Brant Christian School infuses the Alberta Education curriculum with a Christian worldview. Students will find their faith reflected in all courses across the grade levels, further supplemented by age-appropriate Christian Education courses.
Evidence of the school’s focus on literacy and learning is found in Brant’s record of academic achievement. In 2019, 100% of Grade 6 students at BCS achieved the acceptable standard (passed) in their Language Arts Provincial Achievement Test (PAT). More than 66% of Grade 6 students achieved the provincial standard of excellence on their Science PAT. 100% of Grade 9 students at BCS achieved the acceptable level in both the 2019 Science and Social Studies PATs and an impressive 71% of grade 9 students achieved ‘excellence’ in Science. Students at BCS routinely score higher than the provincial average in every area. See the latest report here.
Students also have access to a standalone science lab. The equipment there lends itself to helping our students explore the unique wetlands and ecosystems surrounding our school. Students receive a well-rounded education from grade 1 through to graduation, in the traditional classroom setting, as well as through many hands-on and experiential learning experiences.
Class sizes in Brant Christian School are small, averaging just 18 to 20 students per class. The class sizes help teachers tailor their instruction to the individual student’s strengths and needs.
Our younger students enjoy a split-class experience for all of their subjects - grade 1/2, grade 3/4, Grade 5/6.
Grades 7-12 are stand-alone classes and all of their core subjects, as well as band, gym and several options classes, are teacher-taught. Other online options are overseen in-house by a facilitator, through Palliser Beyond Borders.
Our student body enjoys many opportunities to interact with one another. Older students are paired with younger ones for reading practice, Family Groups, consisting of students of every age, regularly spend time together doing fun activities and devotions, and the nature of the schedule allows students in different grades to connect on the playground or skating rink at lunch and recess. This is a valuable and unique advantage offered to students at Brant Christian School.
We are pleased to report that in a 2020 survey, 100% of students that responded, declared BCS to be a safe and caring school. Overall, in 2019, 95 percent of teachers, parents and students were satisfied with the quality of education at Brant Christian School.
