Surrey Christian School is seeking a Christ-like, visionary, and student-centered leader to provide instructional leadership and school management for our 500-student Fleetwood campus. Our mission statement: Educating for wholeness by engaging God’s world in the servant way of Jesus shapes everything we do. Surrey Christian School is a growing school community with a strong staff and faculty dedicated to student learning that inspires students to become fully alive in God’s story. We are located in North Surrey, an ethnically diverse urban and suburban community just outside of Vancouver. There are over 150 different churches represented in Surrey Christian School, a non-denominational Christian school with an open enrolment policy governed by a 12 member board of directors representing the Surrey Christian School Society membership. Surrey Christian School was founded on a Reformed worldview of Christianity and it is that distinct perspective that shapes our vision. Our confidence in this particular vision of God working in our world has inspired us to open our enrolment to families from other faiths.
