We believe that a rigorous Christian curriculum that has excellence clearly in view will best help children grow as confident followers of Jesus, prepared to excel in their future callings. With this in mind, we are constantly focusing our energy on curriculum development and improvement, seeking the best teaching methods and equipment.
As a Christian school, we teach all our subjects from a Christian worldview, opening the students’ hearts and minds to the wonder of God’s creation, His hand in history, and His lordship over all.
Our classroom teaching is enriched by a poetry cafe, public speaking, biannual Shakespeare festival, Science and Heritage fair, class trips and service opportunities (among many other things!)
Immanuel Christian School is the only school on PEI to use a revolutionary way of teaching French called Histoires en action! Carefully designed stories that are written in the form of plays become the focus for a range of motivating language activities that help students develop confidence in the language as they progress through each story unit.
A major component of this program is the Gesture Approach, a technique that uses hand signs to help students learn and remember the important vocabulary found in the plays, songs, and other activities. There is a strong emphasis on the development of all four language skills (reading, writing, listening and speaking) through a program that meets the needs of all language learners and their learning styles.
