Senior School Academics

As a university preparatory day school, Southridge provides a stimulating, diverse academic 8-12 program with an enriched curriculum well beyond BC Ministry of Education guidelines.

While we strongly focus on building a sound knowledge base for our students, we are equally committed to nurturing the development of relevant skills and essential attitudes that will allow them to prosper as well-informed, thoughtful, principled citizens who take responsibility for making a difference in the world.

The development of sound character and personal integrity is central to our academic mandate, as it is in all areas of school life. Sound character and integrity guide the useful application of knowledge in contributing to community, one of Southridge’s guiding principles.

We therefore hold our students to the highest standards of honesty and trust in the academic - and every other - realm. Our teachers take every opportunity to challenge, motivate, and inspire each student towards academic excellence, personal fulfilment, and compassion for others.
