. They are the fabric of society and one of the most fundamental 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. Learn more about our Design Principles for Teaching & Learning here.
Our desire is to partner with parents to create a safe, challenging and creative environment to inspire students to develop and find their stories. A community that strengthens the heart, soul and mind of students to discover their 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 presents life-changing education that provides a strong foundation of identity, knowledge, purpose and Christ-like character for world-changing students. Our Vision, Mission, Values help provide more information on who we are.
An important part of our school's story is our history of marrying two schools from different traditions - Evangel Academy and Kelowna Christian School. From our earliest days, we have tried to reflect and honour what is probably best described as an intentional broadly evangelical tradition. When drafting a Statement of Faith, for instance, we sought to reflect the core and essential beliefs that unite us, while allowing for flexibility where different denominations and traditions differ.
