Top 5 Reasons to Apply to St. Margaret's

It’s the time of year to start exploring options for your daughter(s) education and that means shopping around for the perfect fit for your family. One of the best ways to do that is by attending an Open House.

At St. Margaret’s School, attending an Open House will give you a chance to take a tour of our beautiful campus tucked away in one of the most serene and tranquil learning environments on Vancouver Island. You will also gain insight into what is happening in our classrooms and hear first-hand from our girls about their experiences at SMS.

As you begin the application process, here are the five top reasons we think your daughter should consider applying to SMS.

  1. She is eager to participate beyond the classroom.

    At SMS girls are provided with not just MANY opportunities, but EVERY opportunity to develop their leadership skills while building their self-confidence and broadening their interests.
  2. She has a positive attitude and a global vision.

    Through experiential learning and exposure to diverse cultural environments, our girls develop confidence and global competency.
  3. She strives to be her best.

    Our girls are empowered to build the qualities of teamwork, integrity, courage and excellence through our dynamic curriculum and culture of achievement.
  4. She can and will be given a chance.

    We cultivate an inspirational and supportive learning environment where girls take centre stage and are challenged to achieve their full potential.
  5. She is curious to explore and take risks.

The all-girls environment fosters risk taking in a way that can’t be replicated in a co-ed environment. Our girls have no fear of stepping outside of their comfort zone, and are always prepared to take on new and unfamiliar challenges.

We encourage you to explore our website and social media channels to learn more about our innovative programs, diverse co-curricular activities, and outstanding student leadership opportunities. You will begin to discover what makes SMS unique.

We welcome new students and families to join our community. As you consider SMS, we encourage you to call us with your questions, visit, and keep in touch as you begin the admissions process.
