Located in the city of Victoria, British Columbia, St. Michaels University School is the only urban co-ed boarding and day school on Canada’s West Coast with a global reputation for academic excellence. Students from around the world relish the challenge of an extensive curriculum, including Canada’s largest and most established Advanced Placement program.

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.
