About Little Flower Academy
Welcome to Little Flower Academy (Girls only)
All members of the Little Flower Academy also known as the LFA, community pursuing excellence and making the most of their God-given gifts to make the world a better place.
Little Flower Academy (LFA) is an independent all-girls Catholic secondary school located in Vancouver’s Shaughnessy neighbourhood. Established in 1927, by the Sisters of Saint Ann, Little Flower Academy educates young women within an intercultural Catholic faith community to realize their spiritual, intellectual, physical, social, and emotional potential.
In 1858, five women of the Québec-based order of the Sisters of St. Ann travelled by sea to the Isthmus of Panama and up the west coast to Victoria. They set down in a small log cabin in Beacon Hill Park and began the process of establishing Victoria's St. Ann's Academy.
Principal: Mrs. Diane Little

If you need a little motivation to read books or lengthy passages, try the candy trail method. Place a bite-sized piece of candy, such as M&Ms, Reese’s Pieces, Skittles, Junior Mints, or gummy bears, beside every paragraph on the page. Once you finish reading each paragraph, reward yourself by eating that piece of candy. Positive reinforcement is a great way to motivate you and help you learn. If you don’t have a sweet tooth or prefer to stay away from sugar, choose something else bite-sized that you enjoy, like pretzels, dried fruit, nuts, or crackers.
