Intellectual stimulation combined with exceptional athletic, performing, and visual arts, outdoor education, extracurricular, and service and leadership programs make SMUS the place where motivated students cultivate their full potential in everything they do. Boarders enjoy access to activities exclusive to an urban center – sporting events, concerts, galleries, and museums – while endless outdoor pursuits are just outside your door.

SMUS is also the home of The Best School Year Ever® contest, a yearly event that asks students from across North America to submit an entry for a chance to win boarding scholarships (including two grand prizes of a full year’s tuition and board) to St. Michaels University School.
