There is no ideal WPGA student, as all children have talents and ideas that could contribute to our school. Students who are curious, who want to get involved in school life and who have a love of learning thrive at West Point Grey Academy. We seek to enroll students and families who demonstrate the interest and ability to contribute to our school’s mission, which is to shape lives of inquiry, action and joy.
West Point Grey Academy is at 4125 West 8th Avenue. You can enter our campus from 8th Avenue or from 4th Avenue. If attending a tour, enter the campus from 8th Avenue and turn right at the first parking lot. Walk up the path to the Junior School or Senior School.
The school day is 8:20am to 3:30pm (junior kindergarten ends at 2:30pm and kindergarten ends at 3pm). Depending on their involvement in cocurricular activities, students could start their day at 7am and end at 4:30pm.
We accept international applications; however, as we do not have boarding facilities, offer an ESL program or work with agents, a student must reside in Vancouver with their family. International student fees are an additional $3,000.
Both junior and senior schools have fully staffed study and resource centres to assist students at all grade and learning levels, including students with individual education plans (IEP) and those taking Advanced Placement (AP) courses. We also offer tutoring, note-taking and afterschool homework programs.
