“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.”
" 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
"Westmont's High School is a model of what education should be like for all children in our province."
- Ana Ver Waddington, Parent and Educator
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.
Drive or bus to spectacular nature!
Drive 15 minutes from the Westshore (25 minutes from Victoria) or take a 45 minute bus from Victoria to Westmont’s amazing forest-meets-ocean nature campus in the heart of Metchosin British Columbia.
Westmont is very excited to be launching its first ever transportation service for fall 2022. Routes and pick-up points have yet to be finalized and will depend on where families are located. This will be a fee-for-service transport option.
Partners are a cornerstone of Westmont’s new high school model. In our view, partners are the best way to bring valuable, real world resources and experiences to your education and personal development. For our partners, we provide an incredible opportunity to shape future leaders and contributors for their organizations and society. Did you know that Google and Microsoft are hiring right out of high school? Take that student debt!

Science Venture at University of Victoria is a non-profit organization that offers hands-on, minds-on science, engineering and technology learning opportunities for youth entering grades 1 through 12. Science Venture has been incredible at offering STEM focussed, experiential projects for Westmont students in our work this past year. Hand’s on integrated circuit design and coding to solve an ocean pollution problem is just one example!
Westmont is interested in and has started to actively explore partnerships with these organizations. Look forward to more announcements!
