Not just what, but how our children learn today won’t just shape the future of our planet: it will determine it. At Purcell Collegiate, we’re creating a learning environment and sociocultural opportunity that will connect students from around the world in a collaborative setting to a cooperate purpose: to engage their lives toward making the world more sustainable, more inclusive, more equitable, and more just.
What sets Purcell Collegiate apart? Our unique model, our state-of-the-art campus, our connection to the natural environment, our science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics programs, our connection to the Aq’am Community of the Ktunaxa Nation are only a few examples.
We are building a space where students can exercise their creativity and engage their passions with access to a wide variety of elective courses under the broader umbrella of the core competencies of British Columbia’s internationally-recognized curriculum. Advanced coaching and training opportunities and amenities ensure our student-athletes can match classroom successes with those at the ice rink, court or field.
We aspire to be a school of international significance, one that builds students into competent thinkers, communicators, and advocates who are personally and socially capable in all areas of their lives.
To inspire, enable and equip students from around the world to explore and realise their potential, developing the knowledge, skills, characteristics and habits that empower growth and prepare individuals to thrive, personally and professionally, in an ever-changing and rapidly shrinking world.
A world-class international school that sets the standard for transformative learning and sustainable living, providing an educational experience that is place-based in nature but global in scope, delivering a unique, close-knit community that nurtures social conscience and fosters leadership.
