Principal's Message

Welcome to Millwoods Christian School! We are pleased you chose to visit our website to find out a little more about who we are.

We are proud to be associated with Edmonton Public Schools. We are considered an Alternative program and offer education from a Christian perspective to students from kindergarten to grade 12.  Edmonton Public Schools is committed to choice in education and because of this we are able to offer this type of schooling for parents who desire a fully integrated Christian program.

We believe our place in God’s world is one of special privilege and responsibility. Made in God’s image, we human beings are called to responsible stewardship: loving others and ourselves, and developing and preserving the resources of creation.  It is within this broad framework of understanding ourselves in relationship to God, to others and His creative genius that we are able to take our place in society as responsible citizens, with academic and spiritual integrity. 

We are also committed to excellence in all we do. We believe in rigour in academics and work collaboratively to ensure the highest level of educational excellence for all students. We follow the Alberta Education Curriculum and simultaneously weave Christian principles throughout all of our courses. We offer daily devotions for students and have chapel for each division once per week. We also are able to teach from locally developed Christian courses approved by Alberta Education for our secondary students.

Our District focus hinges upon the four pillars of Equity, Accountability, Collaboration and Integrity. It is our desire to pragmatically represent these in all we do as a school community.  

Be blessed, Daniel Vandermeer


History

Millwoods Christian School has been serving the community since 1978. The school opened as an independent school under the direction of Calvary Community Church, a non-denominational church in south Edmonton. Over the years the school population steadily increased as more and more parents began to choose Christian education for their children. In 2000, the school entered into an agreement with the Edmonton Public School Board, and now operates as an alternative program with EPSB. Today, the Edmonton Public School Board offers programming that meets the goals of the alternative Christian program.


Millwoods Christian School Society

The Millwoods Christian School Society was established to look after the needs of Millwoods Christian School. As part of legal agreement with EPSB, the MCS Society is responsible for the provision and maintenance of school facilities. More importantly, the society safeguards the school vision and supports Christian programming offered at MCS. School fees collected by MCSS and lease payments from EPSB allow the society to meet these obligations.
