Education for Life

Additional Programs

Cambridge Christian School provides an outstanding array of activities and programming that help students develop their gifts and talents while building community in small and large ways.Their education goes beyond the doors of the classroom!

Athletics: In addition to regular Physical Education classes, Cambridge Christian School fields sports teams for Cross-Country running, soccer, volleyball, basketball, hockey, baseball, and track and field. Our school competes against other Christian schools in the area. All classes from SK to Grade 8 have several sessions of skating at a local arena in the month of December.

Battle of the Books: Students in the Junior and Intermediate grades, after having read the assigned number of books, compete against other Christian schools.

Class Trips: Trips are tied in with our curriculum and have included The Guelph Arboretum, Westfield Heritage Village, The ROM, the apple orchard, Police Safety Village, Mountsberg Conservation Area, The Warplane Museum, Fort George, Brock’s Monument and the Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory. Our overnight trips are for the Intermediate classes with Grade 7 camping at Fair Glen and Grade 8 travelling to Ottawa and Montreal.

Musical and Drama Performances: We have two performances a year; the Christmas program and Spring Musical where students are given the opportunity to share their gifts in drama and singing.

Music Lessons: Qualified teachers teach lessons in guitar, piano, and voice during the school hours for an additional fee.

Reading Buddies: Older students are paired with younger students to spend time reading, working on projects and helping with computers.

School Families: Every year the students are divided into groups called families and several times throughout the year they meet for different activities. This allows the students to build cross-grade relationships and the older students have an opportunity to develop leadership skills.

Service Projects: Students participate in various service projects which have included singing in retirement homes, spring clean-up, leaf raking, baking for our community helpers, and volunteering at the Ontario Christian Gleaners facility.

Special Education: Cambridge Christian School recognizes the diverse needs of students and provides support through our Resource Department and classroom accommodations. We strive to meet the needs of as many students as possible who have Individual Education Plans.

 

Testimonial 3

For me, Cambridge Christian School has been an extremely positive experience and has helped me to grow in many ways. From as young as I can remember I was memorizing Bible verses, studying God's Word, and learning and thinking about a Christian perspective in every subject. We were challenged to apply what we learned from scripture to our everyday lives. I learned that God is everywhere from Ancient Greece, to geographic landmarks, from government to science, to mathematics, music, and physical education. I am thankful for committed, godly teachers who encouraged me and loved me, allowing me to grow in my relationship with Christ.
