City Vancouver Academy is an academic-oriented Canadian private high school located in the heart of Richmond, B.C. We offer a comprehensive curriculum that includes a variety of grade 10, 11, and 12 courses necessary for high school graduation. All of these courses are recognized and regulated by the BC Ministry of Education.

Our academic year is divided into four semesters: two 2.5-month semesters (Autumn and Winter) one 2-month semester (Summer – May), and one 1.5-month semester (Summer – July) .

In addition to academic success, we also focus on student development beyond academia. At City Vancouver Academy, students will be given a variety of leadership opportunities that will not only make them competitive university applicants, but will also shape them into the leaders of tomorrow.

Our Vision

City Vancouver Academy is an educational institution committed to fostering a learning environment of high academic achievement through a holistic approach that emphasizes the emotional, intellectual and individual development of each student, inspiring them to reach their personal best. Helping to retain the value of each student’s cultural heritage through the British Columbia Ministry of Education’s education program, we aim to strengthen bonds of friendship and cooperation between communities and countries. Our end goal is to create an environment in which students are safe, accepted and respected so that they may achieve their goals and enact positive social change.
