Study in Gulf Islands School District

The Gulf Islands district is made up of 5 island communities, located in the southern part of the Gulf of British Columbia. The climate of the Gulf Islands is very mild and one of the best in Canada.

Some 600 students attend Gulf Islands Secondary, the District's largest school. The school contains a large international education program and a dramatic art school. The other schools are smaller and their schools have only 6 to 12 students.

The Gulf Islands International Program is committed to ethnic diversity and the results that emerge when young people from all over the world work together to create a better world. They pay special attention to intellectual and social development and for this reason, the program is usually an option for highly motivated students who value personal and academic development.

With a commitment to cultural diversity, the district has created four distinct programs:

  • Academic Study and Graduation Program
  • English as a Second Language Program
  • Cultural Awareness Program
  • Specialty Programs

The Gulf Islands International Program is based on the principles of global awareness, cultural understanding and personalized learning for the 20th century. The world is a better place when young people from all over the world work together in the Gulf Islands Program. We are a prepared, creative and professional community.

In Gulf Islands, dreams come true and there are no limitations to what you can do.

In addition to academic and cultural programming, the Gulf Islands International Program offers a variety of complementary programs, including whale watching, ski trips to Whistler, kayaking and surfing adventures, hiking and camping, night trips to Vancouver, and surfing in Long Beach.

The District's commitment to students is based on these three objectives:


  • Students must move towards greater proficiency in basic skills.
  • All students make a successful transition from school to adulthood.
  • Implement and build more improvement agreements for Aboriginal education across the district.
