Find Yourself. At SCS.

You might enjoy softball, singing, and science; or creative writing, coding, and cross country. Whatever your passion, you can explore it at SCS. We offer a supportive environment where our girls are encouraged to try new things and valued just as they are. Check out our Co-Curriculars brochure, a sneak peek at the many ways you can get involved here!

Arts

Let us paint you a picture of how the arts bring SCS to life: with splashes of vibrant colour, doses of moving 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 they have a passion for the stage or for standing behind the camera, our girls can explore interests and participate in musical and drama productions, dance clubs and competitions, House plays, art shows, and musical and choral events.

Leading-Edge Facilities

Powell Hall, our multipurpose performance and lecture hall, provides a versatile state-of-the-art theatre facility. Students also use our modern dance studio and music room, complete with soundproof suites, for their classes and rehearsals. Our visual arts studio and multimedia lab complement the exceptional arts facilities designed to meet the needs of our Arts program.

Athletics

At SCS, athletic opportunities abound on the track, field, court, and in the pool for every student to explore. Our athletics program embraces a philosophy of encouraging participation, developing skills at all levels, and building healthy lifestyles. Our girls learn the important values of respect, responsibility, and self-discipline.

Our SCS sports teams also win – a lot! We have a long-standing tradition of achievement in a variety of sports. We are deeply proud of both our commitment to participation and fun, and our girls’ achievements at CISAA tournaments, Metro Championships, and OFSAA.

The House System

Our four Houses are a significant part of life here, and have been a favourite tradition since their introduction in 1960. Every student and staff member is part of one of four Houses – Stuart, Tudor, Windsor or York – and participates in inter-House competitions and activities. Displays of leadership, academic achievement, and participation in School activities are rewarded with House points. At the end of the year, the points are tallied and the House Cup is awarded!

The House System promotes interaction among our girls from different grades, and offers leadership opportunities while building school spirit.

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.
