Crofton House School Students

Each one of our girls from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 12 comes to Crofton House School with a unique life experience. What they share while here is a transformative experience that allows them to discover and reach their true potential. Meet some of the inspiring students who make Crofton House School so special.

“These are the girls who will be the future leaders, the girls who will make the difference. They can do anything. That’s what we need girls and women to do. To make it a better world for everyone.”

I found a great group of friends and supportive teachers in every single one of my classes at CHS. Debate is an activity I've pursued seriously throughout high school through debate club, even competing in the World Individual Debating and Public Speaking Championship in South Africa. I'm so lucky to have met my debate mentor Frankie Cena through CHS. I'm going to Stanford University and I’m going to be studying social sciences and/or humanities. Looking forward, I'm excited to study concepts that interest me more deeply. At CHS students can get a grasp of what they're interested in. Now that I know what I love learning about, I'm looking forward to delving into these interests with professors and students who are equally as passionate.

I have been at CHS since Grade 1 and it has played a huge role in shaping the person I am today. I am most thankful to be graduating with the Class of 2018. I feel fortunate to have been surrounded with these passionate, funny, driven, adventurous and inspiring girls every day for the past few years. They have pushed me to be the best I can be and offer a helping hand when I slip. I will be taking a gap year to be an au pair in France. I have always loved working with children, so I am very excited for this new experience! I am living with a family with two kids and a cat who live in Paris for the year. After my gap year and a bit of travelling around Europe, I plan to attend the University of Victoria to pursue a career in education as a French immersion elementary teacher.

Crofton House has a strong fine arts program, which gave me the opportunity to develop both my artistic skills and my knowledge of art and design. The teachers allow Grade 11–12 students a lot of freedom in terms of making art; they provide various kinds of art mediums for students to choose and help to develop their ideas. I will be continuing my studies at Parsons School of Design in Manhattan, New York. My major is communication design – a combination of graphic design, advertisement and illustration. The university counselling at CHS provided me huge support in terms of choosing schools, course suggestions, essays and recommendation letters. I am excited about going to New York and studying something that I have been passionate about since a very young age.

My experience at CHS has been incredible! The School gave me a second home where I always felt welcomed and appreciated. Crofton House helped me to find my passion by allowing me to pursue it both inside and outside of school. At CHS I was given chances to participate in school productions, and I have always been supported in pursuing dance outside of school. I am going to Sheridan College to study Musical Theatre and I am extremely excited to do what I love every day. It's not always very common for a student from a school like Crofton House to go into performing arts, and the fact that I have been supported through all of it makes me that much more excited!
