How we see Trafalgar Castle School
How Trafalgar Castle School sees itself
"Challenge her mind, strengthen her voice and nurture her heart. Trafalgar Castle School is an all-girls, independent day and boarding school for grades 4 through 12 located in Whitby, Ontario. Educating girls since 1874, Trafalgar is differentiated by its size, location and the strength of its community. We offer exceptional academics, strong student supports and are known, in particular, for nurturing and growing the abilities of students who may become lost in a larger setting."
"While we demonstrate dedication to academics, cultivating emotional intelligence, resilience, and positive interpersonal skills are at the forefront of our efforts. Social Emotional Learning is something that sets Trafalgar Castle apart, and creates a supportive and empowering school community as students mature into adulthood. Students are given a safe space to use their voice and build their confidence."
"Trafalgar Castle’s circle of care is second to none. We have advisors, coaches, faculty and staff that are always present for the diverse group of learners in our building. We recognize that adolescence is hard, and are determined to be a soft place to land while engaging in future-ready curriculum that ensures students are prepared for post-secondary life."
"Firstly, we are a real castle! Here at Trafalgar, we embrace the traditions that have existed within the castle walls since it was built. Next, we are small by design - but our academic, co-curricular, and leadership programming is incredibly robust at the same time. Finally, our team puts forth incredible effort to ensure our students felt taken care of at all times. This includes snack stations, a well-rounded lunch, and shuttle for students to take to and from the Whitby GO Station."
"Experiential learning is at the forefront of our education model, and it is demonstrated through our Beyond the Castle week. BTC brings students to new places and allows them to interact with different cities, communities, and people, thus expanding their knowledge on various subjects. This dedication to a student’s relationship to their community and real-life experience is one of the most under-appreciated aspects of Trafalgar that sets us aside from other schools."
"We were built in 1874, and will be celebrating our 150th anniversary in 2024.
We have a 100% acceptance rate for our students into the post-secondary institution of their choice
We are small by design; there is a 1:5 teacher to student ratio.
We integrate technology into all aspects of education.
Our graduates are more likely to pursue careers in STEM than girls in co-ed schools."

Melissa Knight-Johnson, Head of School
We are excited to introduce you to our all-girls' day and boarding school; a school unlike any other in Canada. At just over 240 students from Grade 4 to Grade 12, we are small by design where every student is recognized and honoured for the individual they are and no student slips through the cracks.
We believe the best entry point to a large and complex world is a warm and personal learning environment with ample opportunities for personal discovery and growth. This is what you will discover in our classrooms, in our hallways and on our fields. We have been at the forefront of girls’ education for almost 150 years.
