Our school is located in the South Granville neighbourhood, near VanDusen Botanical Garden between Hudson and Cartier Street, in Vancouver.
Our campus is composed of three buildings: Lannon Hall, Manrell Hall and the Blessed Edmund Rice Hall and Holler Family Science Centre, which represent our Elementary, Middle and Senior Schools, respectively. These buildings feature three gymnasiums, a two-story High-Performance Training Centre, the Irene Manrell Theatre, two Learning Commons spaces, a Dining Hall, two libraries, and a beautiful chapel. The area surrounding the buildings includes an open space courtyard, two outdoor playgrounds, and a synthetic track and turf field.
In 2016, the school launched the Our Next Century Campaign. Thanks to the generous support of our community, we renewed and transformed our campus with the completion of Manrell Hall in 2018 and Lannon Hall in 2020, creating extraordinary buildings to foster boy-centred learning. The two new facilities allow collaborative learning spaces for students and faculty members.
HOW TO GET HERE
Our campus is easy to reach with public transportation. The R4, 10 and 41 bus lines stop a few blocks from our campus. Getting to our campus by car is also accessible, and street parking is available along the north side of West 37th Avenue.
VISITING OUR CAMPUS
The best time to visit our campus is during our Open House, which takes place in November. More information about the Open House can be found on our Admissions page. If you have any further questions about our school, please contact our Registrar, Mr. Michael Potusek.
