North Toronto Christian School is a co-educational Christian elementary and high school, not affiliated with any specific church or denomination. The Bible is used as an integral part of the school curriculum and all matters of counselling, discipline, and school life are governed by a commitment to Biblical principles and values.
Traditional Christian values are promoted and integrated into the arts, sciences, physical education, and all aspects of the school program. Dedicated teachers seek to provide guidance and instill a sense of self-worth into students, which is of inestimable value over a lifetime. NTCS promotes the love of God and teaches respect for others, obedience to parents, and non-violent solutions to problems.
NTCS was created to provide an enriched environment where the natural desire of children to learn and achieve is nourished, leading them to a full realization of their spiritual, intellectual, and physical potential.
North Toronto Christian School believes that emotional and physical development, social interaction, Biblical teaching, and intellectual and artistic achievement are all essential to the educational process and are best promoted in a family-oriented, teacher-directed, and disciplined environment.
It is the purpose of NTCS to provide a sound academic education integrated with a Christian view of God and the world. No subject can be taught in the totality of its truth if the Creator is ignored or denied. This approach to education provides a unifying framework within which all facts are learned, all opinions formed, and all values developed.
The school considers the Word of God clear in making Christian parents responsible for the education of their children. Children should be educated at home and at school with the consciousness that all truth is God's truth and that Jesus Christ is to be central to all learning and living.
The objective of the academic program of NTCS is to create a partnership between the home and the school that will develop in each student a lifelong love of learning.
Academics at NTCS are taught and evaluated at a rigorous level to equip students with the knowledge, discipline, and skills necessary to succeed in their academic pursuits and career. Students will need to be focused, goal oriented and love learning in order to be successful at NTCS. Students who are not willing to take ownership of their education should not consider NTCS to be a good fit for their needs.
The physical education program is designed to encourage students to develop and enjoy an active lifestyle that includes a commitment to personal fitness, sports, and healthy dietary choices for lifelong health.
The school's philosophy is that sports competition at a suitable skill level is an enjoyable, character- building experience for children of all ages. Through sport, students learn how to lose with grace, to win with modesty, and, above all, to participate with others with the teamwork required to achieve what often seems like an unreachable goal. Students are required to participate in the physical education program and are encouraged to be involved in sports teams, intramurals, and other extracurricular activities.
