"As I begin my 19th and final year as Head of Crofton House School, I am struck by the transformation of our campus. This certainly would not have been possible without the immense dedication and generosity of the entire CHS community." – Dr. Patricia Dawson
Crofton House School is a warm and supportive community that prepares girls to be courageous, creative and engaged citizens, ready for a world of possibility
Crofton House School is a leading independent day school for girls from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 12, where students are inspired to discover and pursue their personal excellence.
As a post-secondary preparatory school, our challenging and enriched curriculum is designed to prepare girls to succeed on whatever path they choose.
- At Crofton House, our research-informed approach to education is designed for girls and supports the whole girl in her social, emotional, physical and intellectual development
- Ivy Compass, our signature program, fosters personal growth, leadership and engaged citizenship through real-life experiences inside and outside the classroom, from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 12
- On our beautiful 10-acre campus, in specialized classrooms, gyms, science and design labs, music and art studios, in the outdoors and within the community, girls have countless opportunities to discover themselves and develop a lifelong love of learning
- Our highly skilled and dedicated teachers are experts in teaching girls, and strive to make a positive impact on each student’s life.
Guided by our values of courage, creativity and citizenship, Crofton House girls graduate prepared for their futures, with a strong sense of purpose, confident they can do anything.
