Girl’s Education has a Proud History and a Bold Future at the Bishop Strachan School
Since 1867, The Bishop Strachan School (BSS) has been giving girls the opportunity to not only discover the world, but to transform it.
With 2017 marking the school’s 150th anniversary, BSS is taking that mission even further.
The school is constructing a state-ofthe art building on its Forest Hill campus that is tailored to educating girls.
With classrooms and workspaces designed to inspire exploration and collaboration — bringing the arts together with science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) — the new building is an ideal atmosphere for developing the skills and attributes needed in today’s complex world.
But the new building isn’t the only source of excitement at the school just now.
BSS is using this important anniversary as an opportunity to reaffirm its commitment to making exceptional education accessible to all girls.
Currently BSS offers over $1 million in financial assistance every year to qualifying grade 7 to 12 families.
Kaitlin Tse, a recent graduate, is one young student who has benefited greatly from this assistance. At BSS, Kaitlin found the support she needed to explore and expand her interests.
“My teachers were very understanding of my goals as an academic focused student, elite athlete and violinist,” she says. Kaitlin has discovered a world of opportunity, ready to reward her efforts. This fall, she’ll be headed to Harvard, and she recently played on Canada’s National Women’s U18 Hockey Team. “If you have a dream,” says Kaitlin, “Go chase it — work hard and enjoy every moment of the journey you chose to pursue.”
As construction of the new building accelerates and excitement around the 150th anniversary builds, BSS is looking forward to giving more girls a chance to chart their own journey, and make their own history.
BSS is Canada’s oldest day and boarding independent school for girls. Visit us at bss.on.ca/discover.
