    King’s Christian School (KCS) is a thriving independent school averaging 350 Pre-K to grade 12 students. KCS is located in Salmon Arm, BC, the heart of the beautiful Shuswap.

    September 2023 marks 46 years of God’s faithfulness to King’s Christian School, and we are excited for the opportunity to welcome a new principal who is passionate about quality Christ-centred education. KCS has flourished over the years thanks to God’s continued blessings and the dedication of committed families. We currently serve approximately 180 families representing over a dozen local churches.

    Our prayerful hope is to find a new leader who is eager to help us fulfil our vision:

    King’s Christian School seeks to honour God by preparing Christian leaders of tomorrow to serve the Lord Jesus Christ.
