Circle Square was a Canadian children's television series that ran from 1974 to 1986. Crossroads Christian Communications produced the series in cooperation with its Circle Square Ranch network of summer camps for children. Circle Square Ranches, founded by Crossroads, are Christian-based non-profit camps welcoming children of any faith and race. The first ranch was based at Severn Bridge, Ontario.
Mixing human actors—both youth and adult counsellors—with puppets in a Sesame Street-like manner, the series was set at a Circle Square Hotel library. Each episode taught a lesson in moral values.
The series was syndicated to television stations in Canada, the United States and Jamaica, often airing in a weekend slot on stations that also aired Crossroads' 100 Huntley Street. Reruns of Circle Square were shown Saturday mornings on the Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) until late 2005 or early 2006, and episodes of the original Circle Square program can be viewed on the Circle Square Ranch website.
In 2003 a pilot for a new version of Circle Square called Circle Square Network (CSN) was produced by Crossroads, but was never picked up.
Canadian journalist and talk show host Marci Ien of The Social appeared on Circle Square as a child actress at age 10.
