Located in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, St. Michaels University School (SMUS) is a Junior Kindergarten to Grade 12 day and boarding school with a global reputation for academic excellence. At St. Michaels University School, we seek to employ and empower individuals who wish to forge impactful relationships and careers that place our students at the centre. We firmly believe that expanding our diversity while adjusting our practice will lead to becoming the community we envision – a place where staff and students share a sense that they fully belong.
St. Michaels University School’s External Programs Department offers an array of educational enrichment programs for all students. During holiday periods (winter, spring, summer breaks), the programs provide a learning experience for students aged 6-15 that emphasize skill development, cooperation, participation, and fun.
SMUS Camps deliver school programs to immerse international students aged 12 to 17 in Canadian culture while also improving their English language communication skills. We also have school groups join us in the summer, so there will be additional opportunities for work in the summer months.
