Academic Curricular Programs
The curriculum at Christ Church Cathedral School follows the complete range of subjects, programs, and assessment and evaluation procedures outlined by the British Columbia Ministry of Education. It also goes beyond the requirements of the Ministry curriculum in many ways:
- Weekly lessons in religious education, with a chapel service every Wednesday in the Cathedral and prayer in assembly and at the beginning of the day to support the spiritual growth of the children.
- Specialist Music and French teachers from Kindergarten to grade 8
- A strong emphasis on the visual arts, public speaking, and drama
The school provides a well-rounded curriculum designed to encourage the development of character, imagination, creativity, critical thinking, physical fitness, an open and receptive mind and a spirit of responsibility and service.
Classroom work is supplemented by field trips, regular use of the library, and the development of research skills using texts, computers, and the latest technology.
Teachers give as much individual attention as possible, which is made easier by the small class sizes. They take into account the children’s different learning styles, and students needing some extra assistance are able to work with our Learning Support Team.
The School is continuously working on curriculum development and the teachers keep abreast of best practices by attending regular professional development sessions.
