THE TEAM WITH THE TOOLS
Our student development office realizes the potential in each student
At Columbia International College, we believe a true education goes beyond classes and marks. Education should build character and prepare students for what comes next in their studies, careers and future lives. Such an ambitious goal can’t be accomplished without a structured program, specific resources and dedicated staff members. That’s why Columbia has established its Student Development Office, which is the only one of its kind among private high schools in Canada, to provide students with meaningful activities and experiences that give them the essential knowledge, skills and values for a bright future. Student development staff organize celebrations and events that promote school spirit, coordinate structured sports activities, facilitate school clubs, host workshops, and help students find volunteer opportunities. Staff also manage leadership training and make sure there are chances for students to practice what they’ve learned through student leadership positions within the college. Student development programming takes place in the school, residences and community.
