Who Are We?
Drayton Christian School is a publicly funded alternative program of Wild Rose School Division. We are a non-denominational Christian School whose staff members and students come from a variety of churches and denominations. All staff members that work at D.C.S. support the educational creed as outlined by the D.C.S.S. (our parent council), are active in a church fellowship, and practice a Christian Lifestyle. D.C.S. teaches the Alberta curriculum from a Christian perspective, integrating the Bible into all levels and areas of instruction. All students in D.C.S. participate in Bible classes throughout the week, in addition to the integration of the teaching of the Bible within all subject areas. Within the classrooms, the students participate in daily devotions and prayer. Weekly chapels are held involving students based on grade level. Students from ECS to Grade 2, Grades 3 to 6, and Grades 7 to 9 meet as a group each week to share in prayer, song and discussions regarding the Bible's teachings and living as a Christian person. As well as divisional chapels, a monthly all school chapel is held.
D.C.S. was founded as a private school in 1993. For the 1994-95 school year, Drayton Christian School moved to its present location, sharing a facility with Eldorado Elementary School, and became a part of the Wild Rose School Division No. 66. Since that time, D.C.S. has continued to grow, providing a quality, Christian education to students from ECS to Grade 9.
