“I feel that Quinte Christian High School helped me in providing a superior academic base for the rigors of undergraduate engineering. Encouragement to develop my gifts in a variety of areas has helped me in succeeding in personal goals both academically and otherwise. I also feel that the spiritual encouragement and guidance helped me have a strong faith base from which to engage a new community at university and stay actively involved in a faith community.”
