At Okanagan Valley College of Massage Therapy, we prioritize four core values that guide everything we do: community, dedication, excellence, and professionalism. These values define us and shape our culture, helping us to create an environment where massage therapy students can thrive and reach their full potential.

Community is at the heart of our college. We believe in fostering a sense of belonging and inclusivity, where everyone feels welcome and valued. We encourage students to get involved at OV, and volunteer in the community. By doing so, students can connect with others who share their interests and passions, develop important social skills, and make a positive impact on the world around them.

Dedication is essential for success, and we strive to instill this value in our students. We encourage them to be committed to their academic and personal goals, to work hard, and to persevere even when faced with challenges. We believe that dedication is a key ingredient in achieving one's dream of becoming a registered massage therapist.

Excellence is a value that is deeply ingrained in our culture. We believe in setting high standards for ourselves and our students, and we encourage students to aim for excellence in everything they do. Whether it's academic performance, hands on skills, or personal growth, we believe in striving for excellence in all aspects of life.

Professionalism is another value that we hold in high regard. We believe in teaching our students the importance of professional behavior, communication, and conduct. We want our students to be prepared for the workforce and to be able to conduct themselves in a manner that is respectful, ethical, and responsible, in keeping with the ethical standards of a registered massage therapist. We believe that professionalism is a key factor in building strong and lasting relationships with colleagues and patients.

At OV, our values of community, dedication, excellence, and professionalism are at the core of our college's culture. We believe that by instilling these values in our students, we can create a learning environment that is supportive, challenging, and inspiring. At our college, we strive to help students become not only successful massage therapists but also well-rounded individuals who can make a positive impact on the world.
