Curriculum

Immaculate Conception is a Group 1 Independent School. We follow all Ministry guidelines pertaining to the Independent Schools Act. We teach the B.C. Curriculum as mandated by the Ministry of Education. Every six years we have a Ministry evaluation, which reviews every aspect of the school. The level of funding received from the Ministry depends on our meeting and exceeding the basic curriculum and other physical plant and safety requirements. Please click here to read about the Curriculum. Our most recent evaluation took place in October 2014.
