Christian School Teacher’s Certificate

The Christian School Teacher’s Certificate (CSTC) is an Edifide Christian Educators Association (edifide logo) certificate, administered by the Credentials Committee. Endorsed by the Ontario Alliance of Christian Schools (OACS), it is a unique certificate in that it attempts to integrate theory and practice in Christian education. Therefore, it is important that all teachers in OACS-affiliated schools be required to obtain this certificate as a priority for their professional development.
