Elementary School Academics

The Elementary School at Vancouver College fosters a love of learning for the students. Students in Kindergarten to Grade 6 are introduced to a variety of teaching styles from grade to grade, while their lessons are still rooted in strong traditional teaching values. The boys are given clear expectations for behaviour and for work expectations.

The Elementary years begin the road to learning and it is imperative that parents/guardians and the school work closely in order to promote the growth and development of the spiritual, intellectual, physical, emotional, and social attributes of each individual. Vancouver College holds close the Essential Elements of an Edmund Rice Christian Brother Education, and it is these elements that are entwined in the elementary education of the boys.

Children do not learn at the same rate. For this reason, the students are supported by flexible programs, learning assistance, and strong parent and teacher communication, in order to bring about desirable progress for all children.
