St. Margaret's School (SMS) is Vancouver Island's only girls-centered, independent day and boarding school located in the City of Victoria on the scenic west coast of British Columbia, Canada. At SMS, we are focused entirely on girls' education, development, and well-being. We provide a personalized learning experience in an environment where students can be daring, gain confidence and discover their passions. Our student-directed programs equip students with the knowledge, attitudes, and courage to thrive in their studies, careers, and life.

At SMS, we know girls. We know how to spark their imaginations, cultivate their curiosity, and raise their expectations of themselves.

We recognize that learning occurs at different times and in different ways; our learning environment respects our students' diversity and supports each students' development. If a student is struggling, she will receive added support; if she is excelling, she will be provided with opportunities to stretch herself further. Our teachers consider the best approach for each student and address her learning needs together through personalized learning plans. We challenge each student to improve her performance, exceed her expectations, and realize her potential. Experiential programs offer meaningful opportunities for students to apply their knowledge and see the value of what they learn in class. Learning this way is less fragmented and takes place authentically through social, physical, or academic exploration and trial and error. Students can see how subjects are interconnected and develop skills and attitudes that could never be taught in a classroom.

Vancouver Island and the City of Victoria contribute significantly to the unique learning environment at SMS. Our school is in a safe, quiet neighbourhood, only minutes from downtown Victoria. Learning experiences extend well beyond our campus; our community is safe, our surroundings are beautiful, recreational activities are possible year-round, and world-class cultural and natural attractions are at our doorstep.
