Heritage Christian Schools Learning Commons website provides Canadian, Christian, educational digital and non-digital resources to our school users; including teachers, parents and students.
Our learning commons mission is… to transform young people across the globe by means of a Christ-infused resource based library. Recognizing that Heritage Christian Schools has been given an extraordinary opportunity to provide a distinct online educational framework, one that will impact youth in BC and around the world. Our goal is to prepare our students to become lifelong learners, who can disseminate information consistently, think creatively and innovatively, and research effectively online, while actively engaging in their world from a Christian world-view, through discipleship-based Christian Education.
