Private Schools in Victoria BC

by hwilde on August 14, 2011

There are several private schools in Victoria that you may choose to enroll your children in to benefit from various programs, based on different criteria. Boarding schools are popular with some families, often international students, or families where parents travel for work like the stability that a boarding school can provide.
Private boarding schools in Victoria include:
• St. Michaels University School is an independent, coed, k-12 school for day students and boarders
• Brentwood College, a co-educational university preparatory school for students in grades 9 through 12
• St. Margaret`s School for girls is the oldest continuous independent day and boarding school on Vancouver Island, offering classes from preschool through Grade 12
• Glenlyon-Norfolk School is an International Baccalaureate school from junior kindergarten to Grade 12
• Dwight International School, a coed, day or boarding school offering programs from grade 6-12, and
• Shawnigan Lake School, a day or boarding school located just north of Victoria.
If you want your children to be educated within an atmosphere consistent with your religion, you might enroll them at one of the faith-based private schools in Victoria. There are several religious private schools in the Greater Victoria area, including:
• St. Patrick`s Elementary, a private Catholic elementary school;
• St. Andrews High School is a private Catholic high school;
• Pacific Christian School, a non- denominational k-12 Christian School in Victoria and
• Lakeview Christian School offers daycare to grade nine in split grade classrooms.
Gender-based private schools are no longer particularly common, but you can enroll your daughters at St. Margaret`s School for girls if you would prefer them educated at an all-girl school. Glenlyon-Norfolk School promotes an innovative solution to gender-based learning. They separate the girls and boys at classtime within a co-ed school atmosphere.
These private schools in Victoria have much to offer to children and families who are living in Victoria and those who wish to educate their children here.


Victoria BC Realtor Heather Wilde was raised and educated in Winnipeg. After graduating from both the University of Winnipeg (Bachelor of Arts) and the University of Manitoba Faculty of Education she relocated to British Columbia in 1975. Her career in real estate has been successful due to her commitment to and genuine pleasure at helping families find homes and properties for sale in Victoria BC. Heather was licensed as a Realtor in 1976 and since then has worked hard to achieve a high standard of performance; consistently attaining a Victoria Real Estate Board MLS Gold Award. If you ask Heather, she will undoubtedly say that although it’s nice to be recognized in the industry through performance awards, what really drives her success is the relationships and friendships she forges with the families that she helps. Many of Heather’s former clients have become close friends, and many of her close friends have become clients. That says a lot about her dedication to providing professional service while maintaining a friendly rapport with clients. Heather loves to travel the world (preferrably on a cruise ship!) and also enjoys tennis and bridge during her spare time. As of January 2014, Heather has retired from her real estate career.
