Seaquam Secondary // is a public high school serving the Sunshine Hills and Sunshine Woods neighbourhoods in Delta, British Columbia. Seaquam has remained in the top 100 high schools in British Columbia since its opening in 1977, many years ranking in the top 10 and top 20.
The school name was decided by a contest in which students and members of the community participated. The Board of School Trustees chose "Seaquam" in the end, which means 'the sun' or 'sunshine' in the Musqueam language.
The school opened on September 6, 1977 with 37 staff members and 633 students in grades 7 to 11. The number of staff was increased to 41 when one hundred more students enrolled than expected. Since then, grade 12 was added and grade 7 was dropped to meet the present 8-12 standard for high schools. A few of the original teaching staff still remain teaching in Seaquam.
On five occasions, the Seaquam Performing Arts Program has placed in the top six at the BC Festival of the Arts. Many Seaquam alumni have become well known professional performers.
The Seaquam Secondary Athletics program has won four BC provincial Championships, with the first coming in 2004 by the Junior Girls Volleyball team. The Football program subsequently won BC Provincial Championships three years in a row from 2006-2008. The Varsity Football Team won the BC AA High School Championship in 2006. This was followed by a BC AA Junior Varsity Championship in 2007, and a Grade 8 Tier II Championship in 2008. In 2011 The Senior Girls Volleyball team captured the school's first ever Senior Girls BCSS Championship by winning the AAA Girls Volleyball Provincials in Parksvile.
