Primary School Student Life
At Regent, we consider weekly Chapel services important for all grade levels and have a separate Chapel for our Primary students.
We come together to worship the Lord through music, learn Bible truths, celebrate missions efforts, and also to recognize and encourage students as they strive to display Christian character traits.
Each week a pastor or one of the teachers presents a special message that is relevant to this age group.
Student participation is an important part of our Chapel time so worship is lively and the lessons are meaningful.
Middle School Student Life
We are committed to providing opportunities that encourage spiritual, intellectual, social, and physical growth.
Classes have daily devotions with their homeroom teachers and prayer is evident in all aspects of student functions and activities.
On the first Monday of each month, the entire student body assembles for a combined chapel.
During the rest of the month, middle school students meet together for an energetic and lively time of worship, prayer and teaching.
We have our own middle school worship team, and those students who desire to be active in worship team leadership, may commit themselves to weekly practice under the tutelage of our music teacher.Occasionally, we have guest speakers, but most
often our teachers and the middle school students bring the chapel message.
Spiritual Emphasis Days
Each fall, the middle school teachers identify a theme and speaker(s) for our Spiritual Emphasis Days. This is a time of focused teaching and worship; it is always a time of spiritual renewal for our students.
“For since the creation of the world, God’s invisible qualities-his eternal power and divine nature- have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made.” Romans 1:20
Each year, the older students in middle school participate in an extended, overnight field experience.
These experiences vary from year to year depending upon the teachers, the students, and curricular needs.
These outdoor education trips have included adventures such as hiking, camping, caving, snowshoeing, skiing, kayaking, and sailing.
Our extended field trips allow students to see each other in an entirely different setting, and give students a chance to discover the splendour of God’s creation-away from the distractions of the modern world.
High School Student Life
STUDENT LIFE at Regent Christian Academy is as important to us as academic excellence, sports, or the arts. It is our desire to raise up students with a personal understanding of the importance of being a Christian in all areas – not only church and school, but in their everyday life.
We encourage our students to grow in this way through Chapel services, retreats, and Spiritual Emphasis Days.
One of the main aspects of student life at RCA is time spent together in worship and learning more about God. Our weekly Chapel times include upbeat, contemporary worship, led by students from the Music and Worship class. Each week also holds solid, biblically-based teaching, often provided by teachers, administrators, local pastors, students from Pacific Life Bible College (PLBC), or out-of-town guest speakers. Every second week, our students are split into small groups led by PLBC students. Chapel is both fun and challenging, and many students will tell you that it is their favourite part of the week.
It is considered a priority at Regent to encourage open communication between staff and students, and to offer a well-rounded high school experience. Yearly retreats are one way of achieving these goals. Each year includes a Fall Kick-off, where new students are warmly welcomed and introduced to the rest of the student body. Periodically opportunities arise to attend various youth conferences. Students in leadership also go on retreat together every year to solidify their year’s objectives and to create unity in their working relationships.
Spiritual Emphasis Days
While academic and extra-curricular achievements are considered important at RCA, we believe that all levels of personal growth should be pursued, including spiritual growth. Reflecting this value is a two- to three-day in-house conference, where students, staff, and often many parents and friends of the school gather together to worship and learn. Speakers are usually guest ministers, and the High School worship team provides worship. Spiritual Emphasis Days usually happen in the fall but may also occur in the spring due to their yearly success.
