Founded in the Canadian tradition of multiculturalism and rooted in enduring humanistic values, City Vancouver Academy High School welcomes and affirms the dignity of all human beings. The work of strengthening equity and inclusivity requires deep listening with open hearts and open minds. We honour and affirm the experiences of our students, faculty, and staff as critical to building a more inclusive and beloved community. Finally, we take our moral responsibility seriously: to prepare our students to work together as global citizens committed to ongoing civil discourse, to aspire, to transform their worldview.
City Vancouver Academy High School offers programs that encourage students to give their perspectives, share their ideas, and learn from their peers. This discussion-based classroom model requires student participation and active listening. It is this development of critical thinking and student agency, coupled with a rigorous and comprehensive curriculum together that sets our students to become outstanding leaders of tomorrow.
