British Columbia Education System

In Canada elementary, secondary, and post-secondary education is a provincial responsibility and there are many variations between the provinces. As education is within provincial jurisdiction the curriculum is overseen by the province. British Columbia is one of the world’s most popular destinations for international students because of their world-renowned education.

Private / Independent Schools:

In B.C., children between the ages of 5 and 18 attend Kindergarten to Grade 12 programs at either an elementary or secondary school. Parents can choose to enrol their child in either a public or independent school that offers these programs – there are approximately 350 independent schools and about 1600 public schools. Many schools provide support services for students whose first language is not English. There are both short and long-term program options.

Independent Schools:
B.C. has many independent schools that offer a wide-range of choice: co-ed, boys, girls, gifted, special needs, boarding, alternative, etc.

Boarding Schools:
B.C. boarding schools are either co-ed or single-gender, serving all boys or all girls. Boarding schools are well known to boast distinguished teachers and an education derived from a top-notch curriculum. Boarding schools better prepare students for life as young adults at college or university.

Home Stay:
An option of housing accommodations in a home with a family in residence.

School System:
The B.C.school system is divided into 12 grade levels and two school categories (elementary and secondary):

Some schools may group together the higher elementary and lower secondary, referred to as Middle School or Jr. Secondary School.

Elementary: K to 8
Secondary: 9 to 12

Post-secondary:
Higher education in British Columbia is delivered by 25 publicly funded institutions that are composed of eleven universities, eleven colleges, and three institutes. This is in addition to three private universities, five private colleges, and six theological colleges. There are also an extensive number of private career institutes and colleges.

Universities

Teaching and research universities offer undergraduate and graduate degree programs at both the Masters and PhD levels. Some also offer diplomas and certificates in professional fields, as well as continuing education programs.

Colleges and Institutes – Colleges provide courses and programs in trades, vocational, career technical and academic studies leading to certificates, diplomas, associate degrees and applied degrees. They also offer programs that prepare adult learners for post-secondary studies. Some college programs allow you to transfer into university programs to complete an undergraduate degree. Institutes are organized according to career, vocational and technical specialties, covering a variety of occupations. They may offer credentials from certificates to degrees.
