Geoffrey Dowd, Principal
Bienvenue à Trafalgar. Now in my 21st 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. Trafalgar (Quebec's oldest English-language girls school recently celebrated its 125th birthday) remains forward-looking and dynamic in today’s Montréal, preparing young women for life in Québec, Canada, and the world.
Most families exploring a high school education for their daughters hear of us by word of mouth, either by recommendation or through our positive reputation. Right from the start, we want to make prospective families feel welcome when visiting and asking questions about Trafalgar. Our admissions process takes place entirely at the school, and I try to meet every family and all applicant students personally. This connection and attention is something families come to expect in a small school of about 150 girls.
Once you’ve checked us out on the web, please check us out in person. My colleagues and I look forward to greeting you, either at our Open House (held during Admissions Season) or at any other time when you can visit us for a tour. You'll feel the Traf difference from the moment you come through our doors.
Welcome to the #TrafFamily.
