Welcome to Southpointe Academy. We are an independent school in the beautiful Delta area of British Columbia, not far from Vancouver but far enough to be rural, safe, and peaceful. We have students from Pre-school to Grade 12 who all aspire to go to university. We aspire to ensure that they will! We are not big on bells and whistles, but we are huge on affordability, great teaching and phenomenal enrichment activities, so we produce exceptional results.
Our core values are respect, integrity, partnership, performance and passion, through which we strive to create a school of happy excellence. If these values match those you seek for your child, we look forward to meeting you.
Southpointe Academy will be a place of happy excellence, a leader in learning, and an inspiration to educators everywhere. From an open entry, all our students will flourish and succeed, so that when they graduate, they will have qualified for university and be ready for life. They will have a choice of futures, the integrity to choose the right one, the work ethic to create the path to the future they choose, and the support of their school forever.
Our mission is to be a physically and psychologically safe learning community. We aim to develop the professional capabilities of our staff to enable the learning of our students. We expect our students to work hard and to participate in a wide range of activities. We expect them to become academically capable, artistically aware, athletically adept, and personally responsible. We will create and nurture the conditions for our students to develop an understanding of their world and how it works; of themselves, their capabilities, and their aptitudes; and of the way to lead a happy life.
The ideals defined in the school's mission statement are achieved by:
Maintaining an environment of respect, tolerance and truthfulness;
Providing a full range of academic courses preparing students for success at university;
Providing structured athletics and a vibrant fine-arts program where appreciation, participation and skills development are accomplished;
