Who We Are
Celebration International School is a joyous, thriving institution where we all put our soul into all that we do. It
is an exciting, energizing place to learn as well as being a rewarding place to work – we hope that when you
join us, you will sense what a wonderful school it is.
Tree of Life Learning Centre was launched as an Accelerated Christian Education (ACE) School from one classroom in Celebration Centre in January 2002. There were approximately 12 students ranging in age from 7 years to 14 years of age. Tree of Life Centre became known as Celebration Learning Centre.
In June 2007 Celebration Learning Centre became a stand-alone entity inaugurating its own Board of Governors to govern its operations and develop the school. Nevertheless, the CLC Board is still ultimately responsible to the church and the trust governing the church, which is Celebration Ministries International. At this time, the Celebration Learning Centre Board adopted the decision to transition from the homeschooling ACE curriculum which CLC had been using for the previous five years to a teacher-based Christian curriculum, the A Beka Curriculum. The A Beka curriculum is a biblically-based curriculum of a high academic standard. The core subjects are English, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, and Bible. Art, Music, Physical Education, Life Skills, Spanish and Shona are also taught.
In 2015 the High School English department adopted the Bob Jones University English curriculum after being introduced to this curriculum at the annual ICAA International Conference.
In 2016 the CIS Board decided to incorporate the Cambridge curriculum into the High School and offer the British ‘O’ and ‘A’ Level certificates. This was in response to community feedback that the school would be more appealing with these qualifications on offer.
Celebration International School is accredited by the International Christian Accreditation Association (ICAA), under the auspices of Oral Roberts University Educational Fellowship (ORUEF) and Zimbabwe Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education.
What We Believe
We believe that every child is made in the image of God; therefore, we embrace our responsibility to educate students to realize their intrinsic value and achieve their God-given purpose.
Philosophy of Education
Christian education is rooted in the Word of God, and it starts in the home.
Deuteronomy 6:6-7 says, “These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.”
We understand that the church and the Christian school are an extension of the home and the godly teaching given by the parents. Because we believe that every child is made in the image of God, we embrace our responsibility to educate students to realize their intrinsic value and achieve their God-given purpose. We seek to develop global citizens with a biblical worldview, an insatiable passion for learning, academic excellence and a servant leadership heart, thereby fulfilling the Great Commission.
- Building people, building dreams, building the Kingdom of God
- To develop global citizens with a biblical worldview, an insatiable passion for learning, academic excellence and a servant leadership heart.
Love, Servant leadership, Wisdom, Integrity, Equal Opportunity, Honor, Excellence and Relationship
