Valley Christian School in Chilliwack began in 1991 as a satellite campus of Valley Christian School in Mission. It started as a parent run school, primarily by parents from three local churches, out of a desire to have their children educated in a Christian environment. Valley Christian began with 25 students in Kindergarten through Grade Nine, in a single classroom. It was the founding parents desire to raise their children in a biblical fashion at an inter-denomination school. Chilliwack Alliance church was chosen as a facility, as its education wing was not being used at its full capacity, and the leadership of the church desired to house a school.
Over the next several years, the student body grew. In 1995 it had 60 students. At that time, the school hired a principal named Phil Hills. He became a driving force behind the growth of the school. Over the proceeding 10 years, the student body expanded and peaked at 170 in 2003.
In 2001 MEI society in Abbotsford, who had been seeking a satellite campus in Chilliwack, approached Valley Christian School to become an MEI school. In the subsequent 5 years, an attempt was made to secure 5 acres of land on Knight Road in order to build a new campus. Due to unforeseen circumstances and hesitancy within the Agricultural Land Reserve, the land was not released and the campus project was abandoned.
The abandonment of the campus project provided an important transition point in the life of the school. The desire from MEI Abbotsford was to hand over leadership of MEI Chilliwack to a parent run council. The expectation would be that over a two year process, the relationship between the MEI Society and MEI Chilliwack would end, and the parent-board would be responsible for the school as of July 1, 2010.
The Chilliwack Leadership Council began in 2008 over the next 2 years transformed into the Board of Directors of Cascade Christian School. The new name was announced in February of 2010, along with the new direction for the school and its vision. The Board then worked diligently to procure its independent school status from the Ministry of Education and formed a society to oversee the school and set the vision for what our school offers our student, the community and the world.
