International Students


International Students: Kindergarten-Grade 6

Our elementary campus welcomes applications for International Students. At this time we do not offer ESL programs.

Please contact the school office with any questions regarding International Student applications.

International Students: Grades 7-12

Students are integrated into regular Canadian classes and may take the classes for audit or credit.  The number of international students per class will be limited to ensure that the students have maximum opportunity to develop English language skills and to integrate with Canadian students.


To become a student of John Knox Christian High School is to become a part of the JKCS community.  It is a community that is committed to educating students from a distinctive Christian perspective, challenging them to discover, grow and use their unique gifts, helping them to understand Christ’s love for them, and equipping them to serve and lead with His love in a rapidly changing world.

Our curriculum is taught from a Christian perspective and meets the requirements set by the BC Ministry of Education. All teachers employed by John Knox are committed Christians, certified by the Ministry of Education, and dedicated to the vision and mission of JKCS.
