Xspace Unicademy Vancouver

Xspace Unicademy Vancouver is the Vancouver Campus of School Districts 91 and 27’s International Programs. The innovative blended learning program at Xspace Unicademy offers a full-time secondary course of study leading to graduation (BC Dogwood Diploma).  Qualified educators from the Xspace-SD91 and Xspace-SD27 instructional teams work together to guide students through coursework, while helping students develop long-term soft skills and offering personalized instruction that fits student’s’ individual needs.

Xspace Unicademy uses a “Community as Our Campus” approach to schooling, creating a university-like learning environment for students.  Students fully utilize the resources available in their community (public libraries, parks, recreational space, etc.) as part of their day-to-day learning experience.  Instead of isolating students in a facility, Xspace Unicademy brings students to truly live, immerse, and develop themselves in the real world.

Program Structure

The Xspace Unicademy Vancouver program is a 3-year program spanning from Grades 10-12.  The first year of the program (Grade 10) focuses on helping students transition into living and studying in Canada.  Students spend the first term in Vancouver building foundational English skills through various ELL courses.  In second term, students will be immersed in a true Northern BC experience – students will spend a term in a local school in Nechako Lakes, interacting with peers and culture in the heart of BC.

Grades 11 and 12 are spent back on the Vancouver campus, within the vicinity of top universities in Canada.  These final two years of the program focus on preparing for life after high school.  Students learn to become self-sufficient learners as they complete the rest of their high school journey with the Xspace instructional team.  Xspace counsellors also work closely with students during this time to provide guidance in preparing for and applying to universities.
