What UWC Canada, Pearson College says..
UWC (United World Colleges) is a global education movement that makes education a force to unite people, nations and cultures
for peace and a sustainable future.
Today, UWC has 18 schools and colleges on 4 continents, the majority of which focus exclusively on the 16-19 year-old age group: a time when young people’s energy and idealism can be guided towards empathy, responsibility and lifelong action. These colleges teach the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma as their formal curriculum, a qualification that UWC played a major part in developing, while also emphasising the importance of experiential learning, community service and outdoor activities.
Three Unique Features of Pearson College
- Lester B. Pearson – Pearson College UWC was created to honour the legacy of Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Lester B. Pearson, a former prime minister of Canada, whose vision of peace and global cooperation inspired the founders of the school. Lester B. Pearson was recognized in 1957 for his vision in conceiving and creating the first UN multinational peacekeeping forces.
- Unique geographic and spiritual environment – Located on the mild west coast of Canada on the traditional territory of the Scia’new (Beecher Bay) First Nation, the campus’ forested and temperate coastal location encourages students to undertake challenging academic and experiential learning in both modern classrooms and outdoors year-round.
- Ecological Reserve – Pearson College UWC acts as the eco guardian for the world-renowned Race Rocks Ecological Reserve. Students learn through marine sciences courses, diving activity and volunteering on the reserve.
