“My job is to understand how technology is changing the world and help people deal with those changes. No previous generation has ever faced as much disruption as is starting now, and the old models of education - memorizing information in rows of desks - won't serve students or the world that needs them.

High school students are capable of more autonomy, innovation, and initiative than we have ever given them credit for.  I'm looking at you, Greta Thunberg!  They need a school that helps them unlock their power to become leaders and communicators, and to form teams to solve hard problems together. They need a school that has the outlook and ability to stay ahead of exponential change and rapidly adapt to both crisis and immense opportunity.

Westmont shows me that they get it.”

Academic Experts

" The teachers and administration are to be commended on excellent planning which confirms the Montessori approach to learning but also clearly reflects the modernized BC curriculum...the planning already extends to include a curricular and competency overview for the Graduation Program."

- BC Ministry of Education Inspector

Cutting Edge Program

Experiential learning comes to the fore and is framed by projects tackled through the model of design thinking. We bring you to the world both virtually and in person, by creating learning experiences in progressive environments that offer knowledge from the real world not a textbook – from business incubators to makerspaces, organic farms to ocean biology labs, university lectures to expert mentorships, local explorations to global adventures.
