Zion Lutheran Christian School is a day school for children in Kindergarten through Grade 7. ZLCS was established in 1999 for all parents, from any background, who wish their child to receive a quality Christian education.
We teach the BC curriculum by fully certified teachers. We are associated with Zion Lutheran Church, Lutheran Church Canada (LCC), and the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (LCMS).
Lutheran schools, with a strong educational history, make up a vast school system of more than 7,000 schools across North America that offers education from the preschool level through post-graduate university programs.
At Zion we operate under the following core values:
Faith - As a Lutheran school, we are missional. We welcome families from all backgrounds, regardless of whether they go to church or not. Everything we do is based on God's Word and focused on sharing the love of Christ. As a Lutheran school we rest on these four basic doctrinal beliefs: Sola Fide (Faith Alone), Sola Gratia (Grace Alone), Sola Scriptura (Scripture Alone), and Solo Christo (Christ Alone).
Academic Excellence - At ZLCS we strive for academic excellence. We desire to be at "the top of our game" when it comes to current and sound teaching practice.
Professional Development for our Staff - As part of our goal of academic excellence, we desire to see our teachers and staff strive to be the best they can possibly be by providing opportunities to grow through meaningful Professional Development.
The Home-School Relationship - We see educating children as a joint adventure between home and school, thus promoting strong communication and regular contact between parent and teacher. Ultimately, the parent is the one responsible for ensuring a sound education for their children. We aim to support that.
The Individual - Our Lord says in Psalm 139 that He "knit us together in our mother's womb" and that we are "fearfully and wonderfully made". Each person in our care is a valued member of God's creation and we work hard to promote that.
Safety - We strive to ensure that ZLCS is a safe and secure place for the students in our care. This includes not only making sure our students feel safe from physical harm, but also from bullying (physical or otherwise). It also means that we want our students to feel safe sharing their thoughts and feelings in the classroom and with our staff and volunteers.
Service - We see great value in instilling a spirit of service in our students. This includes service to God, service to each other, and service to our community and beyond. We also provide opportunity for our families to serve either by volunteering at school or through charity work.
Integrity - We stand by our claims. We don't make promises we can't keep! Our goal is to make the best decisions possible for the educational care of our students.
