WPGA Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Philosophy

At West Point Grey Academy, we value diversity and inclusion for many of the reasons we value coeducation: equality, social preparation, and variety of thought and discourse. We acknowledge and appreciate our differences in all aspects, including race, ethnicity, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, and abilities and disabilities, and encourage expression of personal experiences and opinions so that we may better educate, innovate and inspire. We are committed to fostering diverse student and staff communities and to ensuring all members of WPGA feel welcome, respected, and empowered to voice their perspective.

We support equal opportunity in our admission process, hiring practices, and educational and service partnerships; as such, we seek to enrol, employ and partner with the best talent based on individual merit and who complement our diverse community of learners.
