Welcome to Woodstock Christian School. This handbook is meant to provide you with information related to our WCS community, programs, and procedures. Whether you are new to the school, or have been at WCS for a while, I hope that you will find what you are looking for as you read through the following pages. This handbook is one of the ways you can obtain information about Woodstock Christian School. Alternatively, you could talk to people already connected to WCS, check out our website www.woodstockchristian.ca , our Facebook page, or come by and visit us. We would be happy to show you around, discuss our program with you, and answer any questions you may have.
Our program is aligned with the guidelines and standards set by the Ontario Ministry of Education. However, the program is distinct from publicly funded schools in its orientation and perspective. As a member of EDVANCE (formerly, the Ontario Alliance of Christian Schools), we emphasize teaching from Christian worldview and a Biblical perspective. Our intention is to provide students with the knowledge, ideas and skills necessary to help them discern how to best serve God and others with integrity, wisdom, and joy.
Woodstock Christian School has a team of dedicated and professional staff. Teachers are qualified in the field of education, committed to their work and to the Lord. Staff strive to provide a rigorous, Christ-centered education in a caring environment, partnering with home and church in teachings and values. Together, we want to see your children learn; set goals, persevere, achieve, and grow academically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually. Our goal is for your children to reach their God-given potential, and to love learning at WCS.
This year at WCS, our school-wide theme is “HONOUR ONE ANOTHER” with the key verse found in Romans 12:10 (NIV), Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. To honour someone above yourself is a difficult challenge, and one that we can’t do without God’s help. Through conversation, reflection, and intentional moments of instruction through chapels and class devotions, our prayer is that our whole WCS community will grow in it’s ability to honour one another.
As we begin the 2022-2023 school year, we trust that in "FAITH. LEARNING. COMMUNITY", God will continue to work out His plans for us. We are thankful that you are part of the WCS community. I pray that the students of WCS will love coming to school this year, and that our program will help them succeed as learners, that they might discover the unique gifts God has blessed them with, and be able to use them to His glory.
Mr. Michael Vander Kooi, Principal
