Crofton House School


Crofton House School Alumnae Association

There are almost 4000 Crofton House School alumnae living around the world. From Vancouver to New York, Victoria to the UK, Prince Rupert to Shanghai, our Alumnae are doctors, artists and entrepreneurs, they’re mothers and grandmothers, volunteers and CEO’s.  CHS alumnae are confident, empowered women who can - and do - accomplish extraordinary things. 

Crofton House alumnae form a strong network of women because of the close bonds they share with each other, with teachers and staff, and with the spaces and places at the School.  These bonds have had a lasting effect on their character, their relationships, and their place in the world.

Beyond the Ivy Walls: Maya Lange ’93

When did you come to Crofton House? Why?

I came to Crofton House in Grade 7 – back when that was the first year of the Senior School. I was part of the ‘West Van Bus Gang’ – it took us a while to get to school each day but it was a community within a community!

What is you most vivid memory of your time at CHS?

The teachers – they were so encouraging and amazing to work with.

Classroom time – both the learning and the friendships that were forged through studying.

I also loved the assemblies – something about coming together as a school has really played a large role in my memories about CHS.

What led you to the career you have now – what inspired you?

I have always really loved communicating with people. So much of my career has been driven by passion rather than skills. If you have the passion or interest in a certain area you can gain the skills.

How did CHS help prepare you for the world outside of the ivy walls?

The belief that women can do anything. I never thought I couldn’t achieve what I wanted to. Crofton gave me the confidence that everything was possible. 

What message would you give the girls as they start looking towards their future?

Keep a very open mind. Talk to as many people as possible about anything that interests you – get first hand info when making choices.
