Frequently Asked Questions

Who is Edmonton Christian Schools? How are you different from other Public schools?

The Edmonton Society for Christian Education (the Society) stepped out in faith to open Edmonton Christian Schools (ECS) in 1949, and we have been welcoming new families ever since. Today, the Society partners with the Edmonton Public School Board to run Edmonton Christian Schools as an Alternative Program.

We offer a distinctively Christian program that integrates faith, learning, and service into the entire curriculum and program; challenges students to actively play their role in God’s story, and follows the Alberta curriculum and meets or exceeds all Alberta Education requirements.

We focus on educating students for joyful and responsible service to God and society. We believe God gives every child gifts and talents to be used in His service.

I’ve just moved into the Edmonton school district.  How do I enroll my child to start school at ECS immediately?

Many grades are now full for the current school year.  Mid-year admissions are considered on a case by case basis. Please call us if you’d like to enroll after our registration period has ended or for more information. 780.476.6281
