VSB's Mini School programs provide enrichment opportunities for highly motivated students who are Vancouver residents, consistently work at an Applying level and have excellent work habits. Students must apply to each program separately as per each program's process.
Each year over 1,400 students apply for approximately 500 grade 8 spaces in the Mini School programs. Acceptance is based on District assessment results, grade 6 and grade 7 report cards (if available), applications and interviews.
All Vancouver School District secondary schools have a variety of challenging and exciting programs and courses. Many schools have also developed their own school-based enrichment program for a wide variety of interests and abilities.
Mini-school programs begin at grade 8.
