As Collingwood’s sixth Head of School, it is my honour to welcome you to our website. Perhaps you are a prospective family or student, or a career seeker looking to join our caring and vibrant learning community.
Message from the Head of School
Collingwood is a very special community with much to offer. Our mission to “inspire and support young people for meaningful lives” is at the core of everything we do. Collingwood’s personalized and inclusive approach fosters academic excellence and well-being as our students explore opportunities across the four strands--academics, athletics, arts and service learning. We value experiential learning, collaboration, character development, and problem solving across disciplines. Our graduates will join the global community as critical thinkers who are resilient, socially conscious and prepared to make the most of their opportunities.
We work hard to know each child as an individual. Our vision is “socially responsible students pursuing passions for a better world.” We are committed to contributing positively to our local and global communities, environmental stewardship, and supporting the well-being, and inclusion of all people. Through the pursuit of passions, students will find their unique purpose in the world. We will identify each student’s abilities and understand their nature through a personalized approach to learning and by offering a wide array of curricular and co-curricular opportunities. Ultimately, our commitment is that we will care for each student as if they were our own child.
We live our values of courage, curiosity and community to be in service to others. We embrace our Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Commitment so that all members of our community feel welcome, understood and valued.
If you are reading this as an introduction to our community, I encourage you to contact our Admissions Department for a tour to see our School in action. It is a wonderful opportunity to learn more about our exceptional community of educators and families.
