Surrey Christian School and Cloverdale Christian School partner together!
|We are excited to announce that Zion Lutheran Church has voted overwhelmingly in favour of transitioning the operations of Cloverdale Christian School to Surrey Christian School. We intend this to be effective January 1, 2018. Cloverdale Christian is a PreK-7 school of 190 students and will go by the name of “Surrey Christian School Cloverdale Campus”. We are excited to be able to partner with the Cloverdale community in educating for wholeness.
Cloverdale Christian School (founded in 1959) and Surrey Christian School (founded in 1964) have a rich history in Christian education. We are thankful to both founding parents for their faithfulness and vision for these schools.
A special thank you to the Zion Lutheran Church Board, the Cloverdale Christian School board, the merge subcommittee and Matthew Beimers (Cloverdale principal) for their strong leadership in this process over the last 18 months.
Together, we look forward to an exciting future!
“We are absolutely thrilled to be joining with SCS in providing Christ-centred education in Cloverdale! Combining the rich histories and resources of both our schools will not only strengthen our legacies, but also ensure a bright future as we continue to offer educational excellence in a safe and caring environment.”
– Grant McMaster (former board chair Cloverdale Christian School)
“The merger of two healthy Christian School communities will result in a stronger presence of Christian education in Surrey. Increased staff collaboration and a unified infrastructure, along with varied program offerings and locations will be a benefit to all involved.”
– Ed Noot, Executive Director of SCSBC
