Cedars Historical Timeline

Cedars Christian School started with humble beginning and big dream. After years of struggle and prayer by several godly and persistent families, Cedars opened its doors to 75 students in 1977. The school was purchased from the school district, which had closed the doors of North Nechako School some years earlier.

The structure contained only a few classrooms and no gymnasium, but it wasn’t to stay that way for long. With considerable hard work and sacrifice, 3 major building projects have been completed over the last 25 years. First, a gym was added, then several more classrooms, and in 1996, a third addition was built to contain a new high school facility. The dream became reality as the school was complete from Preschool to Grade 12.

Cedars has changed its physical site considerably over the years, but the vision for Christian education hasn’t changed. Cedars staff and parents work together to integrate their faith in Christ into all aspects of daily life. Our goal, as it has always been, is to present education to our children so that they see that God is Lord of all aspects of our lives. From science lessons to puppet shows, our vision is to develop responsive disciples of Jesus Christ. We do this with a goal for excellence and quality, each child encouraged to achieve to their potential – to become all that God wants them to be.

Over the years, many exciting and new programs have been established at Cedars such as Learning Assistance, Music Programs, and French in both elementary and secondary classes, a Christ-centred family life program, plus much more.
