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 that 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.

Since 1996, West Point Grey Academy has gratefully resided on the Jericho Lands, the unceded traditional territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam Indian Band), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) Nation and sə̓lílwətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nation. Honoured to learn and play on these beautiful lands, we endeavour to be a leader in Indigenous education. In creating shared understanding and opportunities, we hope to help foster a more equitable society for all.
