MacDowellRugby Island Academy

MacDowellRugby is excited to partner with the Cowichan Valley School District to bring the MacDowellRugby Academy Island Program to Cowichan Secondary School starting in the 2022/23 school year. With a proven track record of helping foster excellence in students, MacDowellRugby's Island Program at Cowichan Secondary School will not only focus on building the skills for a successful career in Rugby and strong academics, but will also foster community leadership in all students. The program is open to students of all abilities and levels in grades 10-12. In addition to regular classes, students will also take classes on the principles of sport, athletic leadership, and rugby.

“As a Board we are committed to providing the highest quality of educational experiences to our students. Offering a world-class rugby academy for students in the valley and beyond truly fits that mandate,” said Candace Spilsbury, Chair of the Board of Education for the Cowichan Valley.
