Experience the Boucher Difference

Student Life

At the Boucher Institute, we are proud of our interactive, inclusive and caring learning community. Our staff and faculty know their students by name, and our cohort-focussed learning environments encourages lifelong connections. Our close-knit community fosters incredible school spirit: students care about the wellbeing of their peers. Working closely alongside their students, faculty and staff offer timely and personalized support to ensure all of our students have the resources they need to succeed.

Right after my first day, I felt like a part of the Boucher community. The orientation played a huge role in developing relationships and a support network that will stay with me throughout my time at Boucher and beyond.
