Our Perspective on Crofton House School

Crofton House was established in 1898 by two sisters, Miss Jessie Gordon and Miss Mary Gordon, starting that year with just four students. In time Emily Carr would teach here. It's also the alma mater to Dolores Claman, the composer of the theme song to Hockey Night in Canada. Of course, the school has grown and changed over the years. If it wasn’t a vital aspect of the educational landscape of Vancouver in 1898, it certainly is now. Arts and athletics are strengths, as is an individual attention to each girls’ specific needs. The most important thing that girls leave with, however, is a sense of confidence and capability. Those are the things that the best girls’ schools offer, and Crofton is undeniably one of them. Girls leave with a clear sense of themselves, and an impressive introduction to civic life. The ideal student is a girl who intends to head to university and, in time, to grow into a position of leadership in her community, be it the city, the world, or anything in between.
