We are an independent middle school bringing real inquiry-based, interdisciplinary learning into the heart of Victoria. The cornerstone of our approach is meeting each student where they are at, allowing their interests and needs to direct their learning. Learners become engaged and inspired when they discover the power of their unique voice. It’s at this point where arcs of growth and ah-ha moments occur.

Inquiry is for students who have strong executive functioning skills and are ready to immerse themselves in an environment where they can finally explore what they are passionate about. This can allow them to take their learning deeper and typically exceed the BC curriculum, while having closer teacher-student relationships around similar interests.

Relationships with peers and teachers grow stronger and healthier when connections are made over inquiries. Each teacher connects with each student to build unique bonds that last for years. The advantage of a school embedded within a community is having access to approved mentors, peers from other schools, and educators of the world.

Life at Arc

There is school and there is learning...
We know the difference.

Arc focuses on nurturing the whole child, valuing the development of social and emotional skills along with academics. At different stages of their education an Arc student may study art, music, philosophy, and technology as well as the regular subjects in the BC Curriculum. Critical thinking, scientific literacy, and support for skills in reading and writing are emphasized.

There is supervised and varied physical activity every day. Activities include but are not limited to:

  • Walking or running
  • Playing games at the park
  • Dance, rock climbing, and soccer
  • Use of community facilities (such as ice skating and swimming)

Every day also includes time for play and rest, both of which are essential for children’s development. In all our programs, we seek to balance rich opportunities for intellectual growth with the time needed for children to absorb and integrate what they have learned.

Our Story

There is more than education here.

There is a team of dedicated, smart, and sometimes funny people collaborating together who brought this into existence. Some have depth in structuring sustainable entities, others bring expertise in education. Every one of them is passionate about giving youth more inquiry opportunities. It is this combined brilliance that makes this more than a school.

We currently offer teaching to students in grades 6-8.

And we know full-well our children will live a life that we can’t even wrap our heads around, to work jobs that haven’t yet been invented, and for organizations that don’t yet exist. This school has unique attributes that prepare students to handle the future.

If you are interested in learning more about Arc, we welcome you to explore our website or contact us to arrange an interview.

Inquiry Learning

Igniting students' interest.

Inquiry learning is a researched, proven instructional model that is engaging and meaningful for students. Instead of the teacher telling students what they need to know, inquiry-based learning asks students to construct their own knowledge through experiences and explorations.

There will always be a need for direct teaching, but overusing this instructional approach causes students to tune out or lose touch with their own agency. Inquiry-based learning can accomplish deeper levels of learning that build on student strengths and passions to actively discover knowledge.

With inquiry-based learning, students are guided through some or all of the follow activities:

  • Formulating a set of questions
  • Designing an investigation
  • Identifying and collecting resources
  • Developing explanations based on evidence
  • Sharing investigation findings
  • Reflecting on the learning process and outcomes

Our learning model motivates students to learn and advances their problem solving and critical thinking skills. Teachers monitor their inquiry process and provide guidance when they encounter difficulties.
