It can be a noble desire for parents to have their children attend private schools and be well-conditioned in their primary and secondary years. In the GVRD, there are many excellent private school options. For example, there is St. George ‘s School for boys, and Crofton House School or York House School for girls. Co-ed private schools include West Point Grey Academy and Collingwood School.
While these private schools offer primary and secondary programs, admission applications are always required. In the application process, the school’s decision relies on student achievement, overall academic performance, SSAT test scores, and participation in social activities. These schools also look at a family’s history and potential to participate in community activities.
