Welcome to West Point Grey Academy. Located on the beautiful Jericho Lands in Vancouver, the unceded territories of the Musqueam Indian Band, Squamish Nation and Tsleil-Waututh Nation, we are proud to be a leading independent school of junior kindergarten through grade 12, with our growth and success rooted in our inclusive, spirited school community of students, teachers, families, staff, alumni and alumni families.
In one word, the WPGA experience is authentic. In our supportive learning environment, students are empowered to develop a growth mindset, with the goal of becoming the best versions of themselves. Guided by experienced and caring teachers, students establish a strong academic foundation that is enriched by our commitment to character development, global learning, social justice, environmental sustainability and emotional wellbeing.
The primary program lays the groundwork for learning at WPGA. Literacy and numeracy are the focus, with teachers using digital applications and kinesthetic/sensory tools to support learning. As students progress in the intermediate grades, they build analytical and problem-solving capacity through applied skills learning and electives tailored to their interests.
The Senior School offers students a seamless yet brand new experience on their WPGA journey. With personalized schedules tailored to their interests and postsecondary goals, students work both independently and collaboratively, developing the independence, skills and capacity to dive deeply into their passions and successfully pursue their post-graduation path of choice, from business, science, education and engineering to medicine, math, filmmaking, design, music and theatre.
Dedicated to fostering a rich and balanced educational experience, embedded with music, the arts, athletics, community service, and Indigenous learning, we endeavour to graduate open-minded, compassionate leaders who care deeply about each other, their local and global communities, and their own wellbeing.
As we celebrate our 28th anniversary in 2023-2024, we remain deeply committed to our mission, Shaping Lives of Inquiry, Action and Joy, and look ahead to many more generations of Grey Wolves.
Progredimini Confidenter. Go Forth With Confidence.
