Our focus at Linden is to provide a God-honouring educational experience for students from Kindergarten through Grade 12.

  • We deliver the provincial curriculum and so much more as our students are motivated to explore and excel in the classroom. We are a young school, but our graduates are already doing exceptional things in their careers.
  • We have exceptional teachers who mentor, guide, and nurture your child.
  • Our walls are full of banners and pennants that represent the success we’ve enjoyed in athletics. Through sports, we build character and community. We also build champions.
  • We help our students discover and nurture their artistic talents. Our music students compete successfully and perform frequently as their skills grow.
  • Our students look beyond themselves. Through chapel and community service, students are able to embrace scriptural truth and seek to make a difference in the world.

LCS-img_057STEP 2: STATEMENT OF FAITH

Please read the Linden Christian School Statement of Faith and sign the back of the application form. Because biblical teaching from a Christ-centred worldview is an integral part of a student’s education at LCS, each parent must read the Statement of Faith. Both parental signatures are required. Biblical teaching is integrated with the curriculum in a significant way and your signature(s) indicate your agreement to have your child learn these articles of faith on a daily basis.

STEP 3: INTERVIEW

Once an application has been submitted in its entirety, you will be contacted for an interview with either the Principal or Vice-Principal. Both parents should accompany the student for the interview. Questions are asked to determine the educational needs of your child, as well as spiritual and social aspects of your child’s education.

MY, SYSTEP 4: DECISION

Following the interview, the decision will be conveyed to the family. If LCS is able to provide placement for your child, a letter of acceptance and registration package will follow.

STEP 5: REGISTRATION

The registration package contains a Registration Form and a tuition invoice. Completed paperwork should be submitted to the Registrar’s Office with the following:

  • $75 registration fee (per child)
  • $300 capital fee (per family)
  • 10 percent of the annual tuition fees
  • Balance of annual tuition in pre-arranged format, either post-dated cheques or pre-authorized payment consent

International Students

LCS-img_059Linden Christian School offers international students the opportunity to participate in a Canadian educational experience, supported by a strong EAL program. New Canadians that still require language support in their school experience also benefit from this program.

Linden has EAL teachers that are able to adapt curriculum goals and objectives to facilitate English language learning and transition to regular high school programming. Our teachers attend classes with students where necessary, assist with research and editing writing assignments, teach classroom curriculum as needed, and provide general support in adjusting to Canadian schooling. Participants work toward developing interpersonal communication skills, cognitive academic language proficiency, and subject-area knowledge, all of which help our students achieve success in regular Senior Years classrooms.

Acceptance of international and/or non-resident students is limited, and is based on the school’s capacity to maintain an effective EAL program.

Tuition Rate Adjustments – International Students

Any change in international or non-resident status during the course of the school year in which the student has currently registered, will not affect the tuition rate due as outlined in the original Tuition and Registration invoice. Tuition fees will not be adjusted to reflect any change from international or non-resident status during the course of the current school year.

Upon providing supporting documents evidencing a change, the student may apply for subsequent years at the standard tuition rate applicable to resident students. However, if our EAL Resource Department determines the student must continue to participate in the EAL Program, there will be an additional fee for EAL services, over and above the resident student rate. Tuition rates may be adjusted to resident student rates upon meeting the following criteria:

  1. Change of status to Permanent Resident
  2. Completion of EAL Program based on recommendation from EAL Resources


Returning Students

Re-registration for students currently enrolled at Linden Christian School takes place in February. Re-registration reserves the student’s place in the school for the following academic year.
EY
Re-Registration – Canadian Students

The re-registration fee of $50 per student, accompanied by the capital fee of $300 and 10 percent of the tuition as a financial commitment toward tuition for the following year, reserves the student’s place in the school. The re-registration fee, capital fee and 10 percent payment are non-refundable.

Re-Registration – International Students

The re-registration fee is $50 per student. Full re-registration fees and 10 percent of total tuition are to be paid immediately upon re-registration and are non-refundable. The capital fee of $300 per family, together with the balance of tuition, are to be paid in full by June 1 (subject to the withdrawal and refund policies).

If acceptance occurs after June 1, the full tuition, full registration/re-registration fees and capital fee of $300 are to be paid immediately upon acceptance. Compliance with this payment plan confirms registration and placement in grade for which student applied. Linden Christian School is unable to “hold” grade spots for students that have not completed the full re-registration requirements by the specified deadline.

 


Statement of Faith

What makes education “Christian” at Linden Christian School is our Christ-centered, biblical perspective. There are classes scheduled for the teaching of biblical content. In addition, biblical principles are integrated across the curricula and in the general life of the school. A biblical perspective is communicated in an integrative way in discussions, learning activities, perspectives, and social interactions. For this reason, it is important that parents are aware of the particular doctrinal perspective reflected at Linden Christian School.

The Word of God
We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, fully inspired and without error as to fact as well as purpose in the original manuscripts, written under inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and that it has supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

The Trinity
We believe that there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three Persons, that these are equal in every Divine perfection, and that they execute distinct but harmonious offices in the work of creation, providence and redemption.

God the Father
We believe in God the Father, an infinite, personal Spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love. We believe that He concerns Himself mercifully in the lives of people, that He hears and answers prayer, and that He saves from sin and spiritual death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.

Jesus Christ
We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles and teachings. We believe in His substitutionary death for the sins of all people, His bodily resurrection for the empowering of the new life for all who believe, His ascension into Heaven, His perpetual intercession for His people, and His personal, visible return to earth. We believe that He was truly God and perfectly Human.

Holy Spirit
We believe in the Holy Spirit who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify and empower all who believe in Jesus Christ. We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Christ, and that He is an abiding helper, teacher and guide. We believe that He is God.

Sin
We believe that sin is falling short of the holiness and perfection of God; that it is rebellion against God. We believe that every person is a sinner by nature and by choice and is, therefore, under condemnation to spiritual death and eternal separation from God; that every person is in need of a Saviour from sin. We believe that Satan is a real entity who is attempting to lead mankind to further rebellion against God.

Regeneration
We believe that the Holy Spirit regenerates those who trust in Jesus Christ as Saviour. We believe that they become a new creation in Christ Jesus. We believe that their faith in Christ gives them eternal life and the confidence of a place in heaven.

Christian Life
We believe that those who trust Christ as Saviour reveal God’s grace in their lives as they seek to live their lives according to God’s will as revealed in scripture. This is a response of love to God in view of His mercy and grace. Our acceptance with God depends on God’s gift of salvation through Christ rather than our own efforts to please Him.
