On September 21, 2020, following all our COVID-19 health & safety protocols, we welcomed our Elementary School Students to their new building, Lannon Hall, for the first time! We are so grateful for all in our community who made this redevelopment project possible.
Visit the Our Next Century website for more pictures of our Elementary Students' first day on campus and for an overview of the construction project that brought us here.
Picture Day is coming up at Vancouver College! We will be holding two sessions to accommodate our COVID-19 schedule, with students required to be in WINTER UNIFORM on their scheduled day.
Photos will be ordered online this year and mailed home. Parents are encouraged to visit Artona's webpage and check out our Weekly Newsletter sent on Monday, September 14, 2020, for more details.

We're still here...but our address just looks a little different. Please note that as we prepare to open our brand new Lannon Hall, Vancouver College's address has changed to 5401 Hudson Street, Vancouver BC, V6M 0C5. #vclearns
As we prepare for the start of the 2020-2021 school year, our Administration Team has been hard at work all summer, planning for a safe return to campus.
Our full 2020-2021 plan was released to parents on Friday, August 21, 2020. Further information can be found on our COVID-19 webpage which parents and students are encouraged to bookmark as a source of updated information throughout the academic year.
Although summer vacation is underway for our students, our construction crews are still hard at work on the new Lannon Hall, getting it ready for the 2020-2021 school year! Earlier this week our Elementary School teachers had the chance to walk through their new space and are excited to welcome all our students back soon!
