About Us

Georges P. Vanier operates three school programs; English, Continuing French Immersion and Late French
Immersion along with the Learning and Literacy program, which is integrated in the English program. We believe in a "Vanier First" philosophy, where we are members of our school community first before program.

We offer a strong academic program including complementary courses and daily Physical
Education. A highly acclaimed music program provides students opportunities to participate
in Concert Band, Choir, Jazz, and a Strings ensemble.

We have an active peer support program including one of the first Gay-Straight Alliances in
a Calgary middle school. Students participate in co-curricular and extra-curricular activities during our lunch break and after school.

We encourage learning in communities, where teachers, parents, and students make up the Vanier community of learners. We believe in student ownership and choice in learning. We believe in service to others, inside and outside the school community, and we believe in the capability and competence of young people.
