Inside each of our girls is a leadera courageous womana curious minda mentora compassionate woman.

St. Clement’s School is a leading Toronto independent girls’ school with an enrolment of 467 students spanning Grades 1 to 12. Founded on the principle of academic excellence, our small school size allows for a strong spirit of community, a vast number of student opportunities, and a strong support model for high-achieving girls.

A tangible sense of community spirit and pride

Principal's Message

It is with great excitement and pride that I welcome you to our St. Clement’s School website - a window on the St. Clement’s School (SCS) community.

For those who know us, beyond the strong tradition of academic excellence, there is a tangible sense of community spirit and pride when entering the doors at 21 St. Clements Avenue. We welcome you to our website – our online home – and hope that it gives you a sense of our warm spirit and our excellent programs, even before dropping by for a visit.

At SCS, our mission is to develop outstanding women who are intellectually curious, courageous and compassionate and we believe that this is done through a process of guiding each one of our girls to seek her own path of discovery. We also believe that there is merit in learning from occasionally taking a divergent path - one that may challenge our girls and task them with learning from stumbles and mistakes. As we say: the best path is rarely a straight line.

Choosing a school for your daughter or daughters is a very important decision. It is my hope that as you travel through the many areas and information on our St. Clement’s School website, you will get a taste for who we are and that you will take the next step to venturing in to meet our community - one that reflects relentless passion, courage and curiosity in learning.

We look forward to meeting you and helping your family get to know us.

Warmest regards,

Martha Perry '85

Every member of the SCS team is dedicated to delivering on our mission. Developing character, provoking curiosity, fostering compassion, building school spirit, and having a sense of humour and fun — these are the hallmarks of the SCS experience.

Our School Values

In a fast-changing world, it is vital to articulate what truly matters to us as a School — the core beliefs and principles that guide everything we do. Each one of us believes that nurturing young women as leaders is paramount. Our School’s values guide us on our path to developing curious, courageous and compassionate young women. We live these values every day.


We set high standards for ourselves in everything we do and pursue those standards with courage, resilience and a sense of perspective. We strive to do our very best and support each other to reach our goals.


We value differences and diverse perspectives, are considerate of the needs of others, and demonstrate respect through our actions.


We draw strength and support from the openness, inclusiveness, and spirit of growing, learning and playing together.


We foster an environment that values discovery, original thinking, and innovation. We are open to new ideas and new ways.


We honour our Anglican traditions and welcome all faiths to our community. We believe that opportunities for reflection and mindfulness foster inner strength.


Honesty and accountability guide all that we do.

We’re proud of our affiliations
