Who we are
began when our traditional, campus school – Heritage Christian School – closed in 2023. Heritage Christian School, a ministry of Kelowna Christian Center Society, had been a Christian school in Kelowna since 1986 when it began with 50 students. For almost 40 years, Heritage Christian School partnered with families in Kelowna to support children in their spiritual and academic journeys.
In 2022, the HCOS team began thinking about what could be possible if we were to combine the best of campus education with the best digital tools to help build the skills students need to succeed. We are excited about the future of education and our part in it.
To develop innovative Christ-centered educational opportunities for learners to explore and embrace God’s unique purpose.
Engaged Lifelong Learners
We aim to inspire every student to become a passionate learner who reaches towards their personal best while continually seeking out opportunities to grow. Our goal is that students leave HCOS having developed the skills and tools to remain discerning lifelong learners.
Authentic Christ Followers
One of the definitions of integrity is the quality or state of being complete or undivided. We believe this wholeness can only be found in Christ. Our desire for our students and, by extension their families, is to walk in the fullness of an authentic relationship with Christ within a supportive community that prays together, challenges each other and shares life together.
Intentional Supportive Community
Responding to the needs of our families, we develop a variety of opportunities for students to connect, to learn together and to build supportive community. Our teachers and staff pray for, encourage and come alongside our students and families as we partner with them in their academic journey.
Personalized Learning Choices
Just as every student is unique, their learning should be as well. We value creating individualized learning plans for every student that are designed to provide a flexible and tailored education, empowering and supporting parents as we partner with them. We strive to create innovative opportunities including individualized home education, any pace online courses, community building face-to-face learning groups, cross-enrolled options and much more.
