Academics are only one part of our Vancouver College experience. We believe in developing the whole person, mind, body, and spirit through learning that extends beyond a classroom.
Our faith and learning community challenges our boys to explore their passions and engage in authentic learning experiences. Whether their interests lie in volunteering for the Door Is Open, joining the Debate Club, auditioning for the school play, or participating in athletics, we offer options that appeal to young men at every age and stage.
Each student's school experience is different. The variety of co-curricular programs and activities promotes a holistic approach to our boys' education and supports each one of them to pursue their own excellence.
To Celebrate the Value and Dignity of Each Person and Nurture the Development of the Whole Person
The co-curricular at Vancouver College have so much to offer and are only growing with each passing year. I can objectively say that the relationships and friends I have made over the years, in and outside the classroom, have forged a brotherhood for life. There is a great opportunity in attending VC. That is, the opportunity to forge your bonds and make your experience truly memorable.
