Introduction

A great independent boarding school in America. St. Michaels University School in Victoria offer excellent academic and extra curricular programme. Boarding grades 8-12. SMUS is sometimes called "the urban boarding school" because of its central location. Students are walking distance from a major mall and multiple places to eat, as well as a quick bus or bike ride away from downtown, nearby athletic facilities, and more. Victoria citizens have a reputation for being eco-conscious, friendly Canadians who love their city. The academic day ends at 3:25 pm and you can spend your extra-curricular time on any number of clubs, teams and projects available both on campus and off. You are free to join SMUS athletic teams, take up rock climbing, practice yoga, or train in the supervised weight room. You could also play squash on our brand new courts, attend tennis lessons or audition for the school musical (held every spring). Some students take part in residential life by organizing activities for their housemates, inventing new ways to save energy with the E-team or strategizing for House Games. You also have the option of completing homework, enjoying some free time or hanging out with friends in the boarding house or at any one of the local coffee shops. Weekends. Weekends present a chance for you to take a break from your studies. Houseparents offer trips to the movies, museums, the beach, swimming, skating, shopping and more. Alternatively, with permission from your houseparent, you can leave campus to explore the city, the Island and the west coast. Brown Hall serves a special brunch on Saturday and Sunday. One Sunday per month, our Chaplain offers an interdenominational chapel service. It includes music, quiet time and short motivational talks on various topics such as dealing with a difficult roommate, communication, or compassion. After the chapel service, all boarders assemble in the gym or on the sports field to compete for house points – and glory – in House Games. You will have the chance to show off your talent in basketball, dodgeball, volleyball, badminton, trivia, soccer, ultimate frisbee and more. 2012 Results 245 students wrote a total of 650 papers across 25 different subjects.
