Welcome to Fort Saskatchewan Christian School!
Fort Saskatchewan Christian School is a K-9 Christian School, in partnership with Fort Saskatchewan Alliance Church, and an alternative program within Elk Island Public Schools. We seek to provide an excellent education that glorifies God by focusing on three pillars: Prayer, Education and Outreach.
"To assist families by providing students with a Christ-centered, biblically directed education which instills the vision and practice of excellence in academics, moral character and service to others."
All families using EIPS Student Transportation services for the 2017-18 school year should have already received a tentative route schedule. Those required to pay applicable transportation fees should have also received a separate invoice outlining payment information—we encourage parents to pay pay fees online.
If you haven’t received a letter from Student Transportation yet, and would like to inquire about busing for your child, contact Student Transportation at 780-417-8151.
Look for bus passes and any updated route information in your mail in August.
Important Dates and Times
For a complete list of holidays and school-closure days during the 2017-18 school year, see the EIPS Alternative Christian Calendar.

Purchasing school materials? Before you shop, check your child’s School Supply List (click on link and scroll down through documents to find your child's list).
Families are invoiced for school fees at the beginning of every school year. Fees are due within 30-days of the invoice date. The simplest, and most convenient, way to pay schools fees is using ACORN by logging into the PowerSchool Parent Portal. If circumstances exist where you are unable to pay your students fees you can apply to have fees waived by submitting an Application for a Waiver of Fees.
