Do you want more out of high school? Enter The Best School Year Ever® contest and you could win one of four scholarships for eighth through twelfth graders to study and live on campus at St. Michaels University School in Victoria, British Columbia for the 2021-22 school year.

At one of Canada’s top-ranked boarding schools, you’ll be challenged to get the most out of your high school experience, preparing you for college and for life. From diverse academic opportunities – including one of Canada’s largest Advanced Placement programs – to arts and athletics, SMUS also focuses on leadership and character education to prepare you for your goals.

If you win this once-in-a-lifetime high school experience you will:

  • Be challenged to reach your academic potential, learning alongside engaged peers and supported by outstanding teachers
  • Discover new passions or hone your skills in the arts, outdoor education, and leadership 
  • Make lifelong friends with day students and boarders from more than 25 countries
  • Enjoy the adventure of living and learning in Victoria on Vancouver Island, BC
  • Gain confidence and independence while living at an urban boarding school 

Don’t just take it from us though. Past contest winners are currently studying at SMUS and around the world, pursuing post-secondary goals they defined during their time at SMUS.

“School here is challenging, but it’s a good thing because it pushes you to your greatest extent. At my old school, I wasn’t pushing myself to see how much I could really do. Here, you see what you are capable of,” says McEnroe Jean, 2018 finalist and current student from New York. “This will be one of the best opportunities of your life. Though you may not understand what that means yet, once you come to SMUS you’ll get it.”

“SMUS seeks to find the best within each student,” says Leah Balter, 2016 finalist from Maryland. “Surrounding yourself with students from different countries and backgrounds is an irreplaceable experience; add that to a world-class education and what more could you want?”

Enter by December 6, 2020 for a chance to win:

  • One of two grand prizes – A full-year boarding scholarship worth $65,000 CAD
  • One of two finalist prizes – A boarding scholarship worth $45,000 CAD
