Headmaster’s message

As West Island College’s sixth Headmaster, it is an honor and privilege to be associated with this exceptional school and community. The school, established in 1974, offers a rich tradition of achievement and an enviable reputation as being progressive, innovative, and committed to excellence.

At WIC, we provide a stimulating learning environment that is both nurturing and challenging in all areas. Our excellent academic, sports and cultural offerings afford every individual the opportunity to shape their development as well-balanced, happy and contributing members of the community. Our school combines excellence in teaching, creativity in curriculum, and a highly personal experience in a technology-enriched learning environment.

At WIC, extraordinary opportunities such as international travel, extracurricular activities, arts and athletics are accessible to all students, and within our small school environment, they are able to participate and excel in a variety of fields.

Our students play an important leadership role within our community and graduate ideally equipped for post-secondary education and success as exemplary citizens in our global society.

The heart and soul of WIC is a highly-qualified, committed and passionate faculty and staff that strives to empower all our students to develop to their full potential, and attain the acumen, values, character and self-confidence to flourish as adults. Programs combine the learning traditions and modern best practices. Effort and ethics are as highly valued as intellectual growth, and all teachers are dedicated to instilling in our students the ideals of honesty, empathy, perseverance, and respect. They serve as mentors and trusted advisors for our students with whom they develop meaningful relationships.

I invite you to explore West Island College’s website and join us on campus for a visit, in order to fully appreciate the “WIC Experience” and learn more about how we are redefining the high school experience through our Advantage 21 Program.

I look forward to welcoming you to WIC.
