At Trinity College School, one of Canada’s oldest and most respected educational institutions, your child will develop friendships to last a lifetime while being encouraged daily in academics, leadership and the arts. Explore Trinity in Action on February 2nd, 2013!
Built on the strength of three pillars: people, program and place, Trinity College School is highly regarded as a supportive and close-knit community of students, parents, alumni and staff that work together to develop strong habits for a life of purpose and service. This co-educational boarding school attracts both local and international students from more than 30 countries, offering a full range of learning opportunities and carefully nurturing good study habits, critical thinking and observational skills.
The school’s location, one hour east of Toronto, is beneficial for students—the campus is so close to Toronto that weekend trips for the 60% of boarders who attend TCS are a regular occurrence. The 100 acre campus contains 9 different playing fields, 2 gyms, a hockey rink, 4 squash courts, a swimming pool, harriers course and more, and students of all interests will find a safe learning and living environment catered to their needs and equipped to challenge their bodies and minds.
TCS seeks well-rounded students who are interested in trying new things and giving back to their community. As Jennifer Boyko, admissions officer at TCS, notes, “We have a strong tradition of leadership and shared values at TCS, and we are looking for students that are not only going to achieve their full potential, but who will also give back to the TCS community.”
With the aim to develop leaders of character, purpose and vision in mind, TCS strives for excellence in providing a particularly comprehensive and engaging boarding school experience. They recently launched their boarding microsite “where students can ask current TCS students questions about the school and boarding life directly,” says Ms. Boyko. “This is also a student-centered microsite, with student interests in mind.”
According to the school’s official website, international students make up 30% of the Senior School population, with over 28 countries represented and over half of attending boarders coming from outside Canada. These countries include Bermuda, China, Singapore, Mexico, Germany, Korea, Barbados, St. Kitts and India. TCS is indeed a place where students of all interests and backgrounds can come together, experience life through other students’ eyes, and lead, learn, live and laugh together.

“The School provides over $2 million in financial assistance to students each year. At TCS, economic diversity is as important as cultural, geographic and gender diversity. And regardless of a family’s economic circumstances, our mission is to develop habits of the heart and mind. And the purpose is clear; we aim to graduate young people who are as focused on working hard and being successful as they are on being compassionate and giving back. Economics need not be a deciding factor when living a life of purpose and service.” —Stuart Grainger, Headmaster, Trinity College School
Whether your student is interested in arts, athletics, Service Learning opportunities, or an overall boarding school experience of a lifetime, they will be joining a rich school culture of friendship, strong character-building and community designed to develop the heart and mind, thriving well into university and beyond!
