We foster intellectual curiosity and we instill the courage to take risks, which leads to discovery and innovation. The Junior School (Grades 1 to 6) and Upper School (Grades 7 to 12) are distinct but interconnected communities that work together to create a supportive environment and exceptional school spirit.

Principal's Message


Martha Perry '85, Principal

Welcome! I am thrilled that you are interested in learning more about St. Clement’s School for your daughter. Beyond the strong tradition of academic excellence, there is a tangible sense of community spirit and pride at SCS that you can feel the moment you walk into our building.

Our mission is to develop outstanding women who are intellectually curious, courageous, and compassionate, and we believe that this is done by guiding our girls to seek their own paths of discovery. We also believe that there is merit in learning from occasionally taking a divergent path – one that may challenge our girls, and tasks them with learning from stumbles and mistakes. As we like to say: the best path is rarely a straight line.

Choosing a school for your daughter is a very important decision. It is my hope that as you read this online profile, you will get a little sense of who we are and will be inspired to take the next step to venturing in to meet our community – one that reflects relentless passion, courage, and curiosity in learning.

We look forward to meeting you and sharing more about St. Clement’s School. .

Warmest regards,

Martha Perry ’85

Stories & Testimonials


Learning by Leading

At SCS, leadership is about more than having a title. From organizing our School-wide Spirit Week to helping a new student find her classroom on the first day of school, our girls are encouraged to lead - and learn about leading - within and beyond the School's walls. 

The Leadership Program combines instruction and hands-on experience which spans the Junior, Middle and Senior Schools. Classroom curriculum, student leadership conferences, topic-specific workshops, leadership retreats and trips, and local, national, and international service projects are all components of a student's leadership development at SCS.

Structured leadership opportunities begin as early as Grade 4 where students have the opportunity to mentor younger students as a reading buddy. Other early leadership opportunties are the Mentorship and Peer Tutoring programs, where girls in Grade 6 can become tutors. Middle School students are encouraged to build on their leadership capabilities initiated in the Junior School by participating in student government and a wide range of special interest clubs. Volunteers and elected representatives help lead community work, the School's EcoTeam and organize special events. In the Senior School, there are a wide range of student-run groups and activities providing leadership opportunities for students in a vast array of interests. In her graduating year, each student will hold a formal leadership role so that she can practise and refine her leadership capabilities.

At the end of their time at St. Clement's, students will have received formal leadership training and multiple opportunities to put that training into practice - learning by leading. 


Beyond the Classroom

At St. Clement's School, our goal is to develop well-rounded girls who enjoy all aspects of life and have the confidence to try new activities. Active participation fosters a sense of belonging and helps build friendships that last a lifetime.


Let us paint you a picture of how the arts bring SCS to life: with splashes of vibrant colour, doses of drama, and soaring, soulful music. Our robust Arts offering provides students at every grade level with the opportunity for creative expression, enhanced problem-solving skills and confidence building. 

Our girls engage in the arts through both the formal curriculum, and co-curricular activities and clubs. Whether it's a passion for the stage or standing behind the camera, our girls have the opportunity to explore interests and participate in musical and drama productions; dance clubs and competitions; House plays; art shows; and musical and choral events. 


We have a long-standing tradition of achievement in a variety of sports, and our girls have many opportunities to explore and participate on the field, track and court.

Our athletics program prides itself on a philosophy of encouraging participation, developing skills at all levels, and building healthy lifestyles. Junior School students participate in soccer, cross-country, basketball, swimming, volleyball, and track and field. Middle and Senior School students may choose from 13 different sports offered each year, including Alpine Skiing, Golf, Swimming, and Softball.  

Our teams compete against other independent schools, and many go on to participate in OFSAA championships. 

School Spirit

The extraordinary spirit of our School is shared by students, staff, parents and alumnae alike. A collective sense of pride is evident throughout the school day and beyond, especially in our inspiring assemblies, exciting House games, cheers and skits. 

Spirit Week allows our girls to compete in friendly competitions and express House pride. The School-wide event features a fun line up of activities, events, and competitions, like lip syncing and locker decorating. 


Academics at SCS

We're known for academic excellence.

With a robust curriculum that extends far beyond our walls, classroom lessons are reinforced with real-life experiences. Our small size is our advantage - an individualized approach for each student and our ability to nimbly approach learning in new ways sets us apart. The academic program at St. Clement's supports our mission to develop outstanding women who are intellectually curious, courageous and compassionate. We do this by ensuring that excellence is not just a word - it's our commitment and our passion.

St. Clement's is a community of life-long learners, where hard work and dedication serve to engage students in innovative and interactive ways. We begin in the Junior School by building a strong foundation within a caring environment, and continue through Middle School where nurturing and support help our girls travel successfully through the early adolescent years. Finally, our Senior School provides academic challenge and specialized courses to ensure our students graduate, prepared and eager to tackle the next exciting phase of life.
