How is the Junior High Program at Fort McMurray Christian School different?

The biggest way we are different is our size. We are a small school with around 50 students in junior high, which allows for kids to learn together as a community. Our Junior High staff will get to know each student personally and kids can create lasting friendships. The small size also allows for a small student-to-teacher ratio, which is why we do so well on Provincial Achievement tests year after year compared to other schools.

Students also help come up with options classes. Our options classes change and adapt to fit what the current group of students is most interested in, whether it be Worship Arts, Foods, Fashion & Fabrics, Space Academy, Photography, Videography, Coding, Outdoor Education, Sports Performance, and much more. 

We also have excellent sports teams that have excelled over the years. Even though we are small, we are mighty when it comes to Athletics. Over the past 5 years, we have won multiple city championships in both our Junior High and Elementary programs.

Students during the Outdoor Education Elective

Semester 1 Electives

We have two semesters that run from September to January and February to June. Students have a voice in what we offer for their electives to maximize student experience and learning. 

Outdoor Education

Teachers: Ms. Huygen, Mr. Bishop

We are excited to offer Outdoor Education at Fort McMurray Christian School in the 2022-2023 school year. Outdoor Education takes learning beyond the walls of the classroom. Students will explore what they can do outdoors and learn more about the environment. This will facilitate their understanding of God’s great world and about their role in protecting it. They will appreciate life in all its forms and understand basic ecological processes. Through various outdoor activities, they will develop skill, judgement and confidence in, and sensitivity to the importance of taking care of God’s diverse creation. These understandings and skills are exactly what God has commissioned us to go and do with His world.

There are six main learner outcomes in Outdoor Education:
• Commitment to Action
• Outdoor Expeditions
• Environmental Investigations
• Outdoor Safety
• Personal and Group Development
• Environmental Safety

Through activities such as hiking, orientering, cycling, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing, students will develop the knowledge and skills that will prepare them for fun and safe activities.

Space Academy

Teacher: Mr. Syed

In this course we will focus on foundational skills for technology that are fundamental to the Fort McMurray Christian School Space Academy program. This course (Space Academy) is designed to teach students:

  • Coding basics in Python

  • Building computers and loading operating systems
  • Understanding Cloud technologies with hands on experiences

This course is perfect for anyone interested in learning about technology, coding, robotics and building things. All of these skills will lead the students into mastering elements of Space Academy.
