At St. Michaels University School, we believe many of the most important lessons - both intellectual and personal - enable students to discover not only who they are as individuals but who they can become.

Committed to academic excellence, we offer a range of truly outstanding courses as well as exceptional athletic, performing arts, outdoor education and extracurricular programmes. Our students pursue passions from creative writing to environmental science while immersed in an international environment.

Located in beautiful Victoria, British Columbia, SMUS boarders benefit from all Vancouver Island has to offer, from kayaking along the coast to studying botany on Mount Tolmie. Though the SMUS campus is in a quiet, residential neighbourhood, Victoria's vibrant downtown and its restaurants, art galleries, theatres and stores is a short distance away.

Residential life boasts contemporary boarding facilities for students from 30 countries around the world, from Germany to Barbados to Japan.

On-campus concerts, intramurals, poetry readings, sports and other events keep boarders entertained when school is not in session, and weekends offer an opportunity to explore downtown, go on trips with fellow boarders, and compete in inter-house games.

SMUS graduates attend top universities around the world and in Canada, from Yale to McGill to the American University in Paris. Our alumni are renowned athletes, actors, and entrepreneurs; our students are challenged to meet their full potential in everything they do.
