We are a school of academic excellence that integrates the best of both the French and Canadian systems.

The success of all our students is a stated objective of the AEFE, the French organizational body with whom we partner. The approval granted by the French Ministry of Education certifies the compliance of teaching requirements, programs, educational objectives, and regulations of the French education system. This allows all our students to continue their schooling in any other AEFE school abroad without needing to take an entrance exam.

Our elementary school classes meet the criteria of group 2 private schools of British Columbia. The school is regularly accredited by school inspectors from France and from BC. Our preschool classes meet the Vancouver Costal Health regulation.

Our guidelines and practices are regularly updated to keep pace with the demands of our respective supervisory bodies as well as major developments in the field of education.

To ensure this level of excellence, we have created a cross curricular focus that allows all students to follow both programs without a need for repetition. We have achieved this by closely comparing each curriculum, integrating it into one, and complementing content where needed.

Throughout their schooling, students are offered a rigorous and challenging workload that is adapted when needed to assist students to meet their full potential. Our small class sizes allow for a detailed and individualized instruction style. The availability of a resource teacher for children with special needs allows us to provide a successful learning environment for every student.

Our elementary school prepare students for elite higher education programs. Our students gain autonomy, discipline, initiative, and sense of effort, all values that allow easy transition into higher education and the workforce.
