At Shawnigan, we are proud of our athletic tradition.
Our sportsplex is filled with championship banners and trophies and our alumni features a long list of athletes who have played for their countries.
However, we are much more proud of the spirit and passion of our athletes. Shawnigan teams are known for their respect and their work ethic. We know that high school sports are about the process, not the result, and that character is built throughout the season, not just in the championship game.
Shawnigan offers a wide range of competitive and non-competitive sports, meaning students can work towards university or professional sports, as well as developing lifelong skills and habits.
Most importantly, we believe deeply in the values gained through sport, and in the transfer of those values to academics, residential life, leadership and service.
Thanks in part to our first-rate facilities, we have forged partnerships with community groups and national programs. These agreements bring local athletes and national teams to train at our school and in our community, as we aim to inspire our young athletes, build positive community relationships, and support Team Canada!
Shawnigan Lake School is a co-educational boarding school on Vancouver Island in British Columbia. The school is home to nationally-ranked academics, arts and athletics, with 100 per cent of graduates accepted to university.
