As they start considering their career after CHS, Grade 11 and 12 students have the opportunity to explore different vocations through the Work Experience Program. The program is an additional opportunity for students that supplements the Career Education curriculum. It offers 20 hours of work experience for students who are matched with a program supporter, including CHS alumnae, working in a field of their interest.
The holidays are a time of giving and receiving, but Crofton House students experience that joy year-round through the service-learning component of the Ivy Compass program. Reciprocity makes the program unique. The school community gives its time and talents while also receiving experience, widened worldviews, and greater understanding of others.
Grade 12 Crofton House student Sofie has always loved school, calling it her sanctuary. At five, she visited a township in Cape Town, South Africa and realized something life-changing: not all girls had access to the same quality of education as she did.
