Vancouver College is excited to announce the appointment of Mr. Frank Trentadue as the school's incoming Senior School Assistant Principal to begin September 2020.
No stranger to Catholic, all-boys schools, Mr. Trentadue comes to us with over 30 years of experience from St. Michael's College School in Ontario, with a Masters of Coaching Education and Leadership from Ohio University and a Bachelor of Education from Saint Francis Xavier.
He most recently held the position of Director of Student Affairs and prior to that worked as a Classroom Teacher, Guidance Counselor, and Director of the School's International Summer Academy, providing students with various opportunities to study abroad.
Active in athletics, Mr. Trentadue has coached Football, Hockey, Soccer, and Track and Field Teams, capturing eight Provincial High School Football Championships throughout his career, including a three-peat in 2006, 2007, and 2008.
Motivated by student wellness, academic achievement, leadership opportunities, and community service, Mr. Trentadue characterizes his leadership style as "relational, servant, and motivational." Well versed in the curriculum surrounding "Deep Learning", Mr. Trentadue has developed several programs focused on the physical and mental wellbeing of his students, emphasizing the principles of Social Emotional Learning and Character Education.
Mr. Trentadue is looking forward to using his experience and knowledge to develop new experiences for Vancouver College students while helping our community "usher in the next century".
"I have had some interaction with some of the faculty of VC and I am impressed with their dedication to Catholic education, service to their community, and passion for their vocation. I am excited about the prospect of forming positive relationships with staff, faculty, and students while working together to graduate young men devoted to lives of faith, character, and service. My wife, Daniela, and I are eager and enthusiastic about making this life-changing move to Vancouver."
Mr. Daryl Weaver, the current Senior School Assistant Principal and future Principal of Vancouver College, believes "Mr. Trentadue's unique combination of curricular innovation focussed on deep learning and his faith-filled, student-centered approach to educating the whole person will make him a strong educational leader of our talented, dedicated Senior School faculty and an incredible asset to our Administrative Team."
Please join me in welcoming Mr. Frank Trentadue into our faith and learning community.
President-Elect, Vancouver College
