What is the Residency?

The SCSBC Residency serves to equip Christian educators with practical professional development with anticipation that these practices will lead to deeper learning opportunities for students. Over one week, teachers will participate in a growth track of their choosing and work with educational coaches and mentors in small ratio cohorts to design learning opportunities specifically catered to their current practice. 


We offer small coach-to-participant ratios to ensure all participants are equipped and confident in introducing or continuing their deeper learning practices in their schools. Participants can choose either a professional or covenant track depending on their individual or school-based needs. In partnership with academic graduate institutions, participants can choose to use their Residency experience as a scaffold to a Master’s program and receive program credits. 


We are committed to working alongside schools, administrators and teachers to ensure that their professional growth fits the needs of the individual and/or the strategic priorities of their school. In partnership with CEBC, we are committed to offering professional development that meets the contractual obligations for Christian educators in British Columbia.

Learning Tracks

Professional Learning track

The Residency has partnered with the Institute for Christian Studies (ICS) in Toronto, Ontario and Dordt University in Sioux Centre, Iowa to offer a professional growth track available to all Residency participants. Should participants want to continue their deeper learning journey, our university partnerships will provide partial graduate credit in pursuit of a Master of Education degree from Dordt or a Master of Arts in Educational Leadership from ICS.


*Note: Any participants that pursue a professional track must qualify for admittance to one of the partner universities.

Covenant Partnership Track

We are committed to working with schools and educators to develop long-term professional development plans. Through our partnership with Society of Christian Schools (SCSBC) we can support school development plans with learning leaders, Residency coaches and on-site professional development days for schools. 

A covenant partnership would allow schools consecutive access to our Residency week so we can continue to promote deeper learning training for the school’s educators. If a covenant partnership is inline with your school’s strategic growth plan or you are looking to develop a professional learning growth plan for your school, please contact us directly at
