Pearson College UWC may have one of the most unique settings of any school in the world, here in the Pacific northwest rainforest on the West Coast of Canada, but it is the people – students, faculty, staff, volunteers, houseparents, and others – who make this a thoroughly unique and engaging learning environment.

We bring together young people and adults with a mix of backgrounds and experiences from around the globe. We consider every individual on campus both a student and an educator. Adults on campus learn from our global students every day. Our “teachers” include PhDs who lead university-equivalent sciences and math classes as well as maintenance workers who share the importance of sustainability in an exceptional natural environment.

On these pages, meet the unique and inspiring people who bring Pearson College UWC to life.
