Why Rhema

What does a Rhema education look like?

At Rhema Christian School, our main focus is to ensure our students receive an excellent education, but at Rhema an education is so much more than that. The Rhema community is like a family. From junior kindergarten through grade eight, our students learn to love and respect themselves and each other, their neighbours, their community, their environment, and their faith.

Learning at Rhema is fun. We have very high standards, and we know children learn best when they are engaged and interested. We expand their learning with hands-on experiences and bring projects alive with special activity days.

By integrating Christian principles into the curriculum, our children learn how to make and build relationships, how to manage their emotions, and how to use their personal power – in short we teach “emotional literacy” naturally. Research is now proving the importance of this in assisting children to grow and mature into happy, confident, balanced adults who are able to make sound decisions, cope with conflict and adversity, and form lasting relationships.

We know we fulfill our students’ spiritual needs – it’s what we do best. We make sure our curriculum is current, relevant, stretching, and creative so that their educational and physical needs are met too. We encourage fun and play during learning – after all, that’s what children do best!

We believe every child is special simply because God loves them. Everything we do at Rhema reflects this. Rhema is a safe place for students to explore their faith and beliefs. It is safe for them to explore worldviews and compare them; and always a safe place for them to experiment with how they think about today’s culture. At Rhema, students can begin to think about how they fit into that culture and the role they have to play.

For this reason, a Rhema education builds self-esteem and self-discipline. Rhema students graduate feeling prepared for the challenges of high school and feeling confident in who they are. They graduate with an excellent education, wonderful memories, and firm friendships.

The majority of our families are from a Christian background, but not all of them. Many families without a strong personal faith appreciate the standard of education at Rhema and value the Christian principles their children witness and learn in a loving, family-oriented environment.
