Our Story Begins and Continues with God’s Grace
During the 1950s, a group of Christians in the old Town of Galt began dreaming of establishing a Christian school, and 50 years later, we are celebrating all that God has done, are poised for the next stage, and are eager to see how God will continue to use Christian education in Cambridge.
In those beginning years, families came together with a similar and distinct understanding that God was calling them to raise their children to know God and serve Him. They were convinced that a parent’s responsibility for biblical instruction did not end at home. They wanted a school that could partner with parents and provide learning and leadership that was centred in the Word of God.
As a result, the Galt Environment Christian School Society was formed in 1958. After we spent many years planning and working hard, the Lord provided the present Myers Road location and our school opened in September 1967. It is amazing to see how God has led us from our humble beginnings in two classrooms to the present day. We are so thankful to God for His many blessings as we have renovated and expanded our building over the years!
Our staff’s commitment to providing excellence to our students and care to our families was on full display during Spring 2020 when COVID-19 changed the way we operated. Our staff pivoted to an at-home learning program on the first day back from March Break. They taught online with creativity and passion and connected with their classes and individual students regularly. As a community, we enjoyed a virtual Grandparents’ Day, a virtual pet show, and other school-wide events, as well as a vibrant Grade 8 graduation ceremony in our back field.
After recently celebrating our 50th year, revitalizing the outdoor play in our field, and continuing to dream about our future, we move forward with our calling to provide Christian education in the Cambridge area. It is our hope and prayer that God will continue to bless us as we seek to be a blessing to many Christian families. We strive to be faithful to Him who has led us thus far, so that many more graduates will impact Canadian society as witnesses to a higher calling.
