9. Future plans
Our 2016 move to our new location was a great success and we are now onto the joyous task of conducting renovations both inside and outside the campus. We are looking ahead with excitement, especially with the knowledge that as we grow we will be embracing new communities by educating children and teens from this area and around the world.
10. How was Signet created?
Signet Christian school was founded in 1975 by a small group of Christian families who wanted a high quality Christian education for their children. Originally our main campus was in Scarborough and we were named Scarborough Christian School (Academy). Signet Christian school was given its new name to reflect its sharper focus on the imprinting of Christ on our hearts and lives as we impact the world.
11. Are you affiliated with a Church?
As part of the Body of Christ, we share a warm relationship with many churches but are not affiliated or governed by any particular denomination. Our staff and students come from a wide range of churches and denominations and we welcome churches to share in our goal, to reach the next generation through education.
12. How is Signet governed?
We are an independent school governed by a Board of Directors who are dedicated Christian professional parents of various marketing, financial, and education backgrounds.
