Student Life


Vancouver College, established in 1922, is a Kindergarten through Grade 12 independent, Catholic School for boys served by the Congregation of Christian Brothers in the spirit of Blessed Edmund Rice. Strong academic curriculum, high expectations, and a quest for excellence characterize a Christian Brother education. Vancouver College ensures that its curriculum promotes the harmonious growth of the whole person, fosters the development of higher-order thinking, and prepares its students for life-long learning.
