The Senior School involves, instructs, and inspires our students in Grade 10 to 12 to learn, lead, and succeed. We achieve this with the support of a caring, inclusive learning environment, a dedicated, passionate and talented faculty, and the delivery of a world class curriculum.
We are proud to offer a wide range of enrichment opportunities to promote the growth of character and resiliency with all our students, 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. We want our students to develop a love of learning, a desire to succeed and a respect and compassion for others – not just for now, but also throughout their lives.
The encouragement to excel on multiple levels promotes independence, and a growth mindset in all our students that has enormous influence on their future success. This becomes evident each year as our graduates accept offers to study at prestigious universities right across Canada, USA, and the UK. And of our graduates, empowered and enabled by their achievements here, well over 95% study at their university of choice.
The Southpointe community is a pillar of strength and support for all, comprised of students, faculty and staff, parents, alumni and friends, and the well-being of every member is a priority.
Southpointe Academy challenges students to think innovatively, preparing them for a rapidly changing world hungry for innovation. Our rigorous academic programme delves beyond the expectations of the British Columbia curriculum to equip our future graduates with the independent, creative, critical and collaborative tools that well-rounded scholars require today. The enhanced and enriched nature of all our courses celebrates the responsibility of keen inquiry married to intellectual curiosity. We do not ask students to simply take a formula or a procedure and regurgitate it in different contexts. We encourage them to wrestle with underlying concepts and see how complex ideas function. Their curiosity spans classrooms, stages, laboratories, and playing fields.
