The Catholic Independent Schools of the Vancouver Archdiocese (the CISVA) operates 47 schools – 40 elementary and seven high schools. Our footprint extends over 250 kilometres, from Powell River in the west to Chilliwack in the east.
We are a culturally diverse faith-based family. We offer more than a place of work – we provide a call to your teaching vocation where you can work and live your faith in a supportive community. Many of our current teachers and principals are products of our school system – former graduates from the CISVA who continue to grow their spiritual and professional journey with us.
We are a vibrant school system with many school and program expansion projects in the future. We offer spiritual and professional growth and mentorship opportunities for new teachers to help them with their transition into the CISVA.
St. Michael’s School is a Catholic Elementary School for students, from Kindergarten to Grade 7. Our school is a dynamic and welcoming community with a strong partnership between school, home and parish. As a Catholic community, it is our mission to celebrate the richness of our faith, nurture a love of learning and sustain a life giving community. We are located on the Burnaby New Westminster border on an expansive and beautiful property with transit close by. Come join our fun and engaged professional group of teachers who are dedicated to making a positive, lasting impact in each student’s life. Teaching at St. Michael’s is an opportunity to join a progressive community that is committed to collaborative, student-centred, faith-based education. This is a place where educators and students continually learn and grow. Please visit our school's website at www.stmichaelschool.ca for more information about the school.
