CONTINUING OUR LEGACY
We are planning for the education of our boys today, and also for those to come in our next century. Some of our facilities – particularly Lannon and McCormack Halls, built in the 1920s – have served us very well, but are now at the end of their lifespans and need to be replaced. We are the beneficiaries of a tremendous legacy of generosity and dedication of generations of parents, alumni and friends who wholeheartedly believed in a Vancouver College education.
It’s now our turn to continue this legacy.
OUR NEXT CENTURY CAMPAIGN
Vancouver College is a legacy of generous support from parents, 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 $36 million campaign from the 2014-2015 school year until the 2018-2019 school year. The Campaign has emerged from the vision and strategic plans developed by the College over the last five years, and are a key means through which the academic vision of the school will be implemented.
BUILDING OUR FUTURE
Our Campus Redevelopment Plan flows from our mission, vision, and strategic plan and is the culmination of many years of deliberation and development. As a result of our successful educational visioning process conducted in the spring of 2015 with teachers and parents, our architects, Acton Ostry, have developed a Campus Master Plan, which the Board of Vancouver College Limited approved in September.
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.
The school’s Administrators and faculty, led by the school’s Principal, Johnny Bevacqua, are committed to offering relevant curricula with educational objectives that prepare students for life after Vancouver College.
