Do you remember your high school years? Big emotions, big dreams, big challenges, and big questions. In a short burst of time a whole lot of growth takes place.
Helping students grow is what we do. By providing excellent education and affirming their identity in Christ we equip them to serve God and others.
God has been faithful. By His grace we have grown by leaps and bounds … now we are in need of a new school building!
Our Expansion Committee had been at work for five years preparing for the next facility. When this one became available, we brought it to the membership. Following a vote of 87% in favour, we made the purchase!
We are delighted with the many new features this building will offer.
Give us the additional classroom space we require to provide our growing student population with a place to thrive.
Allow us to reimagine and redesign our science labs as well as our drama, music, and art spaces
Improve athletic facilities with a renovation of the existing gym and addition of a second full-sized gym
Provide students with more communal space for student club activities and to spend meaningful time together during breaks
Provide enough room to meet future expansion requirements without needing to build additions or portables
A place where our students can get to class on time without feeling rushed. Where there is space to gather and deepen relationships. Where existing programs can be enhanced and even more programs are made available. A place full of possibilities, not restrictions.
Fund immediate facility improvements to get the new school ready for September 2023!
Eliminate the mortgage to keep tuition as affordable as possible.
Renovate the existing gym and build a second full-sized gym.
Buy boots from Tatra, and they will donate $30 from every purchase.

A heartfelt thank you to all of our sponsors and donors. The benefit concerts held on April 8th and April 19th for the ‘Taking a Leap Forward’ campaign were very successful, raising a cumulative amount of over $14,000. We thank God for all of you!
We continue to put our trust in the Lord to provide as He has so many times before.
“Bring the full tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. And thereby put me to the test, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you a blessing until there is no more need.” — Malachi 3:10
Do you remember when…
Guido de Brés was established with classes held in the old Central High School building in downtown Hamilton. We had a strong commitment to having our own Canadian Reformed school but we wondered where our permanent home would be.
We officially opened our original building at Stone Church Road East. We knew we would need sacrificial financial support from the community in order to maintain the school.
We launched the “Building in Faith” fundraising campaign and raised $2.5 million to double the space of our school. With excitement at an all-time high, we knew it was only a matter of time for more space to be needed.
An addition was built to increase space and establish dedicated special needs rooms. This allowed us to better serve the educational needs of each and every student. Once again we trusted the Lord to provide the funds for the addition and He richly blessed this leap forward.
We celebrated 40 years of God’s grace to our community. We remembered how the Lord faithfully strengthened us to be able to make the sacrifices needed to see our school continue to grow.
We are here! We’ve taken another leap!
350 Albright Road is set to open.
We know that to help our students thrive we have to keep growing and stretching out into new things ourselves. Each leap has been made with a deep trust in God to provide and an eagerness to give sacrificially.
Help our young people to discover that they can face big challenges and grow in big ways. Send them into the world with a firm foundation under their feet and with a confidence and readiness to serve. In this way, they won’t just survive high school, they will thrive in it!
