Leave here as better men: faith-filled leaders living lives of love and service who pursue excellence of mind, body, and spirit.
Vancouver College, a diverse and inclusive Catholic faith and learning community, educates young men guided by the Gospel values and in the tradition of our spiritual founder Blessed Edmund Rice. We commit to the development of the whole person, academically, emotionally, physically, and spiritually, preparing students for lives dedicated to faith, excellence, and service to others.
The Vancouver College values are embodied in the Essential Elements of an Edmund Rice Christian Brother Education. These Essential Elements serve as both our beliefs and daily calls to action. They centre us on our Catholic identity and faith formation, on collaboration and community, on respect and dignity for all, on educating the whole person, on personal excellence, and on selfless service to others.
