School Vision Statement

They Will Leave Us Better

School Mission Statement

Each Student, Every Day  

General School Description

Woodstock Collegiate Institute owns a rich tradition of celebrating excellence in academics, the arts and athletics.  High schools in Woodstock date back to 1841 when the parliament of Upper Canada voted to include a grammar school in Woodstock.  The original WCI building was erected in 1881 very close to our current location, with our current historic building being built in 1939.

Our building continues to benefit from facility improvements that include new windows, bricks, and newly renovated science classrooms. We have a completely refinished gym floor and brand new glass backboards. 

We offer three Specialist High Skills Major (SHSM) programs in Arts and Culture, Athletics Recreation and Leisure, and Information Technology. Our prestigious Musical Theatre program is second to none, attracting talented students from all over the county.  Furthermore, our schools is our district’s designated French Immersion high school with students from all corners of Oxford County taking advantage of this high-end language and cultural academic program.

WCI boasts multiple successful sports teams and clubs.  We are the home of the Red Devils and the pride of the Woodstock community.  The good ol' red and white is packed full of school spirit and enthusiasm.  WCI boasts a school size that encourages everyone to participate and to feel part of the school. This close feeling of community is the source of loyalty and pride in the "Red Devil" spirit. 

School Organization

In a typical school year, WCI is home to approximately 600 students. 

Co-instructional Activities

WCI students have the opportunity to participate in many sport and club activities.  Thanks to our staff and community volunteers, we offer a high number of sport and club activities.  See the Extra Curricular tab at top of webpage...many options for a school of our size.

Community Connections

WCI believes it is important for our students to become contributing members of society upon graduation.  Therefore, while they are Red Devils, we want them to begin to learn that role and responsibility.  We will continue to proudly support the Terry Fox Run, the United Way through the Stair Climb and the Oxford CAS/Operation Sharing through our Festive Food/Gift drive.  We also provide elementary students and our community at large with a fabulous opportunity to see unbelievable talent at a marginal price through our Musical Theatre program.

Measures of Student Achievement and Success

At Thames Valley, we believe that assessment and evaluation of student achievement are integral parts of the learning process.  Information gathered through assessment and evaluation helps teachers determine students' strengths and areas of growth in their achievement of the curriculum expectations.  It also serves to guide teachers in adapting curriculum and instructional approaches to students' needs and in assessing the overall effectiveness of programs and classroom practices.  A variety of methods are used to gauge student progress including: teacher observation, classroom tests, projects and other examples of student work.  For more information on our school's provincial assessment results, visit the Education Quality and Accountability Office.
