At St. Michaels University School, we believe many of the most important lessons both intellectual and personal enable students to discover not only who they are as individuals but who they can become. Committed to academic excellence, we offer a range of truly outstanding courses as well as exceptional athletic, performing arts, outdoor education and extracurricular programs.
SMUS graduates attend top universities around the world and in Canada, from Yale to McGill to Oxford. Our alumni are renowned athletes, actors, and entrepreneurs; our students are challenged to meet their full potential in everything they do.
SMUS challenges and engages its students intellectually, in and out of the classroom. All students expand their potential in many areas, especially leadership. One of the first schools in Canada to adopt the Advanced Placement program, we now offer 24 AP subjects that allow our students to pursue their passions to the highest degree.
Our award-winning faculty engages students on a daily basis, constantly integrating new techniques and approaches into their classrooms and taking an interest in each and every student that passes through their doors. Through our Scholar in Residence program, our students learn from guest speakers who are experts in everything from international economics to documentary film. SMUS prepares its students for both post-secondary education and for life in an ever-changing world.

With the support of a dedicated faculty, we offer a huge variety of clubs and councils where students contribute to life on campus.
SMUS offers five areas of leadership development: principles of leadership, service, sustainability, global responsibility and experiential/outdoor education.
