St. Edmund's School is among the oldest Roman Catholic Schools in the Greater Vancouver Area, having opened in 1911. At that time, the dedicated Sisters of the Child Jesus, along with lay teachers and support staff, ran the school. Although the school has celebrated its centennial, the mission of St. Edmund's has changed very little – we still focus on the importance of building a faith community. As a Catholic school we share in the mission of the Church and believe that Christ's teaching must be "lived" as well as "taught". Our school is in the beautiful and scenic city of North Vancouver, near a myriad of shops, art galleries, dining, parks, hiking trails, and the bustling Lonsdale Quay Market. Other popular sites and attractions in the North Shore include Deep Cove, St. Mark’s Summit, Quary Rock, and the Grouse Grind. To learn more, visit: www.stedmunds.ca
