High School

What is NeXus?


High School is an exciting yet challenging time of navigating changes, understanding your identity, and discerning your life direction. During these formative years, it is important to be part of a supportive Christian community that encourages you to stay rooted and grow in your faith.


Our hope is that high school Christian communities will be a “NeXus” where students can connect with one another. NeXus is for incoming Grade 9 students to meet Christian upper years at their High School and get information about the Christian fellowship at their school. High School Christian fellowships are environments where students gather to grow in their faith and be a witness to their school campus together.

NeXus is a connection point linking two or more things.
