Alexander Academy is a co-educational day school for students in grades 8-12. We are dedicated to providing educational programs that inspire students to follow independent paths to success. We recognize that each student has their own academic goals, learning style, passion, and talent. Our teachers are committed to ensuring that students have the opportunity to challenge themselves academically, enabling them to reach their personal level of academic excellence.
The academic year has two semesters: September to end of January, and end of January to June. We also have a summer intensive semester in July.
In March of 2018, Alexander Academy became authorized as an IB World School offering the Diploma Programme.
Alexander Academy is recognized and accredited by the BC Ministry of Education and FISA (Federation of Independent School Association).
The academic year is divided into two terms: Fall (Sept – Jan) and Winter (Feb – Jun).
