Every member of the Norwest Christian College learning community strives for excellence. Our students love to learn and their teachers focus on developing in them the necessary habits of mind that will enhance their study and their thinking. We believe that nurturing spirituality and character in students lends meaning and context to their pursuit of academic, cultural, physical and social excellence.
For this reason, biblical truth and the College’s values are at the centre of College routines. Our teachers use their own experience as Christians to teach from a biblical world view in all curriculum areas from Pre-School to Year 12.
Our teachers strive to provide a model of professional excellence to their students. Norwest’s dynamic learning culture promotes high academic standards while developing students’ equally important creative and critical thinking skills. This enables each student to become a mature, independent, life-long learner and find success in the post-secondary education of their choosing.
The College’s unique learning environment engages students in activities aligned with curriculum so that they understand expectations of them both in the classroom and in an assessment context. This enables students to actively participate in their own learning. Teachers also provide for students of all abilities, learning styles, and cultural backgrounds through differentiation of the curriculum.
