Nanaimo Christian School is certified by the Province of British Columbia.  It is rated, educationally, as a group “one” school under the Independent School Act.  This ensures that it is operated by an “authority” (Board of Directors) and established as a society.  

NCS has an educational program which is organized and purposeful.  This enables students to fulfill the quest of their calling.  Being a group “one” school has many requirements.  Highlights are: all teachers must have proper certification, the educational program must comply with the ministry’s requirements, and the school undergoes a full external evaluation every six years as well as being monitored on a regular basis.
