CONTINUING THE LEGACY

Vancouver College is a legacy of generous support from families, alumni, staff, and friends since the day it opened in 1922. The Our Next Century Campaign consolidates all fundraising efforts of Vancouver College, the Vancouver College Millennium Foundation, and the Vancouver College Parents Association into one comprehensive campaign from the 2014-2015 school year until the 2020-2021 school year. The Campaign emerged from an extensive visioning process that resulted in a long-term strategic plan developed by the school's educational leaders. This plan is a key means through which the school’s academic vision of the school will be implemented.

Thanks to our many generous supporters, we reached the $36 Million mark. We look forward to raising funds for Our Next Century to get us closer to $43 Million, the actual project cost. For photos and videos of our campus redevelopment journey, check out the Our Next Century updates

BUILDING MEN OF CHARACTER

In the spirit of Blessed Edmund Rice, Vancouver College pursues to graduate men of faith and learning.

In this Internet fuelled, mobile, connected, and networked age of information, the role of schools and education is even more critical for today’s youth. Vancouver College sees its role as a fundamental and crucial one; a role that is much needed in the development of its students through a strong academic program based on moral grounding and value system that come from faith. Spiritual integrity is ingrained in students throughout their years at Vancouver College so they graduate with strong moral values and a sense of compassion, fairness, and social justice.
