Crofton House School Experience

More than anything, CHS is a community that supports, challenges and encourages girls for life

As an independent school for girls from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 12 located on a single, connected 10-acre campus, Crofton House is in a unique position to nurture girls’ social, emotional, physical and intellectual development. 

Each day is filled with study, laughter, discussion, play, movement and music as girls express themselves and enthusiastically discover the world around them. While every girl’s Crofton House experience is as unique as she is, there is time each day for community and shared traditions. Whether it’s eating a healthy lunch together or participating in fun activities throughout the year with teachers, parents, alumnae and the broader community, all girls benefit from a strong sense of belonging. 

There is no ‘typical Crofton House student’ – we provide the resources and support for each girl to pursue and discover her personal excellence.

“We do really awesome things as a community outside of academics, things like sports day, Coffee House and service opportunities. They are a great opportunity to bond with everyone.”

“Zero the Hero” visits on the 100th day of school and delivers 100 helium balloons for Kindergarten students to count and enjoy!

Spirit Week

Spirit Week is dedicated to developing community, friendship and fun! Each day has a theme, like wacky hair day, rainbow accessories day or pajama day.


Each week, we gather for Junior (pictured) and Senior School assemblies that bring students together and address issues such as values, community responsibility and citizenship through reading stories or poems, watching videos, performing skits, singing or presenting awards. In the Junior School, parents join assembly once a month.

School Uniform

All Crofton House girls wear our school uniform, which includes the Gordon tartan school tunic or skirt or pants. A shared uniform is a powerful symbol of our inclusive learning environment.


Every year before winter break, the CHS community participates in an 80-year tradition where students, parents, grandparents, alumnae, teachers, staff and friends come together in celebration at the Crofton House Carol Service.
