About St. Clement’s School.
As a leading independent girls’ school in Toronto, St. Clement’s School is recognized for its longstanding commitment to academic rigour and excellence in a small, nurturing environment – but that’s just the beginning.
We’re a close-knit community that celebrates creativity, diversity, and innovation, where students from Grades 1 to 12 live, learn, and grow together under one roof. At SCS, every girl is known and valued.
Mission & Values
Our mission is to develop outstanding women who are intellectually curious, courageous, and compassionate.
Our values are excellence, respect, community, creativity, spirituality, and integrity.
Our Diversity Statement
St. Clement’s School is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion. We value each community member’s identity and well-being. Together, we learn and grow by embracing multiple perspectives, experiences, and cultures. Our differences are our strengths.
Our Approach to Learning
We offer a framework of opportunities and support that meets each girl’s unique needs, built on a foundation of core values.
Our approach to learning includes an inspiring and balanced learning experience, innovation and technology, experiential education, LINCWell, leadership opportunities, and a range of co-curriculars.
Indigenous Land Recognition
We would like to acknowledge that St. Clement’s School is situated upon traditional territories that have been inhabited by Indigenous peoples from time immemorial. We are grateful for the opportunity to meet here, and we thank all the generations of people who have taken care of this land for thousands of years.
The territories include the Wendat, the Anishinabek Nation, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nations, and the Metis Nation. The treaty that was signed for this particular parcel of land is collectively referred to as the Toronto Purchase, and it applies to lands east of Brown’s Line to Woodbine Avenue and north towards Newmarket.
We also recognize the contributions that other Indigenous peoples from across Turtle Island have made, both in shaping and in strengthening our community, our province, and our country as a whole.
We are grateful for our partnerships with the First Nations School of Toronto and the Moose Cree First Nation. We are immensely grateful to the community of Moose Factory for welcoming us onto and allowing us to learn from their traditional ancestral lands, which is Treaty 9 territory. Chi-Meegwetch to all the members of the Moose Cree First Nation for their friendship and generosity.
Our recognition and acknowledgement of the Indigenous territories, peoples, and our partnerships are connected to our collective commitment to make the promise and the challenge of Truth and Reconciliation real in our community.
