Christian School Moving to Timberlea Public this September

The Fort McMurray Christian School joined the Fort McMurray Public School District in 2006. Home to the only ECDP (Early Childhood Development Program) to grade 9 school in Fort McMurray, this September the school will be moving from its Birchwood YMCA location in Thickwood to Timberlea Public School located on 107 Brett Drive.

Christian School is home to over 220 students. It is affiliated with the Fort McMurray Christian Society.

“We have been at our current location for the last 17 years. As we grow, it was time to move. We will continue to offer dynamic programming such as PEAK Ski and Fitness Academy, Fine Arts, Tech-Trades Academy with a pre-engineering and multimedia stream and so much more,” explains Joe Champion, Principal, Christian School.

The school will be offering PEAK Volleyball program for grades 4-6 in 2017-18.  Additional programming is also being planned that is “unique to a Christian alternative program in the 21st century,” he notes.

“We are free to express our faith at our school, which has students from over 12 different Christian faith communities. Our families are representative of over 30 different nationalities and each year we celebrate this diversity at our annual Spring Arts & Culture Night. We are also excited to move to the Timberlea location as the expanded space will allow us the opportunity to enhance CTF (Career and Technology Foundations) options for our junior high students,” Champion says.
