It is through the generosity of the Georgian Community – alumni, alumni parents, parents, grandparents and friends of the College – that we are able to give boys the experience of a lifetime. Enriching programs in academics, music, art, drama and athletics help make for a well-rounded education that leads to a successful future.

Your generosity allows us to continue to make the Georgian experience the best it can be and accomplish our goals as a College. There are many ways you can support RSGC. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us if you have any questions.

A Message from Stephen Beatty '86, Headmaster and father of Jack, Class of 2022 and Finn, Class of 2025

Over the past year and a half, I’ve had the privilege of meeting with a great number of RSGC families, alumni and community members to talk about our Junior School Redevelopment Plan. Their generous support allowed for the renovation of Ketchum Hall that our boys began enjoying this fall. The new space is now a Great Hall reflective of our Georgian traditions and I know it will serve the needs of our students for many years to come.
 
The successful completion of Phase 1 of the Junior School Redevelopment Plan places us in a strong position to begin Phase 2 that will focus on the kitchen renovation, and the completion of the main and top levels of the Junior School. This includes a new foyer and a new Junior School Learning Studio. The constraints of our urban footprint force us to make the best use of the buildings that currently stand. Our campus development plan is informed by best practice in school design including welcoming spaces that encourage regular interactions among students.
 
My sincere gratitude goes out to all of our generous donors who helped fund the renovation of Ketchum Hall. I am confident that once again we can come together to complete the second phase of this very important plan for our current students, community, and future Georgians.
 
Thank you for your continued support of our great school!

Gifts can be designated to the following areas:

List of 3 items.

  • Georgian Opportunity Fund

    It has always been in the character of the College to provide for boys who deserve a world-class education. Scholarships help many young boys who would be an excellent fit for the RSGC family and who embody our “Manners Maketh Men” values become the exceptional leaders of our future. Scholarships truly make a difference.
     
    The Georgian Opportunity Fund provides 100% tuition support to deserving boys from Grades 9-12 and includes:
     
    • 100% tuition
    • Uniform
    • Books
    • School trips and extracurricular expenses
    • Laptop
    • TTC fare
    • Daily lunch
  • Headmaster’s Initiatives

    A focus of this year’s Headmaster’s initiatives is the second phase of the Junior School Redevelopment Plan. This includes construction of our beautiful new kitchen, designed with the help of Michael Bonacini and the new Junior School entrance foyer. Additionally, the second floor classrooms will be refreshed with new lighting, conditioned air and better acoustics. The former staff room and administrative offices in the Junior School will be converted into a Junior School Learning Studio providing more break-out space for students to work together solving problems and sharing knowledge.  
  • Manners Maketh Men Scholarship and Bursary Fund

    Named in honour of our founding headmaster Dr. J.L. Wright who proffered the “Manners Maketh Men” credo, this Fund will allow RSGC to offer admission to the best boys from all backgrounds, including students who would be an excellent fit for the RSGC family but are unable to afford an independent school education.
