“Alcuin College is a school that I am very proud to be associated with on this project. The school is a vertically configured structure, the classrooms comprise of the first two levels. There is a third level which is an open covered space for outdoor learning and becomes an urban oasis for the school. The fourth floor of the college is a open and flexible space, it allows Alcuin College to stage important events including graduation and other assembly.
It’s also quite an amazing opportunity for the community because it’s been offered to various community groups to use periodically at no charge.”
In order to make a deep connection between school learning and real life, Alcuin partners with local businesses, community leaders, and other groups that reflect our diverse society. These connections allow our students opportunities to learn from, and learn in, a variety of environments in the course of their education.
We are very excited about further integration with the community as this is a key part of our educational approach and mission at Alcuin College. Our students and staff are thrilled to be moving to a new home, and to be good neighbours.
I want to say thank you to the North Van community for supporting our new campus.
