About SHAWNIGAN LAKE SCHOOL
Shawnigan Lake School is a world-class, coed boarding school for grades 8-12 located on Vancouver Island. It's the largest boarding school in Canada. 90% of Shawnigan Lake School students are boarding students. Its 300-acre campus provides a safe, clean, rural environment. The school is known for its caring atmosphere, truly a "home away from home," with traditions like shared meals in the magnificent dining hall and a supportive House (residence) program. The school offers a rigorous, supportive academic program, nationally recognized sports, outstanding fine arts, and programs fostering leadership, environmental action and public service.

"Shawnigan recognizes that students have different abilities, and we therefore offer various levels of competition. We also 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."
