Lester B Pearson College of the Pacific is a memorial to the late Canadian Prime Minister and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize. The college is located on the Pacific Ocean at Pedder Bay, 29 km west of Victoria, British Columbia. The campus provides an ideal environment for the purpose, aims and philosophy of the institution.

Although the academic curriculum adheres to the formal disciplines of the International Baccalaureate, there are few formal classrooms. This reflects the college's philosophy that education is a dynamic and continuous process which should not be restricted either to the narrow confines of a traditional academic classroom, or to an overly rigid timetable. An important aspect of education at Pearson College is the constant intellectual and social interaction between students and staff of totally different cultural backgrounds. The five student residences and other facilities are designed to create a comfortable environment where students can share their varied international experiences. Students are from a diversity of religious beliefs and are encouraged to deepen their sense of spiritual values through inter-faith occasions, special programs on the different religious of the world and opportunities to worship in the surrounding communities.

The college year commences during the first week of September, and ends in late May following the IB examinations. Selection is made on the basis of both academic and non-academic qualifications. As a general rule students should have completed the equivalent of eleven years of North American schooling, and preferably be between 16 and 17 years of age.
