Posted on April 28, 2022

Surrey Christian School is a PreK-12 school of over 1,300 students approximately 30 minutes outside of Vancouver. 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 community with a strong staff and faculty dedicated to student learning that inspires students to become fully alive in God’s story. We strive to be a ‘people of try’ in our approach to pedagogical innovation and improving student learning.

There are over 150 different churches represented in Surrey Christian School, a non-denominational Christian school with an open enrollment policy governed by a 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 vision of God working in our world has inspired us to open our enrollment to families from other faiths.
