Logos Christian Program

The Logos Christian Program is an alternative program for students in Kindergarten to Grade 9, within a regular school setting. Students in the Logos Christian Program are taught from a Christian perspective by Christian teachers.   

The Purpose Statement

Our children’s learning environment will enhance their understanding of God’s love and His Word. Teachers and administrators will receive our support through prayer, fundraising, and volunteer work. Our schools and communities will be positively impacted by the presence of the Logos program.

What does the word Logos mean?

Logos is a Greek word meaning “The Word.” It comes from the verse, In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning.  ~John 1:1-2

Grow on Your Faith Journey in the Logos Christian and Alternative Christian Programs

Sherwood Park, AB. — Students from Kindergarten to Grade 12 have the option to grow in their faith as they journey into one of the several Christian programs at Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS). “We get to learn things from a Christian perspective which means we can dig a little deeper,” says Maeve Mast, a Grade 6 student at Brentwood Elementary. “I learn all the normal stuff but I also get to learn about Jesus. And the teachers make learning about God so much fun!”

Students enrolled in Logos Christian and Alternative Christian programs within EIPS receive religious Christian, Bible-based courses, instruction, exercises and instructional materials. “Alternative Christian programming allows students to grow in their faith in a safe and nurturing classroom environment,” says Jeanette Puttick, a teacher at Strathcona Christian Academy Secondary. “A faith-based learning environment integrates biblical principles into the everyday life of a student. Students may uncover God in the intricacies of science and mathematics or discover His heart for the marginalized as seen in social justice. They’re encouraged in their faith journey through prayer and Scripture and challenged to look through the lens of God’s love for the world.”

The Division’s Christian programs weave a religious perspective into every class. “The Christian worldview is integrated across subject areas and students are viewed as unique creations of God,” says Puttick. “With this in mind, teachers aim to teach holistically, focusing not only on a child’s intellectual progress, but also their spiritual, social and emotional growth. The community created is supportive and inclusive with a focus on God’s love for His people.”

Students can currently enter the Logos Christian program in Kindergarten to Grade 6 at Brentwood Elementary in Sherwood Park. The program continues at Sherwood Heights Junior High from grades 7-9.

In Sherwood Park, Alternative Christian programming is available at Strathcona Christian Academy Elementary from Kindergarten to Grade 6 and Strathcona Christian Academy Secondary from grades 7-12. Fort Saskatchewan Christian offers an Alternative Christian program from Kindergarten to Grade 9.

“My favourite part about being in Logos is being able to learn more and more about our Lord and Saviour and being surrounded by people who share the same faith and beliefs as me,” says Georgia Bullick, a Grade 6 student at Brentwood Elementary. “I learn about the Lord and his teachings and how to follow them in my everyday life. My favourite Logos activity has to be our monthly chapel. It brings joy, new activities and teachings to me and my fellow schoolmates.”

Interested students and families are invited to attend an upcoming Logos Christian Program information session:

Logos Information

Hello Brentwood Logos Families!

For those I haven't had the pleasure of meeting yet, my name is Kindra Varty and I am the Brentwood School Representative for the Logos Society. My role is designed to be a liaison for families, administrators, parent council and the Logos board. I am here to answer any questions you may have in regards to the Logos Society. 

I will be sending these monthly emails mostly as a reminder for our monthly chapels but will also use these emails to keep you all informed on future events/meetings, fundraising opportunities & any other information needing to be passed along. 

All chapel dates will be published on the school's website and typically happen every 3rd Thursday of the month at 2:00pm. This may change, which is why I will be sending out these emails with updates if needed!

 With that being said, Thursday, September 21st @ 2:00pm will be our first Brentwood Logos Chapel in the gym! This chapel will be a worship focused chapel. Each class will pick a song for their fellow Logos schoolmates to sing along too! 

The next Logos Society meeting will be on Tuesday, October 10th @ 7:00pm. The meeting will be held at Sherwood Heights in the Library. All meeting dates and locations can be found on the elk island logos website (elkislandlogos.ca). These meetings are open to all parents and guardians of Logos students, we would love to have you join us at the next meeting!

Lastly, the Logos Society is here for any prayer requests needed or questions you may have. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me at kindra@elkislandlogos.ca!

Have a wonderful day,

Help Promote LOGOS

Attention Parents, Caregivers, Family and Friends! 

In response to the recent drop in enrollment numbers, the Elk Island Logos Society NEEDS YOU to help spread the word about the program in the community. We believe many people simply don’t know about the program and how amazing it is!

Here’s how you can help. We are looking for people who are willing to help advertise the program: 

  • At your home church 
  • At preschools in the area 
  • At daycares in the area 

This may be as simple as committing to creating a connection with your preschool or daycare and taking a day or two during prime pick-up times to share about the program with other parents. We have signage and advertisements that can help with this. 

We are also looking for parents who would be willing to set up a table in their church foyer or children’s ministry area to share about the Logos program with your church community. Again, we have signage and advertisements that can help with this. 

If you are interested in helping Logos grow for future generations, please contact us at vicepresident@elkislandlogos.ca. We are asking for help now so we can be prepared to start actively spreading the word before EIPS registration time in February. We can’t do this without you.

Logos Prayer Box

Did you know that approximately once a month, a number of Logos parents meet to pray for our school, staff, and students? 

Send prayer requests to prayer@elkislandlogos.ca



Religious assemblies are held monthly for all Logos students. Programs may include Bible readings, religious songs, dramas and prayers. Different classes plan these celebrations and they often focus on different themes or religious holidays. Parents, relatives and friends are always invited to attend.
