We host a full range of courses in all areas of the Ontario Curriculum.

As well, there are PROGRAM 2 ART, and three Specialist High Skills Major Programs (Aerospace, ADVANCE: Arts & Culture, and ICT) that attract students with different academic interests and passions.
Vanier serves a highly diverse student population & we are dedicated to preparing students to be successful in the Global Economy.

At GVSS students are challenged to analyze, reason & communicate their ideas effectively. The school is equipped with amazing multi-media labs, music and art studios, a flight simulator and high technology production equipment including a 3D printer and laser cutter. We support all students; from those wishing to study rigorous enriched curriculum, to students with developmental challenges.
Georges Vanier strives to instill a strong sense of community service and civic engagement in our students . Ours students' responses to local and international crises are testimony to their belief in serving others less fortunate. GVSS is a place where students come first.What Sets Us Apart
