Schools & University

For a relatively small city Powell River has a good selection of private schools in addition to an excellent public school system for students from kindergarten to grade 12. There are two religion based schools, a French immersion school and an English as a Second Language school. Having Vancouver Island University (VIU) here is an added bonus for those starting a university education or who wish to improve their education with night courses. Last, but certainly not least, VIU hosts the Elder College, a program for seniors to continue learning.
