Shawnigan Lake School:
Shawnigan Lake School is a world-class, co-educational boarding school that offers advanced placement courses for Canadian and international students in Grades 8-12. Our rural setting, on Vancouver Island north of Victoria, BC provides an idyllic location for a learning community designed to discover and develop the confidence and talents of every student. The setting is a magnificent 300-acres in a safe, clean, rural environment that boasts sweeping lawns, gorgeous gardens, and excellent boarding facilities.
Co-educational Academic Boarding Programme for Students in Grades 8-12:
Shawnigan's academic program is university preparatory; the curriculum meets and exceeds British Columbia Ministry of Education standards. Both Honours and Advanced Placement courses are available. Subjects include English, Mathematics, Modern Languages, Social Studies, Science, Curricular Fine Art Studies, Physical Education Program, Business Studies and Planning.
Shawnigan is about opportunity, commitment, and discovery. Serious students will enjoy the challenge, the knowledge, the laughter, and the freedom of our classrooms. You can find superb teachers in every school, but the faculty at Shawnigan provides a combination of camaraderie, respect, knowledge, skill and commitment few schools can match. We have a highly qualified and dedicated teaching staff, guaranteeing a caring and productive teaching environment.
EDGE Leadership Programme:
EDGE stands for: Engagement of mind, body and spirit; Development of individuals; Gratitude that grows from awareness; and Experience, the most powerful teacher. This programme began as a Tsunami Re-building trip in the wake of the 2004 Tsunami in Thailand.
Out of this humanitarian outreach endeavour grew what is known today at Shawnigan as the EDGE Leadership Programme. To date, Shawnigan’s EDGE Leadership Programme has sent three teams to Thailand, one to Argentina and one to Laos.
Extra Curricular Sports and Fine Arts Programs:
Sports and Fine Arts are a mandatory part of the curriculum at Shawnigan. We believe that Fine Arts help to develop lifelong skills for students in drama, art, photography, sculpture, woodworking, dance, music, pottery, voice and community outreach, among others. One Fine Art, the Environment Club, has recently been augmented through the addition of our own salmon hatchery and on-site recycling and composting facilities.
Rugby and Rowing are a focus for boys and girls. Volleyball, field hockey, cross country, basketball, tennis, squash, soccer, swimming, and sailing are some of the other sports pursued. Shawnigan recognizes that students have different abilities, and we therefore offer various levels of competition. Shawnigan also has an active outdoor pursuits programme, which takes advantage of our natural surroundings through hiking, kayaking and camping.
