Mission & Philosophy
Our Mission and Values
Building upon a tradition of academic excellence within a supportive community, we enrich the learning experience of our students to foster self-confidence, resilience, and creativity to enable each student to reach her unique potential. We value character development, social responsibility, critical thinking, and effective communication.
We educate girls for life.
Expectations of the School Community
We believe, as did Miss Ellen K. Bryan (headmistress, 1942–1958), that the initials C, H, and S also stand for courtesy, honour, and service.
Showing respect for one another by speaking courteously, holding doors open, offering assistance with carrying books or moving equipment, and generally showing consideration at all times; listening to one another and respecting one another's opinions; attending all classes and arriving on time; assisting visitors to the school.
Personal and intellectual honesty; submitting only one’s own work on tests and assignments; learning the difference between research and plagiarism on projects; respecting property by asking permission before using the belongings of others and by not defacing property; wearing the school uniform with pride.
Helping one another and volunteering one’s service at school and in the community.
Code of Conduct
Students at the school are expected to understand and follow these guidelines set out in the Code of Conduct. The purpose of these guidelines is to protect the safety, health, and welfare of the individual students of CHS, as well as the greater CHS community.
Students must understand that their membership in the Crofton House School student body is contingent on abiding by these guidelines and those who do not may be required to withdraw before the end of the school year.
