The public is invited to view and comment on the current plan to consolidate and rezone the campus of St. John’s Academy – Shawnigan Lake located at 2371 Shawnigan Lake Road, Shawnigan Lake, BC.
St. John’s Academy Shawnigan Lake is a caring community focused on interdisciplinary learning and inspired by the outdoors and its community. We are excited to propose the growth of our campus and expand our curriculum from Grades 4-12 to K-12. Our goal is to always provide an affordable private school option and to give back to our community, Shawnigan Lake, BC.
In addition to creating a boost to the local construction industry, our proposed expansion will create approximately 85 new teaching jobs and a similar number of non-teaching jobs. We will provide a unique educational experience allowing the opportunity for local students to interact with international students for an enriched multicultural experience.
Strengthening community connections and addressing community needs/ expanding partnerships with local organizations such as O.U.R. Ecovillage and the Island Corridor Foundation.
St. John’s Academy understands the importance of water and we will give special attention to our campus connection with Shawnigan Lake as a sensitive community water resource. We will preserve our Heritage retaining essential trees/ protect species habitat space and area ecology/ enhance connections to local heritage features such as the E+N Railways and local trails.
