Recognized as a top school in both Calgary and the province, BCS provides an exceptional junior and senior high school experience for students in grades 7-12. In addition to a rich academic program, BCS offers meaningful opportunities for students to express and grow in their giftings in athletics, the arts, leadership, and service to their community. Infused into all activities is a focus on knowing, loving, and following Christ together.
In BCS Secondary
Students can get an academic experience anywhere; at BCS, we ground formal education within the context of God-honouring relationships that help students grow spiritually as well as scholastically. We help them grapple with the tough questions of life in order to develop a personal faith that effectively navigates the culture around them. Through weekly chapel and worship, a pertinent Bible curriculum, small groups, service opportunities, and staff mentoring, we encourage students to experience and enjoy God, and ultimately embrace a living and vibrant faith both now and for the rest of their lives.
BCS follows the Province of Alberta Program of Studies, interpreted from a Christian perspective. In addition to the Alberta Education program, BCS offers a Bible curriculum at each grade level. Our teachers partner with students and their families to achieve academic excellence for the glory of God.
Our students perform far above the provincial average on Provincial Achievement Tests and Diploma Exams as well as in day-to-day coursework. Our teachers and administrators continue to look for ways to engage students deeply in learning.
We use technology at BCS to enhance teaching and learning, to increase student engagement, and to prepare students for the future. Through our technology classes and our “bring your own device” initiative, students are equipped to be effective and responsible digital citizens.

About BCS Secondary
In addition to the standard courses mandated by Alberta Education (mathematics, science, social studies, English language arts, physical education and health), BCS Secondary also prepares students by running Social and Academic Support courses in Junior High, technology courses in grades 7-10, and Bible courses in all of Secondary.
BCS Junior High offers a range of engaging optional classes that give students a chance to develop skills and have experiences that cater to their unique interests and supplement their curriculum-based learning. Senior High optional classes are designed so that students can advance their skills and knowledge in a particular area, giving them a taste of particular post-secondary and career paths.
Independent Learning Program
BCS has partnered with Alberta Distance Learning Centre (ADLC) to offer a wide variety of online courses to our Senior High students in order to allow them to work at a level or pace where they will be most successful, or to pursue learning interests not currently facilitated in our on-campus classes.
Although students are now taking on more responsibility for their school experience, BCS knows how crucial it is to empower parents to stay engaged in their child’s learning.
