School Overview

Christian Life School is a Class 1 Independent School that welcomes students from Kindergarten through Grade 9 from a wide variety of churches in the area. As the only faith-based school in Fort St. John, we provide a quality Christ-centred education that promotes the growth of the whole individual. Our small size also allows more meaningful engagement with parents and students on their educational journey.

WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT HERE

Christian Life School is a fantastic place for both new and experienced teachers. We love working with creative teaching ideas, value constant feedback and provide a tight-knit educational family. Class sizes are small – generally between 12 and 18 students – which means less marking and more opportunities to work directly with students. Teachers are also supported by EAs in various settings.

Our teachers have constant opportunities for professional growth, ranging from development days to leading and running school projects that interest the individual gifts and background of the teacher.

One of the great blessings of working at Christian Life School is the opportunity to live out your faith and to allow your faith to be part of your daily teaching.

School community

As a Christian school, concepts are presented from a Biblical point-of-view when appropriate. Morning devotions, Bible classes and chapel are classified as locally developed courses. We attempt to include local pastors as well as ministries that come to our community and Christians willing to share with our students and staff during these times. French is taught in grades five through eight.
