SMS is the only all-girls school on Vancouver Island. Even if prospective families consider SMS first for other reasons, they quickly appreciate the benefits of a single-sex environment.

“Girls’ schools create a culture of achievement where a girl’s accomplishments are what matters,” explains the National Coalition of Girls’ Schools in a summary of its recent survey of young alumnae from SMS and other member schools. Years of research confirm that point.


The Benefits of an All-Girls Education

Studies suggest that girls who attend single-sex schools benefit in lasting ways as learners and as individuals. They achieve:

  • Stronger self-esteem
  • Greater self-confidence
  • Broader leadership opportunities
  • Higher aspirations

While girls’ schools have much in common, every school is unique. The SMS experience is distinctive because we offer:

  • STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Philosophy
  • Individual Attention
  • Experiential Learning
  • Student-driven leadership
  • International Student Population
  • Enriching co-curricular activities
  • Service with Love – “Servite in Caritate”
  • SMS is located in a beautiful setting: a green and peaceful 22-acre campus that is just 15 minutes from downtown Victoria, yet seems a world away.
