Congratulations on embarking on your journey to find the right school for your son. It is undoubtedly one of the most important decisions you will ever make as a parent.

I am so pleased that you have chosen to include Crescent School as part of your consideration. Everyone at our School looks forward to the possibility of providing your son with the support he needs to become a courageous young Man of Character who will make a positive impact on this ever-changing world.

Crescent is truly a unique place for your boy to learn, grow and thrive. Now in our second century, we remain one of the top independent schools for boys in Canada, built on a solid foundation of brotherhood and an unwavering focus on character.

Our mission, Men of Character from Boys of Promise, recognizes that boys with curious minds and open hearts have the potential to develop in a manner that will fit their mission in life, whatever it might be.

Each day, your boy will be immersed in an enriched learning environment that is driven by a relevant curriculum of study. His growth will be fostered through relationships with teachers and mentors who understand the distinct challenges and complexities of boys’ growth and development.

We are a School that takes great pride in the strength of our community of alumni and parents; and we are steadfastly dedicated to ensuring Crescent reflects the rich cultural diversity of the Toronto of today.

We look forward to welcoming you and your family to our campus and to our community.
