It is my pleasure to welcome you to West Island College.
By exploring the various pages of our website we hope you get a
glimpse of the wonderful world that is WIC. I also encourage you to
discover West Island College for yourselves – through observations
of and interactions with the exceptional young
students who fill our halls,
through our outstanding faculty who foster the growth of our students, and through our exemplary alumni who are making a difference every day in the world beyond our walls.
I feel very privileged to lead this remarkable group of individuals, but it is our community as a whole that truly sets us apart. West Island College is a committed community of passionate, creative,
caring learners who recognize each other’s strengths
and support one another to achieve our individual dreams.
We come together in the pursuit of academic excellence,
but we stay together to celebrate our curiosity and compassion, our wonder and joy.
At the College we pursue a rigorous and relevant academic program in order to prepare our students for the world beyond our walls, but we also nurture strong relationships within and outside the school so that students will have the confidence to be their authentic selves.
We provide unparalleled experiences both within and outside the classroom so that students will have the courage to explore beyond their comfort zone. We celebrate all aspects of learning so that students will develop into the strong, independent, critical thinkers who will move our world forward.
BE BOLD. BE BRAVE. BE READY.
