KCS Design Principles for Teaching and Learning
Kelowna Christian exists to educate and inspire our students so that they can be effective, active and engaged servants of Jesus - both in their life at school and in their lives beyond school.
How does our mission meet the classroom and the broader educational life of the school? The KCS Design Principles for Teaching and Learning are an attempt to state simply and clearly some ideas that we believe will facilitate missionally centred educational excellence. As Christian Educators, these are things we strive for in our classrooms and throughout our school.

TEACHING FOR TRANSFORMATION
Ultimately our mission statement affirms that we are called to grow and equip disciples of Jesus. This calls us to educate both the mind and heart in ways that are transformative. Teaching for transformation of the mind compels us to present biblical truths in ways that weave throughout all learning. Teaching for transformation of the heart compels us to create and value educational experiences where students can see and respond to God’s transformational call on themselves, others, and His world.
