Attributes of a BC Graduate

The Attributes of a B.C. Graduate articulate the desired qualities that individual students will have attained upon graduation. 

Some of these attributes link directly with the skills, knowledge, attitudes and behaviours addressed by provincial learning outcomes related to healthy living. 

As students move from Kindergarten through to Graduation, these attributes are a navigational guide to healthy living learning destinations for BC students.

The Graduation Program is designed to support every graduate to acquire these attributes. The healthy living performance standards will assist teachers and students to reach these outcomes in a variety of curricular areas from Kindergarten to Grade 12.

The framework for healthy living reflects broadly accepted practices. Appropriate ways of demonstrating these qualities may vary from one cultural context to another.
