We nurture and develop students' passion for learning, preparing them for a successful future.
Southpointe’s educational programming combines the British Columbia curriculum with the world leading International Baccalaureate programme, which empowers students to take ownership in their own learning and help them develop future-ready skills to make a difference. Currently, we offer the Primary Years Programme from Kindergarten to Grade 5 and the Middle Years Programme from Grade 6 to Grade 10. Starting in September 2023, we will begin offering the Diploma Programme for Grades 11 and 12, making us one of the few schools in Canada to be authorized to deliver the IB Continuum Programme from K-12.
To promote the growth of character and resiliency with all our students, we are proud to offer a wide range of enrichment opportunities, such as the provision of cultural, creative, sporting and leadership activities that develop key qualities such as confidence, communication, leadership, mentoring, service, and vocational skills.
What is the IB?
The International Baccalaureate programme is recognized around the world as a leader in international education. With a focus on developing inquisitive, knowledgeable and caring young people who want to make a difference.
International Baccalaureate students consistently demonstrate the critical thinking and research skills needed to excel in their university studies - and receive admission to the world's best universities.
Southpointe students are motivated, independent, open-minded and positive global citizens. Does that sound like your child? Come visit us for a school tour!
Our Junior School is alive with energy, excitement and inspiration. The IB Primary Years Programme, in accordance with the British Columbia Curriculum, sets the stage for our students to explore, create, investigate, perform, wonder, be physically active, and collaborate. The PYP is a concept-based model that challenges students to engage with significant ideas to understand the world around them.
Southpointe’s Middle School is a warm and caring environment, delivering the IB MYP framework, an academically challenging and holistic education that enhances the BC Curriculum through engaging and personalized learning. Students learn 21st Century skills through global contexts to develop an understanding of common humanity and become internationally-minded young people who empathize with others and pursue lives of purpose and meaning.
Entering our Senior School, you will find an environment that inspires students to reach their full potential, promoting independence and a growth mindset that has an enormous influence on future success. With over 70 courses to choose from in Grades 10 to 12, including 23 Advanced Placement (AP) courses, following graduation, students are well prepared for the rigours of post-secondary education.
At Southpointe, we believe in beginning the post-secondary goals conversation early! Starting in Grade 9, students and their families meet with our full-time University Counsellor to gain an understanding of course options and future pathways.
