Quisqueya Christian School An Elite Academic Institution

ADVERTISEMENT


Quisqueya Christian School (QCS) in Haiti is one of a network of private Christian college-preparatory schools, scattered around the world. Its mission is to offer an American school-based curriculum for students, kindergarten to high-school age. In addition, the school incorporates Christian theology into its classes to orient children to the Christian values and beliefs that form its world view.

Two accreditation bodies, the Association of Christian Schools International and Advanced, have approved the academic standards of Haiti's QCS. Known as an academically-superior teaching institution, QCS's students have matriculated to such highly-regarded U.S. schools as Chicago, Brown, Cornell, and Duke Universities.

A Board of Trustees comprised of the Haitian Diaspora and upper-class nationals are appointed with limitless terms of service. They employ the school superintendant, who chooses the principal, who in turn hires the accounting and school-maintenance staff.

QCS's teaching staff is culled from U.S.- and Canadian-certified teachers. It has a small student body, not quite 300 enrollees, who attend grade-, middle-, and high-school classes. Programs for advanced and special-education students meet the needs of these differently-taught populations.

The QCS grounds spread over three and a half acres, containing eight teaching facilities. Buildings house a well-resourced library, modern computer lab, gym, and sports spaces. It offers a full athletic program in team sports and league play.

One of the very few schools to have survived the 2010 earthquake intact, QCS provides an environment in which students are developed according to Bible-based Christian values.
