About Vancouver College

Welcome to Vancouver College

Vancouver College is served by the Congregation of Christian Brothers and held in trust and operated by Vancouver College Limited. Vancouver College is an educational community based on the Gospels of Jesus in the charism of Edmund Rice. Edmund Rice was an Irish businessman who used his considerable wealth to begin a system of schools and a Religious Order, the Christian Brothers, whose mission is to help the less fortunate break the cycle of their poverty through education of the heart, mind, body, and soul. On November 2, 2007, Vancouver College officially opened the Holler Family Science Centre and the new South Gym. The facilities were blessed by The Most Rev. Raymond Roussin, SM, the former archbishop of Vancouver. They consist of four brand-new science classrooms, a "super" laboratory, a greenhouse, a new gymnasium, and several offices and classrooms serving the school's curricular and extra-curricular interests.

Principal: Daryl Weaver

Vancouver College students are facilitated in reaching their full potential, academically, personally, spiritually, and in their endeavors, through guidance and support offered by the Department of Student Services and The Learning Centre, the Campus Ministry Team, and a School Chaplain.
