Thank you for your interest in Campbell River Christian School. CRCS offers a fully accredited program from Kindergarten through Grade 12. Each graduating student receives either a Dogwood or an Evergreen diploma. Our campus is located at 250 South Dogwood Street, in the heart of Campbell River.
CRCS was founded in 1981 as part of the ministry of the Campbell River Baptist Church and exists to assist Christian parents to fulfill their God-given mandate to raise, educate and train their children to live vital and active Christian lives. Campbell River Christian School is a K-12 independent school that meets the prescribed learning outcomes of the British Columbia Ministry of Education though a biblical worldview. It is the specific purpose of our school to provide a program of education which, while upholding a standard of the scholastic excellence, has its integrated centre in the Triune God and fosters vital Christian living.
All staff are committed to a strong Christian witness and are dedicated to providing a quality Christ-centered education.
Enrolment is limited to Christian young people or those from Christian homes. All students must agree with the stated principles of our school and have a willingness to work toward perfecting good character.

t is expected that students will arrive and leave school in dress code. Our philosophy behind dress code is based on three earmarks: Acceptability (as is common to the average public workplace in our culture), modesty and cleanliness. Some of these guidelines are more appropriately applied to upper intermediate and high school students. If there is a guideline you are unclear about please clarify with your child's teacher or the vice principal.
