The Sooke School District is located in the Greater Victoria region, south of Vancouver Island. It is the center of a residential town surrounded by fishing villages along the west coast of British Columbia. It is located about 20-30 minutes west of downtown Victoria.
The Public Schools Program is accredited by the BC Ministry of Education. It welcomes around 250 international students each year within a population of 8,500 local students. It is a growing School District due to the transfer of families from the more urban regions of Victoria, creating a dynamic and familiar environment to live and study; Due to this growth in 2015 two new High Schools were opened: Belmont Secondary and Royal Bay Secondary.
Students who choose to study at Sooke schools have the opportunity to join the classes like another Canadian. While studying, they can participate in a wide variety of academic and specialized courses such as: computing, graphic design, concert and jazz band, performing arts, psychology, business, etc.
The natural beauty of the coastline, the caring and welcoming character of the community, and the proximity to downtown Victoria, create the perfect environment for students to live and study in Sooke.
