Centrally located in downtown Vancouver, Alexander Academy is a fully-accredited, independent, co-educational school. The Academy offers a culturally rich and an academically challenging university preparatory program for students in Grades 8 through 12, utilizing a variety of traditional and non-traditional approaches such as personalized learning, relevant out-of-classroom experiences, flexible scheduling, and the opportunity to earn advanced university transfer credits, while still in high school.
The Our Kids review of Alexander Academy
In many ways, Alexander is very much an expression of its context, namely the cultural and social life of Vancouver. The approach is international, drawing students from a range of cultural backgrounds, though also teaching with an eye to global communication and issues. The school is very forward looking, adapting programs to address 21st century literacies, and providing support for individual student success, including flexible scheduling. Academics are front and centre, just as they should be, but there is an attention to student life within the walls of the school and beyond. The location is proximate to a range of resources, including galleries and museums, arts venues, and transportation. The ideal student is one preparing for university studies.
