About Us

Alexander Academy is a co-educational day school for students in grades 8 – 12.  With a focus on academics, the Academy delivers the BC Curriculum in a culturally rich and academically challenging environment.

Established in 2013 under the British Columbia Ministry of Education, Alexander Academy is an independent private high school located in the heart of downtown Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

IB World School

In June of 2016, Alexander Academy was informed that our application for candidacy for the Diploma Programme was officially accepted. Alexander Academy is recognized as an IB candidate school for the Diploma Programme as of 1 September 2016.

We are pursuing authorization as an IB World School. These are schools that share a common philosophy—a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that Alexander Academy believes is important for our students.

Alexander Academy is recognized and accredited by the BC Ministry of Education and FISA (Federation of Independent School Association). 


The academic year is divided into two terms: Fall (Sept – Jan) and Winter (Feb – Jun).

Our History

Alexander Academy is named for Sir Alexander Mackenzie, the Scottish-born fur trade adventurer and author. Alexander Mackenzie holds a special place in Canadian history and it is in the spirit of his achievement and vision that Alexander Academy is so named.
