About Brampton Christian School
“Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them”
Kennedy Road Tabernacle, affiliated with the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada, had been serving the Brampton area since 1967, when its leadership team sensed the call of God to establish the KRT Christian School ministry with a vision of establishing a strong interdenominationally Christian presence in Brampton and Caledon for generations to come. Concurrently, KRT began the application process with the Ministry of Education to become an offically registered private school, and KRT Christian Schools was officially established in 1977 as a registered private board of education and school.
In 1977, under the direction of Pastor Ron Stevens, Mr. Mark Kennedy was installed as the founding principal and with 8 teachers and 94 students in Grades JK to grade 5, classes began in the Sunday School classrooms and two portables at the church, but the facility was quickly outgrown. In response to the incredible demand and burgeoning classrooms, Pastor Stevens and the KRT Church Board, in addition to a group of dedicated KRT members, sacrificially committed to taking personal mortgages to buy the land upon which Brampton Christian School is situated today.
In the same year, KRT Christian School broke ground on the first phase of its development. It was completed in time for September, 1978. In that year, 265 students and 13 teachers under the leadership of Principal David J. Hardy, began a new chapter in the great story of KRT Christian Schools, whose story is still unfolding today as Brampton Christian School.
In 1982, Mr. Bob Boshart took the helm of the school and during his 26-year tenure, along with Vice-Principal Sharon Tannahill, stewarded the expansion of the school to provide accredited service up to Grade 12.
As God continued to bless the Brampton Christian School Ministry, Mr. Boshart facilitated the expansion of the original school to include a new high school facility in 1995, all the while judiciously saving to fund yet another expansion. With further growth in mind, Mr. Boshart's retirement in 2007 and Mrs. Tannahill's return to her first love, teaching art in the classroom, was accompanied by a strategic plan that would install Mr. Ralph Andrews as Interim Principal, along with the appointment of three departmental vice-principals. Mrs. Doggart had already served as the Elementary Vice-Principal since 1998, and she was joined in 2007 by Mr. John Miller as the new Junior High Vice-Principal and Mr. Andy Cabral as the new High School Academy Vice-Principal. Together with the support of Pastor Jamie Stewart and the active service of the KRT Board and School Management Team members, the massive $6 million high school addition was completed on time and under budget. In less than two years, this beautiful state-of-the-art high school was dedicated to the glory of God to house our growing school population, with the old high school becoming the new home of our Junior High division. In August 2010, Mr. Alex Abdulnour succeeded Mr. Andrews as Principal of Brampton Christian School. Mr. Abdulnour is inspired by the privilege of "standing on the shoulders of giants." Mr. Abdulnour's track record as a passionate visionary and strategic champion of educational growth and development in international private school education has prepared him to lead the collaborative, tactical advancement of Brampton Christian School to further its legacy of excellence in academic innovation, spiritual distinction, athletic triumph, artistic celebration, preferred services, and community partnerships.
