CCRTC Campaign Update #7      A final reminder . . . As you read this final reminder, the CCRTC Accreditation Fundraising Campaign is drawing to a close. If you had intended to give but haven't quite yet, there is still time to do so before May 31.   For 36 years, Covenant has worked hard to be the definitive source for Reformed teacher training, and thanks to you, we will be able to apply for government accreditation. If successful, it will give our ...

CCRTC Campaign Update #6

  May 6, 2017

Accreditation Update: Last month of campaign! With only one month left in our fundraising goal, we have raised $287,163.00! (as at May 4, 2017) This leaves only $ 62,837.00 to go! Success is in sight, with only a small gap yet to fill. If you have been wavering until now, or unsure as to whether this would be a worthwhile expense, please consider it an investment in the strength of Reformed values in Canada – less limited to select provinces, having more widespread impact on lives across the...

CCRTC Campaign Update #5

  April 25, 2017

Nationwide benefits! For decades, Covenant Canadian Reformed Teachers College has been the definitive source for Reformed teachers, supplying schools in Ontario. Unfortunately, Reformed Christian schools in Western provinces have not been able to benefit from our teachers because those provinces require their teachers to hold a Bachelor of Education. Our goal of accreditation for Covenant College will mean that provinces like British Columbia, Alberta and Manitoba will all enjoy a great new pool...

Accreditation: Achieving a better grade for Reformed schools! Why is it important to have fully accredited teaching staff in Reformed schools? Reformed teachers from Covenant College receive the same calibre of education as other accredited teaching programs, and we want to recognize them for it. It’s also important because having staff of accredited teachers in Reformed schools would increase the standing of Reformed education throughout Canada. Covenant College has been producing top-rate...

CCRTC Campaign Update #2: Strengthening Reformed Christian education across Canada

  March 15, 2017

Covenant Canadian Reformed Teachers College wants to achieve a stronger place for Christian education in Canada, for Canadian Reformed teachers and for the community as a whole. As you may know, we have initiated the steps to request accreditation for our teaching program. For our two-year program, being able to confer on our graduates a Bachelor of Education degree, is long overdue…but how will this benefit both education and our church?   With full teaching credentials, our teachers...

  March 10, 2017

After 36 years of being the definitive source for Reformed teacher training, Covenant Canadian Reformed Teachers College and its students are seeking to get some credit. This year we are embarking on an application with the provincial government to gain accreditation status, which will mean that our graduates will hold a Bachelor of Education degree upon completion of the Covenant Teachers College program – just like other accredited teaching programs across Canada. If successful in our application...
