Faculty & Staff Directory

Vancouver College's Administrators, Faculty, and Staff are led by the Principal whose prime responsibility as Chief Education Officer is the overall educational program at Vancouver College. Other members of the Administration Team include the Assistant Principals of the Senior, Middle, and Elementary Schools, and the Business Manager. Duties of the Administration team include admissions, supervision and evaluation of academics, extracurricular activities, long-term planning of academic programs, business practices, and financial stability.

VC's Faculty and Staff are dedicated and committed to each student to ensure that he achieves his personal best. As a faith-based school, all staff members play a vital role in creating an atmosphere of openness to religious activities; maintaining a physical and psychological environment where religious values are central to all aspects of education; and ensuring opportunities for counselling, prayer, retreat participation, service, and involvement in liturgical programs. The philosophical stance of Vancouver College is consistent with the mind of the Roman Catholic Church as stated in its "declaration of Education"; namely, to lead the young men toward a mature understanding of the purpose of life and to cultivate their potentialities so that they may fulfill their destiny.

All Staff Members may be contacted by email. However, for anti-spamming reasons, email addresses are not listed on this page. Unless otherwise indicated, a staff member's email address is the first letter of his/her first name followed by his/her last name and "@mail.vc.bc.ca" all in lower case. For example, John Smith's email address would be jsmith + @mail.vc.bc.ca.

VC Welcomes New Assistant Principal, Middle School

Vancouver College is pleased to announce the appointment of John-Paul Cavalluzzo as the school's future Assistant Principal, Middle School to begin in September 2019. Please see below for more information on Mr. Cavalluzzo.

John-Paul Cavalluzzo


Mr. Cavalluzzo comes to us with an impressive resume, education and work history. He has spent the past three years working at Collingwood School in West Vancouver, most recently as the Director of Intermediate-Middle School Programs.

He is no stranger to all-boys school communities, previously holding a variety of leadership positions at Upper Canada College (UCC), an all-boys, independent school in Ontario.

He has worked in positive, competitive sport environments, excelling as the Offensive Coordinator and Director for the UCC Varsity Football Program, as well as the coach of various basketball and track & field teams.

With a Masters of Teaching from the University of Toronto, Mr. Cavalluzzo has implemented a vision of education centred on what he calls the 4C's: Character, Community, Culture, and Curriculum. He looks forward to finding opportunities to weave the essential elements of Blessed Edmund Rice into these fundamental pillars. We are excited to work with Mr. Cavalluzzo to bring that vision to Vancouver College.

Mr. Cavalluzzo is a proud Catholic, who considers his faith foundational to his life. He is also the father of a young son, Hugo, and husband to Dr. Sofie Schlagintweit.

"Since moving to Vancouver, Sofie and I have always been impressed during our interactions with members of the Fighting Irish community, and it is these positive exchanges that inspired us to one day become members of Vancouver College. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to join a faith and learning community steeped in excellence and tradition. Being members of Vancouver College, means joining a team that we can be proud of, a team that is focused on transforming boys of promise into men of character, one boy at a time."

We look forward to having Mr. Cavalluzzo join Vancouver College, where his experience, passion for education and faith will positively impact the lives of our students, and many others in our community.

Semper Fidelis,

Johnny Bevacqua, Principal
