Geoffrey Dowd, Principal
Welcome…Bienvenue…Bienvenida. Now in my 22nd year as Principal at Trafalgar, I still find inspiration and excitement in the positive energy, activities, and learning that are part of every school day here. In a small school setting, we offer a broad program of studies and opportunities dedicated to serving adolescent girls from a range of communities and cultures. Quebec's oldest English-language girls school, Trafalgar offers a multi-lingual environment attuned to today’s Montréal, and prepares young women for life in Québec, Canada, and the world.
Most Trafalgar students are from Montreal families looking for an excellent all-girls school in downtown Montreal. Our school community already includes families from other provinces and countries who want their daughters to spend a year or more with us in the city, and to benefit from the many advantages of our small, forward-looking school. This year, we will also be looking to enroll more international students, as a diverse mix of students offers great advantages for learning to all our students.
Right from the start, we want to make prospective families feel welcome when visiting and asking questions about Trafalgar, and I try to meet every family and all applicant students personally. This connection and attention is something families come to see as the norm in a small school of about 150 girls, where every girl can find a niche and excel to her potential.
Once you’ve checked us out on the web, please visit us in person. My colleagues and I look forward to greeting you, either at our Open House on Saturday, October 1), the last Tuesday morning of each month for a drop-in visit, or any other day by when you can visit us for a tour (call first so we can have a student show you around). You'll feel the Traf difference from the moment you come through our doors.
Welcome to the #TrafFamily. À bientôt!…¡Hasta pronto!...See you soon!
