About

I’m in over 100 schools a year, so needless to say, I have been impressed by WPGA’s unique blend of high academic standards and social-emotional learning.  - Rick Stevenson, WPGA Parent and The School of Life Project Filmmaker
Founded in 1996, West Point Grey Academy is an independent coeducational day school in Vancouver, British Columbia. Set on 18 acres, with sweeping views of English Bay and the North Shore mountains, we offer future-focused programs to 940 students in junior kindergarten to grade 12.

Central to our mission, Shaping Lives of Inquiry, Action and Joy, is our educational philosophy to develop the whole child, who, guided by creative, dedicated teachers and supported by our inclusive, vibrant community, is nurtured to achieve his or her full potentialacademically, emotionally, physically and socially. Our programs are tailored to each learner’s strengths and needs, and integrate technology, the arts, athletics, and service and leadership opportunities. The result is a rigorous yet balanced educational experience, which inspires and prepares students to be spirited, confident learners and informed, caring citizens, empowered to fulfill their life’s passions and effect change in their local and global communities.
