MBCI Foundations

Students of MBCI are provided an education that goes beyond preparing them for post-secondary schooling. Students of MBCI are readied by their curriculum, their experiences, their teachers, and their peers to realize their potential. Graduates of MBCI leave the school rooted in what has come before them and prepared for what is yet to be.

We do this every day by…

  • Using innovative learning techniques in the classroom that develop collaboration, communication and critical thinking skills
  • Customizing the learning experience for each student
  • Relating classroom learning to real life situations
  • Offering learning experiences outside the classroom through active participation in musicals, clubs, athletics, study tours, community service, etc.
  • Celebrating student achievements and successes
  • Creating an environment that encourages students to explore their unique potential
  • Partnering with parents to support the exploration of their child’s potential
  • Positively reinforcing every student’s gifts and strengths
  • Providing multiple opportunities for the development of leadership skills – athletics, musical groups, community service

 


 

Students of MBCI are challenged, guided, and encouraged in the development of high ethical standards. Students learn, live by, and in turn, teach our world’s ever-expanding definition of right and wrong, good and evil, virtue and vice, justice and injustice. Graduates of MBCI are prepared to live life after school by these principles learned within our walls and apply them always for the greater good.

We do this every day by…

  • Challenging students to respond to, address and act upon ethical issues
  • Embracing diversity as a school community
  • Having open-minded discussions with students on real-world issues
  • Developing critical thinking skills in every student, encouraging them to search, analyze and process issues and problems in a variety of ways
  • Fostering open discussion on social justice concerns
  • Holding students accountable to a high standard of ethical behaviour
  • Helping students develop healthy and positive ways to deal with conflict

Students of MBCI are invited to adopt a Christian world view and to interpret the world around them from a Christian perspective. Graduates of MBCI use this passion as a guide in their current and future relationships with people and God. Attention to MBCI’s Foundations, a conscientious learning environment, biblical studies courses, activities such as chapel, and interactions with teachers demonstrate to students what it means to be a Christian and how Christianity can positively affect their daily lives.

We do this every day by…

  • Designing course material and assignments that encourage faith exploration
  • Developing a close knit, compassionate classroom community
  • Providing opportunities for students to grow spiritually in chapel, biblical studies and school life groups
  • Taking the time to care, understand and talk with students about their well-being, home life and real-world joys and struggles
  • Engaging in genuine discussions on real-life issues in the classroom and during extra-curricular activities
  • Encouraging students to form their own world view by providing support, guidance and information
  • Incorporating a strong focus on community service

 


 

Students of MBCI are given every opportunity to develop character through a healthy balance of curriculum, competition, and community. Participation in extra-curricular activities in combination with the other elements at the respectful core of MBCI’s Foundation enables students and graduates to find and claim their direction, their purpose, and their calling while fostering lifelong friendships and connection with community.

We do this every day by…

  • Instilling the confidence necessary for students to make informed decisions regarding their education, their futures, and their day-to-day lives
  • Guiding students to look beyond themselves to the larger community through their participation in ongoing community service
  • Encouraging a disciplined approach to extra-curriculars to develop a strong work and study ethic
  • Creating strong teacher-student connections through continuous and open communication
  • Treating each student as an individual, but holding all students accountable to a high standard of learning and behaviour
  • Encouraging healthy, respectful relationships between students
