Christian School began operating at the beginning of 1996 in answer
to a rapidly growing need for teaching in an environment of biblical
morality and ethics in a society becoming increasingly secular.
These same principles are applied to this day. The original
curriculum used wa provided by the School of Tomorrow's Accelerated
Christian Education (ACE) system which taught learners to study
individually at a pace suitable for their own ability and
temperament. When the National Department of Education began to
streamline the education system the board of Benoni Christian
School, after consulting with parents, adopted the public school
system's curriculum but added to it as the need arose.
Since its inception, Benoni Christian School has had a 100 per cent
matric pass rate. A number of learners have excelled at Mathematics
Olympiads, resulting in offers of bursaries from American
universities. The focus on smaller classes, and hence greater
individual assistance, has the advantage that learners can be aided
effectively to gain maximum benefit from such attention. From its
humble beginnings of just five learners and one teacher, the school
has grown to an average learner body of ninety students with a
dedicated academic staff of seventeen. There is room for growth and
the school can accommodate more learners.
The high motivation of the school's staff to achieve excellence in
student learning has been of great benefit for learners. Being a
non-profit organisation, teachers forgo a number of the privileges
of those in the public school system, motivated by their love for
Christ and the growth of their learners.
The school continues to perform its function under the guidance of a
board of trustees and a governing body. Progress, development and
excellence are constantly scrutinised in order to maintain the high
standards which the school practices in keeping with the school
motto "Strive towards the truth".
