Centennial Christian School | Terrace BC

History

In September 2016, Centennial began its 50th year of operation! The fact that Centennial has 50 years of history is a testimony to God's faithfulness, as well as to the visionary leadership of its founding members, and to the many committed people who have built it into the thriving school that it is today. Their persistence and dedication was driven by the belief that all of life, including education, must fall under the lordship of Christ.

Centennial began in the 1966-1967 school year (Canada’s Centennial Year!) with students in grades 1 to 7. It has been existence since 1967 when facilities were available for rent from the Christian Reformed Church. Through the donation of land and money and the dedicated work of volunteers, a new facility was built in 1988/1989. Growth and enrollment necessitated further additions in 1990 and 1993. In June of 2002, Centennial Christian School celebrated its first ever grade 12 graduation. In the spring of 2008 a decision was made to add preschool. Today, our inter-denominational school accommodates more than 200 students from Preschool through Grade 12. To date, nine classes totaling 106 students have graduated from grade 12 at Centennial Christian School.

Centennial Christian School continues to be a member of the Society of Christian Schools in B.C. (SCSBC) and Christian Schools International (CSI).
