Heads of House and House System
Our Heads of House strive to provide a safe, caring and non-judgmental environment that enables students to work through challenges and develop coping strategies and life skills. Through an open-door, collaborative approach we develop the overall well-being of our students.
The House System is comprised of six houses that compete in inter-house competitions across the Four Strands. Each House includes students and faculty, led by a Head of House (faculty) and two elected Grade 12 House Captains.
Collingwood’s University Guidance office commits to meeting with every senior student, every year. Utilizing a listen-first approach to advising, students and their families are encouraged to explore post-secondary options with curiosity and creativity. Ultimately, this helps our graduates find their best-fit program, community and future path.
Collingwood School is a Round Square Global Member, along with 90 member schools on five continents. The common goal is structured around developing the IDEALS: internationalism, democracy, environment, adventure, leadership and service.

At the Senior School, a variety of co-curricular activities are offered for students spanning the Four Strands of Academics, Arts, Athletics and Service Learning. Co-curricular offerings are a great way for students to explore the world around them and to discover personal passions.
At Collingwood, we value connections with local and global experts to generate real-world experiences across the four strands. Through Global Education, Trips and Tours, and exchanges we offer immersive experiential education experiences.
We offer our senior school students a variety of leadership roles and opportunities within our Student Executive, House System, EDI and across co-curricular teams and clubs.
