CCS Structure

Calgary Society for Christian Education (also called the CSCE or the Society), founded Calgary Christian School in the 1960’s as a private school. Today, CCS is a faith-based Alternative Program operating within the public Palliser School Division. As partnering organizations, the CSCE and Palliser Schools have specific and complementary duties in operating Calgary Christian School.

Each family with a child enrolled in Kindergarten through Grade 12 will hold a membership in the Society. The Society has an elected Board of Directors to provide its governance and oversight, as well as administrative and maintenance personnel to fulfill the operational needs of the school. The Society’s work promotes, funds, advances, and sustains the mission, facilities, and programs of Calgary Christian School.

The Society holds, at a minimum, two meetings per year for members and supporters. Society meetings focus on the mission and oversight of the school, including financial, facility, and faith-based aspects of CCS. As a complement and in contrast to these duties, monthly School Council meetings are hosted by principals and led by elected parent officers to facilitate an exchange of information and ideas between parents and staff on educational, operational, and community relations matters.

This governance and operating model provides parents and supporters the opportunity to actively participate in developing and delivering quality Christian learning experiences for CCS students.
