We are “Canada’s World School for Boys”.
There is compelling evidence to suggest boys and girls learn differently. We are a school that focuses on the specific needs of boys while ensuring that each of our students has a global mindset.
We are a school vested in research and educational design.
Our faculty meets weekly to share current research, best practices in boys’ learning, and innovative curriculum design. Their goal is to ensure our boys think critically, create and innovate, and love what they are doing.
We are committed to authentic learning.
Gone are the days when learning was all about memorization. Using approaches like Harkness, our students are consistently shown how to apply learning in real life, problem-solving contexts as they seek authentic connections between their curricular and real world problems.
All of our teachers are specialists — even at the elementary school level.
All subjects are taught by teachers who are specifically trained in, and passionate about, their subject area.
Students can choose a “Major” at Grade 10
Four optional theme-based Majors called “cohort programs” are offered at the Grade 10 level that transcend multiple disciplines and include: Science and Technology (FUSION), Outdoor Education (DISCOVERY), Global Studies (CONNECT), and Performing Arts (EXPRESS).
Our curricular offerings are some of the most comprehensive in North America.
Whether it’s our Advanced Placement classes, Latin, Underwater Robotics Club, rugby and basketball teams, or our seven award-winning bands and ensembles, breadth and depth is at the heart of who we are.
- 60 Clubs
- 55 Competitive teams
- 93 Course offerings
- 25 Advanced Placement (AP) Electives
- 60% of all students in a band or ensemble
