About Century High School
Century High School, situated in West Broadway, Vancouver, Canada, is an independent secondary school that was established in 1997. Now, under a new board of directors, the school continues to maintain a warm and caring environment while providing a dynamic secondary school program that attracts students from all over the world. CHS is officially recognized by the Ministry of Education, Government of British Columbia, and has taken the necessary financial precautions for student protection, following the ministry’s guidelines. All courses offered, spanning from Grade 8 to Grade 12, are approved and mandated by the BC Ministry of Education. Graduating students receive the government-authorized Graduation Diploma, enabling them to apply to colleges and universities across North America. The majority of CHS students have aspirations of pursuing higher education after completing their secondary education. To support them in their endeavors, the school offers an academic advising corner, where students can access admission brochures and calendars from various public and private post-secondary institutions in Canada. Qualified counselors and advisors are available to assist students in discussing their post-secondary options.
