    Shawnigan's Residential Life Program is rooted in the belief that a boarding school can teach students through the experience of living together in an educational setting. Learning should never be limited to the classroom, and the opportunities for the development of character can occur at any point in a day. Shawnigan tries to present opportunities that can best summed up in the words of a recent Shawnigan graduate:
    “It’s that sense when you meet a Shawnigan grad: they look you in the eye, their shoulders are back, they stand tall. They smile – that sense of happiness that comes from confidence.”
    The four main goals of Shawnigan's Residential Program focus on helping students:
    1. Manage their time and studies independently
    2. Live respectfully and responsibly with others in their community
    3. Develop individual strength of character
    4. Function confidently and successfully in the less controlled college environment and later life
    The Residential Life program offers all students a safe, supportive, values-based community. Shawnigan is a boarding school with a boarding culture. Over 90% of our students live on campus, giving Shawnigan staff the opportunity and time to continue to develop and educate even after the academic day is finished. That focused and dedicated time makes an enormous difference.
