West Island College
At West Island College incredible opportunities happen every day, in an environment where learning is tailored to each individual student; where relationships are nurtured through effective teamwork and collaboration; and where students are immersed in a community of enthusiastic learners. West Island College is a university-preparatory school that emphasizes respect, responsibility and citizenship. We believe that inspiring our students to pursue excellence in academics, leadership, athletics and global awareness prepares them for success in the 21st century. In addition to exceptional teachers, an Advanced Placement program, small class sizes and extensive co-curricular activities, WIC offers courses in French (Immersion or Second Language) and Spanish (Second Language). At WIC, the heart of our vision involves each student participating in unparalleled and diverse learning opportunities in captivating, relevant and rigorous curriculum. Our students are encouraged to follow their passions, expand their creativity, and take on new challenges. Furthermore, WIC students and their parents enhance WIC’s culture of caring, of commitment and of community. From our International Studies program and authentic student leadership opportunities to Outdoor Education and WIC’s Business, Health Sciences and Engineering Institutes, students are challenged to go beyond their comfort zones and discover what hands-on learning really means. WIC is dedicated to inspiring our students, not only through our academic courses, timetabling and extraordinary experiential opportunities, but through our physical environment and student supports. A WIC education not only builds a strong knowledge base but inspires students to connect their passions to purpose for the rest of their lives.
