VICTORIA, BC January 23, 2020 St. Michaels University School is proud to unveil Floreat, an ambitious 10-year strategic plan that will reinforce and enhance its reputation as one of the leading schools in Canada.

Floreat, which comes from the Latin for “let flourish,builds on the best of the school’s 114-year history while looking to the needs of students through to 2030 and beyond. It is an apt phrase for a school that is in a position of great strength and which is now ready to begin a fresh period of growth.

“We are looking forward to implementing this strategic plan and continuing to deliver a transformational and truly excellent education,” says Head of School Mark Turner. “Floreat ensures we play our part in handing over to the next generation a school that will continue to provide outstanding preparation for the lives of the future.

Floreat is built on four Strategic Priorities that encapsulate what the school will focus on to achieve excellence and student success in all areas:

  • Foundation: We recognize the importance of being confident but not complacent in who we are, as we build for the future.

  • Preparation for Life: We will strengthen each aspect of our students’ educational experiences so they are ready for the world.

  • Sustainability: We will invest in our future from both an environmental and financial perspective that continues to position us well for future generations.

  • Community: Every member of the SMUS community plays a role in supporting our students and our school.


With this strategic plan, St. Michaels University School has aspired to be bold, to innovate and to strengthen an already great education to ensure it continues to prepare students for life.
