Christ Church Cathedral School offers a wide range of academic and extra-curricular programs for students throughout the year.
For detailed information, please see our Parent / Student Handbook.
Academic Curricular Programs
The curriculum at Christ Church Cathedral School follows the complete range of subjects, programs, and assessment and evaluation procedures outlined by the British Columbia Ministry of Education. It also goes beyond the requirements of the Ministry curriculum in many ways:
Weekly lessons in religious education, with a chapel service every Wednesday in the Cathedral and prayer in assembly and at the beginning of the day to support the spiritual growth of the children.
Specialist Music and French teachers from Kindergarten to grade 8
A strong emphasis on the visual arts, public speaking, and drama
Our childcare and Junior Kindergarten centres are warm, friendly, bright, and bustling with creativity. The JKs (as they are affectionately known) are unique places for children to learn, grow and play. We believe it is important for children to know they are in a safe, supportive and nurturing environment.
The Chorister program is a partnership between the Cathedral School and Christ Church Cathedral (next door). It is modelled on similar programs in the UK, which have successfully enriched young people's lives for hundreds of years.
Apart from giving children an immersive experience in singing, music theory, history, and leadership, choristers also receive a generous tuition discount, subsidized piano lessons timetabled into their school schedule, and pocket money for attending morning rehearsals. Choristers rehearse four mornings per week before school and regularly sing Evensong on Wednesdays after school. There are no weekend commitments.
Children at Lux Mundi do many fun activities, including arts and crafts, swimming, games and trips to community events.
Our qualified team of Lux Mundi staff will care for your children, most of whom are Educational Assistants here at Cathedral School. Our staff have loads of energy and provide a safe and closely supervised program.
