King’s Christian Collegiate has gained a widespread reputation for offering superb instruction in a welcoming culture of respect and opportunity. Teaching is delivered in a distinctly caring manner consistent with the teachings of Jesus Christ. King’s students are eager to achieve deep understanding within each subject area, ranging from mathematics, history, science and business to visual and theatre arts, music, Biblical studies and literature.
Since opening with 64 students in 2001, King’s has grown to serve 680 students in Grades 9 through 12. Class sizes are limited, allowing lively interaction and an ideal opportunity for maximum learning. The student body comprises teens from around the globe, including students from Egypt, Korea, Australia, Jordan, Switzerland, South America and China.
We are an independent government-inspected and approved Christian high school in Oakville, Ontario, offering students every opportunity for success in high school and beyond, by providing excellent instruction in a safe and stimulating academic environment. King’s is a charitable organization incorporated under the laws of the Province of Ontario to establish, maintain and operate a school to provide Christ-centred secondary education. The corporation is governed by a set of by-laws, which were adopted November 8, 1999 and are amended from time to time.
To provide the finest secondary education in a Christian environment that encourages self-discipline, creative thinking, and strong character development, and that equips students academically, socially, physically and spiritually, employing all talents to the honour of God.

The Beliefs That Guide Us
We believe that King’s Christian Collegiate is called to be a missional school, set apart by seeking God’s vision for our purpose and identity. We believe in following Jesus and we understand that to be led by Jesus is to seek and promote a community of care.
We follow a path of redemptive living and are committed to experiencing the depths of God’s love through grace. Jesus invites us into a way of life that is peaceable, relational, humble, truthful and loving. We strive to be a place where everyone belongs.
At King’s, we believe that the quality of education is greatly impacted by the staff who interact with students every day.
Think back to your own high school experience. Perhaps you can remember one or two teachers who inspired you – to love learning, to think critically and creatively, to exceed even your own expectations. Now imagine a whole school filled with just such teachers.
We strive to hire exemplary teachers – gifted Christians with enthusiastic, open-hearted spirits who are committed to helping students flourish in a challenging academic environment. Our teachers act with integrity and sincerely believe in the distinct gifts inherent in each student. They set the tone for a safe and healthy learning environment.
King’s provides students with a well-rounded education that anchors enduring ideas through deeper learning experiences. We equip our students for diverse post-secondary opportunities by providing a rich program of academics, arts, athletics, and a wide range of co-curricular activities.
We recognize that a safe and harmonious atmosphere is important to both parents and students. To that end, all students sign the King’s Student Charter upon admission and understand that their signature commits them to standards of healthy living and a way of life that encourages flourishing.
Students at King’s are expected to be ready learners, willing and able to work closely with and to respond to staff. When adults work alongside students, modelling a faithful presence for a Godly way to live, the concept of discipline is understood as relational. Discipline is synonymous with teaching right living.
We believe that the development of character is as important an aspect of learning as the development of the mind. Consequently, students are taught to uphold such values as integrity, honour, and respect for others, and are expected to demonstrate these qualities in their daily lives. Regular chapels and required courses in Biblical Studies help to promote a way of life that models Jesus’ love.
King’s Christian Collegiate desires to provide your teenager with an exemplary secondary education in a caring Christian environment where self-discipline, creative thinking, and character development equip students academically, socially, physically and spiritually for service in God’s world.
In September 1998, several members of the Halton community were inspired to pray about the possibility of establishing a Christian high school in the area. After a period of one month, they, along with other like-minded individuals, met and shared what they felt God had laid on their hearts concerning this endeavour.
The result was the striking of a steering committee in January 1999. Parents in seven Christian area schools were surveyed as to their interest in a new high school. By-laws and a constitution were drawn up by the committee and on April 27, 1999, the constituting meeting of the Halton Region Christian Education Association was held.
Hundreds of families now belong to the association. The membership is diverse in its church denominations, yet united in its desire to provide quality Christian-based secondary school education to its young people.
