At West Point Grey Academy, we value diversity and inclusion for many of the same 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, lead, innovate and inspire. Our core values—globally inspired, academically innovative, character driven, community spirited and intentionally balanced—reflect our steadfast commitment to fostering diverse student and staff bodies and to ensuring that all members of our school community feel welcome, respected, and empowered to voice their perspective.
In striving to deliver a future-focused education, which is to prepare our students to succeed in a globally connected world, to develop socially conscious leaders, and to generate and implement ideas and behaviours that engage and enhance our communities, we see diversity and inclusion as the ultimate teacher. 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 continuous, compassionate learners.
