This includes a range of positions. A traditional approach might, for example, go as far as emphasizing the nuclear family and complete abstinence from sex before marriage.

Briercrest's approach to sex-ed: Our sex education is delivered in leveled, grade-appropriate formats across our academic, co-curricular, and student life programs. It is designed to be holistic in approach, acknowledging the whole person by learning about how sexually-focused aspects relate to overall well-being. Our goal is to include inter-connected layers of sexual health, relational health, cultural and ethnic diversity, and Christian faith. We explore how sex and sexuality affect friendships, romantic relationships, family relationships, and our relationship with God.
