    History & Structure

    Sterling Education is a school system of excellence, comprised of 34 private schools located across North America in 18 states and 6 provinces. Currently the system provides over 600 middle and high school students ages 12-18 with an outstanding and challenging secondary education.

     

    In 2007, all campuses were connected via Virtual Classroom (VC) equipment.  This is an exciting program for Sterling students and staff.  In 2012-2013 we ran well over 100 classes by VC.  The follow school year, as the Regional Model was enhanced, Virtual Classroom Technology was pivotal in enhancing collaboration between campuses.

     

    In September 2008, ten Sterling schools began offering an elementary program consisting of Grades 3-5. At the beginning of the 2012-2013 academic year Grade 6, was incorporated into the elementary levels, bringing our elementary student count to almost 400. As of September 2015, all locations are now teaching elementary.

    How Did Sterling Education Begin?

    During the early 1990's, several education centers in the USA and Canada were established by Christian parents who, for a time, had home-schooled their children. Parents worked together to share tutors and resources. These early arrangements led to the development of a small system of private schools. Sterling Education was established in 2004 to provide coordination, expertise and a support structure for these schools. A uniform curriculum was created, built to rigidly high standards, allowing our schools to share resources and work closely together.

    Who Operates Sterling Schools?

    Sterling schools are managed by Christians, known as The Plymouth Brethren Christian Church.  At the regional level, each campus is operated by a regional board comprised of Brethren trustees, who liaise closely with their professional staff. These boards are affiliated with the central structure of Sterling Education, which provides a wide range of financial, legal, and curriculum support across North America. Sterling Education also employs a number of support professionals, guiding and supporting campus staff in the areas of Curriculum, Learning Support and Quality Assurance, and more. This arrangement gives the benefit of strong central support, combined with regional responsibility and control.

    Sterling Structure Today

    In 2011-2012 a new Regional Model was formally introduced. Six regions were forms under the Sterling 'umbrella', encouraging better communication sharing, and support between the smaller campuses within a region.  In 2013-2014 we took the next step, and by 2014-2015 school year our six regions re-emerged as three larger regions, each of which work with each other within their group as if they were one school.

    This Regional Model works very well, as sites are able to collaborate more effectively. Benefits include: regular regional Professional Development days for teaching staff, as well as Regional Athletic Days, Field Days and Regional and International Spelling Bee Competitions for our students.
