William Nepveu, BCS'20
"BCS opened up a world full of opportunities for me and encouraged me to work for things I never thought I would even try. BCS shaped me into who I am today and I can’t imagine my life without spending the most valuable four years there.” Hear from Coco Jie
"I don't know if I have a personal philosophy beyond 'try to be kind to others.' I find that it's a pretty good one and it's been serving me well."
"I think there must be something in the DNA of this place [BCS]—so many of us still feel that sense of how meaningfully it impacted the people we became. And for anyone who feels that way, I encourage them to give back. There are so many different ways to support and champion a worthy cause like BCS."
"[BCS] is an experience that not a lot of people have the opportunity to take part in, and I'm very grateful for my time there. It helped me become who I am today."
"Success to me is not what people see on the outside. You don't need to be a professional athlete to be a successful person. Integrity and respect are two good habits for success."
“For me Cadets was such an important part of the BCS experience. This year I won Her Queen Mother the Queen Elizabeth’s Award for demonstrating ‘the most officer like qualities’. I’ll never have the opportunity to do something like that ever again.”
"On a daily basis, I'm amazed that students go halfway around the world to a place where they don't speak fluently the language. ...Learning a second language is incredibly difficult and it can take a lifetime so I can't say enough how impressed I am and how in awe I am of students who do what our ESL students do."
"When you see a student suddenly understand a concept... I would give the world for that."
"I don't even think I would be the same person if I hadn't gone to BCS, and no dollar amount can really give back the full sum that I can feel in my heart."
“At BCS I learned to open up to people. You never know who could help you grow or help you go through hard moments. Stay open-minded!”
"Whether you're here for a year or 24 like myself, enjoy every moment because [BCS] gives you way more than you could get anywhere else—it's truly a home.'"
“The most important thing BCS taught me is that there will always be change. People will come and they will go but that isn't a bad thing because although things and people may go, new experiences will come that you will cherish and embrace.”
"The way [my colleagues] take on teaching with so many kids from so many cultures and languages—I think it's pretty admirable to take on those challenges and to succeed the way they've done."
"BCS is the experience of a lifetime."
"Everyone here is so welcoming and kind, I will miss it so much. Everyone’s kindness is also what helped me join the 126374 + clubs that I’ve been a part of this year."
"Best boarding school in Canada."
