Bearspaw Christian School’s campus occupies an incredible 39 acres of land in Calgary’s northwest. This land was annexed by the City of Calgary from the Municipal District of Rockyview County in 2008, under the M.D. Rockyview Inter-Municipal Development Policy. Founded on this site in 1998, the campus continues to evolve and expand to meet our growing student population.
We are located at 15001 – 69 Street NW, Calgary, just off 144 Avenue NW, and are easily accessible from Royal Oak, Nolan Hill, Sage Hill, Beacon Hill, Evanston and Symons Valley.
Bearspaw Christian School’s Main Building is home to BCS Elementary, and part of BCS Secondary. The building itself consists of 14 classrooms, augmented by modular classrooms connected by breezeways. The Main Building features learning spaces with natural lighting, one of two gymnasiums on our campus (Mross Gymnasium), our main office, a library, science labs, a music/band room and a full kitchen.
Bearspaw Christian School opened its 28,000 square foot Multi-Purpose Facility in February 2011. This Multi-Purpose Facility was built LEED certified, and includes a gymnasium, student fitness centre and several classrooms used by BCS Secondary and BCS @Home.
Bearspaw Christian School is currently planning for Phase II of its Capital Campaign – “Creating Spaces.” We are in the preliminary stages of working with our architects to define these spaces/write our business plans.
We anticipate Phase II will add roughly 20 thousand sq ft including 8 to 10 new classrooms. This will provide space for another 200 students. We expect this new space will enable us to expand the services we offer families to include their preschool children, plus help them with their child care needs. Additionally, we plan to use some of the space for new classrooms making room for growth in our grade school population.
