About Us

We believe that a balanced education supports children
to be well rounded, self-motivated and independent people.

Our School

We are proud to offer quality Academic programs based on the BC Curriculum guidelines. Our facility is one of the most inviting and inspiring spaces Central Vancouver Island has to offer. Our facility is on acreage located in Arrowsmith, not far from Hamilton Marsh. We have many fascinating outdoor destinations to explore, with a diverse choice of on-site learning locations. Our small class sizes support each student to be inspired, engaged, and challenged as an individual; bringing out the best in your child.

Our Approach

We believe that a balanced education supports children to be well-rounded, self-motivated and independent people. Our program teaches strong academics, enhanced with practical life skills, independent thinking, community interaction, and self-care. Beyond the BC curriculum our students learn skills in agriculture, cooking, outdoor regional studies, sustainability, music, drama and Art. They experience smaller class sizes allowing for individual attention. And learn by doing, in an environment that is fun, with a purpose.
