  • A MEANINGFUL INVESTMENT IN YOUR CHILD AND FUTURE STUDENTS

Giving back is a key value of The York School community
 
Since our founding in 1965, the York community has valued working together and giving back to achieve big dreams. The unparalleled experience that York teachers and staff provide to our students nurtures and empowers them to find their passions and excel, both here and after they graduate.  
 
Your generosity plays a critical role in all this. Beyond the operating costs covered by tuition, philanthropic gifts elevate the learning experience by supporting unique classroom enhancements, specialized equipment purchases and capital investments, important wellbeing initiatives, and bursaries for promising students whose families require tuition flexibility.
The Head’s Initiative:
  • This fund enables Head of School Struan Robertson to act on immediate priorities and longer term strategic goals to enhance the student experience across all divisions of the school.
Financial Assistance Bursaries and Graduating Class Bursary Campaign:
  • Everybody benefits when more perspectives and talents join the York community. Supporting Financial Assistance bursaries gives highly promising students trajectory-changing opportunities to discover their passions and achieve their own big dreams.

The Head's Initiative

The Head’s Initiative enables Struan Robertson to act on immediate priorities and longer term strategic goals to enhance the student experience across all divisions of the school. Contributions keep York nimble, responsive, and competitive as the premier gender-inclusive IB World School in Toronto.
 
Projects recently supported by the Annual Fund include:

  • Live Streaming System gives families a seat court-side to games and assemblies, no matter where they are.
  • On-site water distiller in our science labs improves efficiency, reduces plastic waste, and changes the speed at which labs function.
  • Indigenous Floor Map shows how Canada looked before treaties or political borders were established, creating a powerful experience for viewing Canada’s history.
  • Little Shop of Horrors was mounted in December 2022 and, thanks to Annual Fund donors, the large-scale puppet of Audrey II, the man-eating sentient plant, had a place on stage.

Financial Assistance Bursaries and Graduating Class Bursary Campaign

The York community is committed to enriching our school by welcoming diverse voices and backgrounds from across the city. Bursaries play a critical role in delivering on that commitment.  
 
Financial Assistance Bursaries offer assistance to highly promising and talented students whose families require support to cover the full cost of tuition. Bursaries provide students with trajectory-changing opportunities to discover their passions and achieve big dreams. 
 
The Class of 2023 Bursary Campaign is a challenge to the graduating families of The York School to ‘pay it forward’ by raising funds to support  financial assistance bursaries. If your child is a Class of ‘23 Grad, please help us achieve 100% class participation by donating to the Graduating Class of ‘23 Bursary Campaign.
