Trafalgar Castle School
Trafalgar Castle School is an all-girls day and boarding school inspiring students in Grades 4-12. Educating girls since 1874, Trafalgar is a place like no other. By challenging her mind, strengthening her voice and nurturing her heart, we prepare girls for life through innovative programming and authentic learning experiences amidst a community of care and support.
Diverse perspectives in our classrooms, programs and student experiences reflect the many voices within our community, across our country and around the world. Capable and confident, our students are equipped with the mindset to define their own future and contribute and thrive in a world of accelerating change.
Our small-school advantage means we are agile enough to provide the most up-to-date learning environment and intimate enough to cultivate a strong sense of belonging. With 100% of our graduates accepted to the university of their choice, we provide exceptional academics within a warm and welcoming community, while helping to build women of strength and character. Our academic program challenges each student to know her mind, contribute ideas and question assumptions, while enriching the Ontario curriculum with internationally- acclaimed programs that draw on the best from around the world in math, science, English, music and languages.
Located in Whitby, Ontario, just 45 minutes east of Canada’s largest city, in a safe and small community, our boarding program attracts 75 Canadian and international students in Grades 7-12. Boarding life plays an important role in our unique learning environment, broadening the cultural and national diversity on campus and guiding each boarder toward both independence and shared responsibility.
We focus on developing strong and independent young students who approach life with determination, thoughtful insight, compassion and kindness. We offer exceptional academics, strong student supports and the ability to individualize programming based on our students’ needs. Trafalgar has both a strong arts and STEM program, making it ideal for well-rounded students. We pride ourselves on challenging each student's mind, strengthening their voice and nurturing their hearts.
We want our students to be inspired to learn and grow wherever their interests take them – and sometimes that means leaving the classroom behind. As they pursue opportunities in the arts and athletics, in clubs and excursions, Trafalgar students develop the confidence and resilience needed to navigate all stages of life. They also acquire leadership experience, teamwork skills and grit – persistence in the face of obstacles.
Our boarding program attracts a mix of Canadian and international students in Grades 7 to 12. Many Canadian students value the opportunity of a boarding experience while international students appreciate the close connections and friendships they develop with Canadian students and students from around the globe.
There is no substitute for feeling the unique energy that Trafalgar Castle School evokes. We encourage families to visit our campus and meet with our Admissions Team but understand that with travel from far-away destinations, this is not always possible during the application process. Online interviews are arranged at a time that is convenient for you.
