"West Coast Academy has given me what school could not. It challenges me to question the world, to reach out in hopes of grasping a new, undiscovered idea. It has provided me with an avenue to pursue academic material in a warm, inviting atmosphere—a stark contrast against the bleak concrete walls of most schools. Above all, the program has instilled a newfound confidence in myself."

The college application process is extremely competitive. To earn admittance to elite universities, students need exceptional high school GPA’s, evidence of extracurricular excellence, a strong record of service to the community, high SAT™, SAT™ Subject, and AP™ scores, and memorable college application essays. To stay on track, find the right opportunities, and overcome academic hurdles, students often need the guidance of an academic counsellor.
We take an interdisciplinary approach to education. Our students study literature, rhetoric, ethics, history, philosophy, comparative politics, ecology, physics, neurology, sociology, psychology, linguistics, and current events. The objective is to develop an understanding of the world that is rooted in contemporary knowledge, theories, and problems. In the meantime, students learn the foundations necessary for many AP™ exams. Our comprehensive approach is what makes us the premier choice for SAT in Surrey.

Unfortunately, there is significant gap between the critical reading, writing, and thinking skills that universities expect students to have and the actual skills that high schools are developing in their students. Luckily, our Core Curriculum (designed by university professors for high school students) can close this gap. In doing so, it will also lead to significant improvements in SAT™ and AP™ scores.
