You are Invited…

Students from Courtenay to Ladysmith attend Aspengrove School in Nanaimo, choosing an independent school education for their children.  These families have chosen our unique community of small classes, motivated students, outstanding teachers and the world-class International Baccalaureate curriculum for their children. We are visiting your community to share with more families the exciting possibility of an independent school education for their children. We’ll talk about all the things that have helped more than 300 students choose Aspengrove for their education. We’ll share some of the ways our school in Lantzville can be a reality for your family and the advantages the International Baccalaureate curriculum offers students in all grades while looking towards post-secondary education.

While you are more than welcome to simply drop in, we’d love it if you would register using the form on this page. It would allow us to be well-prepared to see you. If you can’t make one of these dates work for some reason, you can also let us know on the form and we can schedule a visit that works better for you.

You are also invited to come directly to Aspengrove – there’s nothing like seeing a group of happy students engaged in their learning to get a real feel for the possibilities at Aspengrove for your education.

You’re welcome to just drop in but if you wouldn’t mind sharing a few details we can be ready for your arrival when we visit – or schedule something more convenient for you and your family.

We’re Closer Than You Think

We’re not far away – your children might already spend more time getting to school now. Located in Lantzville, at the North end of Nanaimo right off the highway, we’re closer than you think. 

Aspengrove already offers bus service for our many students from Ladysmith to Qualicum and for those from a little further away, we are committed to working with interested families to design a transport system that works for you. A student would spend less time on an express bus than many local school system students spend getting to school as their bus winds around town making stop after stop to accommodate all their riders.

Or Consider 4-Night Family Boarding

We also offer a 4-night Family Boarding option. You’re not sending your children to boarding school where they are busy 7-days per week and you might not see them for many weeks at a time. You might choose to drive them or use the bus on Monday morning and see them back at home on Friday afternoon. Four nights a week they would stay with one of our local families. Parents who already send their children to Aspengrove and will care for your children like their own. Nutritious meals, their own room, a place at the family dinner table and in all family activities. Our families will drive your son or daughter to and from school and ensure they get to any other activities that are important to you – a dance class nearby, perhaps, or a soccer practice; they’ll be there for them if they need help in any way. And all week long they will experience everything that Aspengrove has to offer, including the world-class International Baccalaureate education.

Why Aspengrove?

Our parents told us the top reasons they chose Aspengrove for their childrens' education.


Aspengrove offers a generous scholarship and bursary program. An independent school education isn’t free but we want as many people as possible to afford an Aspengrove education. 

The scholarships are awarded on merit – a combination of both academic potential and their commitment to their education beyond the classroom. If your child is a strong student who is involved in their school and community and wants to be a part of our community – we’d love to meet them. 

The first step is to come and learn more.
