To Learn, Lead, and Succeed
Southpointe Academy cultivates engaged, well-rounded citizens poised to thrive in their pursuit of post-secondary education and primed to achieve their full potential. Located in sunny Tsawwassen, 30 minutes from Vancouver, overlooking both farmland and the ocean, the School is a non-denominational institution offering coeducational, university-preparatory program for students in Kindergarten to Grade 12.
We offer the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP) and are an IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) candidate school. The College Board's Advanced Placement (AP) Program is offered to students in Grades 10-12, preparing them for selective post-secondary institutions.
Our mission is to involve, instruct, and inspire our students to learn, lead and succeed. We aim to develop outstanding citizens who are intellectually engaged, intrinsically motivated, and globally aware. Our balanced approach produces confident, well-rounded graduates, who are creative, independent thinkers and communicators. Our shared values of kindness, integrity, perseverance, respect and responsibility reflect our goal to be people of character and substance.
The Southpointe student body represents a diverse community of learners that come from the greater Vancouver area and across the globe.
Our well qualified faculty, many of whom have taught internationally, continue to build a globally focused educational environment where students are inspired to learn for a lifetime. After graduating from Southpointe, over 94% of the students are accepted to top universities in Canada, the United States and around the world. A further 6% choose to take a gap year with some having deferred entry the following year.
Southpointe students make meaningful connections locally and globally, learning additional languages in order to communicate more effectively. Emphasis is placed on teaching 21st century skills and engaging them in authentic inquiry into the world around them. At Southpointe, we encourage our students to actively involve themselves in all facets of school life: to cultivate their passions, to pursue their interests, and to build upon their strengths.
Southpointe offers a wide array of activities beyond their classroom to ensure a well-rounded experience for each of our students. A complement to our academic and physical education curriculum, our Athletics Program develops character, leadership, and interpersonal skills through student participation in a wide variety of sports. As participants in an acclaimed Arts Program, Southpointe students demonstrate creativity, dedication, and the ability to effectively collaborate with their peers. The School provides outlets for inventive thinking, allowing our students to push the bounds of their imagination.
