Principle’s message

Fountainview is a training ground for a wide range of workers in God’s cause.  Students may go from here to a university, a trades program, or directly into the work force as a Bible worker or a mechanic.  Our academic program has to meet the needs and requirements of students called by God to any of these paths. As we continually seek to implement the Lord’s directions in the book Education, we’ve been blessed with positive results.  Our scores on government exams have been significantly above the average for students across British Columbia (which has one of the highest-rated educational systems in Canada and even worldwide), and the percentile of our average score on the ACT test (for college-bound American students) has been 20 points above average. Whether they’re called to be an engineer or a missionary, a pastor, a vegan chef, or a doctor, it’s thrilling to work with fantastic young people who sincerely desire to serve the Lord.

Academics

     A school exists to teach. Knowledgeable instructors who can effectively convey information and inspire students are necessary to achieve this goal and thus instill useful abilities in their pupils. Fountainview has strived for excellence in this regard by searching out teachers who meet these qualifications, but who are also intimately connected with Christ. This strategy has proved fruitful in providing a top-notch scholastic program. In addition to this, mentors and supervisors with experience in countless fields are available, and they seek out opportunities to teach and guide the students. Instead of facing a bleak future unprepared, graduates of Fountainview are equipped with skills that will carry them in whatever direction God leads. I plan on studying computer science at Southern Adventist University, and I know that I have been prepared to face the challenges that will arise from this endeavour, whether they are issues of time management, critical thinking, or teamwork. I can recommend the program because my experience has shown me that Fountainview is dedicated to providing excellent education and will continue preparing its students for success.
