Bodwell High School is a Canadian private co-educational boarding school, offering grade 8-12 instruction, and university preparation. Founded in 1991, Bodwell High School is situated in a picturesque corner of Vancouver, British Columbia. The school is certified and inspected by the British Columbia Ministry of Education and is a recognized leader among Canadian boarding schools. Most Bodwell graduates (97%) successfully enter universities, and many of them receive scholarships.
While striving to fulfill the main purpose of education – attainment of academic knowledge, Bodwell also focuses a lot of attention on students’ physical, aesthetic and cultural development so as to mold students into well-rounded, balanced, young adults.
Our 6 L’s – Becoming well-rounded | The essence of a successful life | At Bodwell, we strongly believe that there are several powerful aims of education all working together to guide the development of young people towards a balanced character. This concept shapes everything that we do at Bodwell, represented by “6 L’s.” Each L is an essential part of the Bodwell experience in both the academic and boarding programs.
The "House System" – On arrival students will be placed in one of the six "houses" where these future world citizens learn about the values needed to live together, values common to many societies around the globe. They learn about fairness and social justice, non-violence and peaceful resolution to conflict, intercultural understanding and acceptance, compassion and service to others, and respect for the dignity of the individual.
