Every girl is known and valued.

At SCS, we share a values-driven culture that celebrates student achievement in academics, leadership, community service, arts, and athletics.

What Makes St. Clement’s School Special?

The St. Clement’s School Experience

We’re recognized for our long-standing commitment to providing academic rigour and excellence within a nurturing environment.

At SCS, you will find our unique small-school advantage: with 470 girls in Grades 1 through 12 learning together under one roof, every girl is known and valued. From the foundation laid in Grade 1, throughout their time at SCS, our students are encouraged and taught to question and discern, connect within and across disciplines, and persist through complexity and uncertainty. Our girls stand out as intellectually curious, courageous, and compassionate.

How an SCS education helps each girl achieve her full potential

Find your passion

Our goal is to develop outstanding young women who are compassionate, curious about the world, and confident enough to step outside of their comfort zone.

Create Your Way

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 co-curricular Arts programs contribute to a richly imaginative atmosphere.

Be On Our Team

Opportunities abound on the field, track, court, and in the pool for every student to explore. We are deeply proud of both our commitment to participation and fun, and our girls’ achievements at CISAA tournaments, Metro Championships, and OFSAA.

Get Social

Our girls enjoy a healthy social life, complete with school dances; musical, drama and fashion design productions; trips; robotics; debating and sporting competitions; community service; and other opportunities to interact with boys and girls from other schools.

Join the Club

Are you passionate about philosophy and playing guitar? Perhaps you’re curious about Chinese culture. With over 70 clubs and co-curriculars, there is something to match most interests – and if we don’t have it already, you’ll find the openness to start one yourself!

Serious About Spirit

SCS is one proud place, and we take spirit seriously! The extraordinary spirit of our School shines as all students and staff celebrate the successes and share the news and challenges of our community.

Find Yourself in a House

We have four Houses at SCS – Stuart, Tudor, Windsor, and York – competing for House points and the coveted House Cup! It’s yet another way our school spirit shines.

Develop your passions, explore your talents and have fun. Active participation within a small and diverse community fosters a sense of belonging and builds friendships that will last a lifetime.

The different ways SCS is richly rewarding

Experiential Education allows our girls to be involved in the community on a local, national, and global level.

Round Square

Round Square students make a strong commitment, beyond academic excellence, to both broadening perspectives and allowing for reflection. Round Square is a world-wide association of schools on five continents sharing unique and ambitious goals. As the first and only girls’ school in North America to be accepted as a full global member, SCS is committed to the six IDEALS of learning - Internationalism, Democracy, Environment, Adventure, Leadership and Service.

Young Round Square

Young Round Square prepares Middle School students for life in a global community through service, challenge, adventure and international understanding. Activities include conferences, leadership roles that promote activism, and inspiring others to participate in projects.

The Duke of Edinburgh's Award

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award began as a program to help young people develop a sense of responsibility to themselves and to their communities. It encourages personal discovery, growth, self-reliance, and perseverance, in a non-competitive format. Through the internationally recognized Award’s three levels (Bronze, Silver and Gold) students in Grades 9-12 have the opportunity to develop in four areas - service, adventurous journey, skills, and physical recreation.

Exchanges

Exchanges offer our girls the opportunity to become immersed in a different country, culture or language. Ranging from one week to four weeks, they are open to students in Grades 7-12.

Students find the passion to learn about people and places, the courage to challenge personal boundaries, and the curiosity to explore.

Where did you go to learn today?

Diverse viewpoints, interests and talents are welcomed and encouraged at St. Clement's.

Assemblies

Two mornings a week, you may hear enthusiastic cheering as House teams compete in friendly challenges, hundreds of voices raised in song, laughter at a prefect video, audible support for a junior class presentation, or applause for a captivating speech.

Social Awareness

As part of a vibrant and diverse city, we are increasingly aware of the interdependence of our School and the broader world around us. We have expanded connections, locally and globally, to enhance our girls’ learning experiences. Students are encouraged to be reflective and recognize the needs of others.

Innovative Learning

Enrichment opportunities keep innovation at the forefront of learning, contributing to classroom experiences where students become creators and visionaries. Our girls are exposed to a wide variety of learning frameworks, resources and models to assist them in developing critical thinking skills and creativity.
Embracing differences enhances everything

Making a difference

At St. Clement’s, we challenge students to take risks, deepen their understanding and discover new passions through opportunities to explore different communities. Whether exploring a part of the city, raising awareness about the work of an organization, nurturing a partnership or providing support, students at every grade level actively participate and engage in the communities beyond the walls of St. Clement’s.

Community Day

During this annual event in December, students from Grades 1-12, alongside SCS faculty and staff, work together with volunteers, staff and clients at more than 25 charitable and non-profit organizations in the Greater Toronto Area.

It is an inspiring day during which students see community support and relationships in action, and learn more about the city’s diversity.

SCS Horizons Program

This peer tutoring and mentorship program was initially established in 2005 and currently operates as a partnership with Stanley Public School.

Each term SCS students conduct reading, math and performing arts lessons, including music, with their young buddies at Stanley Public School. They also organize and implement an annual March Break Camp.

EcoSchool

Environmental awareness and action is a key component of our School culture. Certified at the Gold level by Ontario EcoSchools, our commitment influences our policies and behaviour.

The EcoTeam - comprised of class representatives from students in Grades 7-12 - meets weekly to discuss environmental issues, and to develop and implement EcoSchools’ green initiatives.

Leadership

We encourage our girls to be leaders, and are committed to providing opportunities for all students to develop their leadership capabilities. Our girls learn by leading. We believe leadership is about more than holding a title - at the end of her time at St. Clement’s, each student will have received formal leadership training and many opportunities to put that training into practice.

The Student Leadership Program

Learn Well, Lead Well, Live Well. LINCWell.

LINCWell is a full school (Grades 1 to 12) approach designed to craft for each student a school experience characterized by Learning, Individualization, Nurturing, Creativity, and Wellness (LINCWell.)

A key component of St. Clement’s unique offering is a learning environment where our girls are nurtured and supported, and each of our girls is known and feels valued. Our goal, in all that we do, is to enable our girls to learn well, lead well, and live well. LINCWell ensures we can meet this goal.

Why LINCWell is integral to our girls’ success
