Principal's message

Welcome to Anderson Collegiate Vocational Institute

We embrace high expectations for ourselves and others while working with our school community to support students in developing their potential and future pathways.  Building on a foundation of respect, relationships, and resilience, our equitable approach to education, community collaborations, and connections; we are focused on centering our students’ identity and planting the seeds to support academic success, creativity, safety, and well-being.  By being culturally responsive and relevant, our staff continue to work together to create an environment where our diverse learners will prosper. 

“To teach in a manner that respects and cares for the souls of our students is essential if we are to provide the necessary conditions where learning can most deeply and intimately begin…” (bell hooks, 1994).
