An enriched class at WIC means that teachers build excitement and engage each student by providing real-world applications to the subject being taught and by combining best practices for technology-enhanced and active learning teaching methods.
West Island College is a non-profit organization that was founded in 1974 by Terry D. Davies, in response to the need for an academic program dedicated to preparing students for post secondary studies and for the reality of contemporary Canadian society. The College was first established in Pointe-Claire, Quebec, and moved to its present location in 1978 to accommodate its growing student body.
Throughout the College’s history, it has met with outstanding success in each of its pursuits. This fact is easily substantiated by the College’s rapid growth. The original campus, from a modest genesis of 40 students, now accommodates 400 students in a custom built school.
Today, WIC is two schools under the same roof: a French school and an English School. Both schools deliver an enriched curriculum and mother-tongue language courses and seamlessly coexist to offer the ultimate bilingual experience for students of all backgrounds. For over 40 years, we have been defining the educational experience through innovative teaching methods delivered in a technology infused environment.
At WIC, we are committed to the pursuit of excellence, fostering a passion for knowledge and instilling fundamental values that empower our students to succeed in the ever-challenging environment of today and tomorrow.
