In today’s world, any student will benefit from an education that is social, hands-on, adventurous and challenging. Welkin College School offers such an education by being committed to the following ideals:
Small class sizes mean greater interaction between students and teachers. When learning complex material and for many, in a new language, smaller class sizes equal success.
Technology has been and will continue to be the driving force of the future. Therefore, we train our students to be knowledge and responsible users of technology in every one of their classes.
Being involved in activities beyond school is important for a healthy mind and body. We ensure our students are enrolled in local community clubs and classes to ensure they mingle with as many different people as possible.

Being able to work well on a team is not only an essential career skill but life skill also. At Welkin College school work is often a social exercise where students join together to experience success together.
In today’s technologically driven world, youth are losing connection with nature. At Welkin College students spend considerable time immersed in the natural splendor of Vancouver Island rejuvenating their body and mind.
The most important part of any classroom is the teacher. Every teacher at Welkin College is certified by the BC Ministry of Education, a rigorous process that requires knowledge and successful completion of a recognized post-secondary teaching program.
Learning inside of a classroom is only half the journey. British Columbia is a diverse province that offers educational experiences at spectacular locations. Each year we take students on safe and memorable trips that offer connections to and add depth to their classroom learning.
