Royal St. George's College is an urban day school that combines academic excellence with a stimulating and supportive environment. Founded in 1964, the mission of our College is to challenge and inspire each boy to become the best version of himself.
RSGC offers a challenging program of academics and co-curricular activities designed to prepare students for placement at the university of their choice. Our high academic standards, strong support system and our expectation that students will participate in athletics, music, the arts, public speaking and outdoor education makes for a well-rounded education.
Founded in 1961 as an Anglican choir school, we continue to value our musical heritage and Anglican values. We welcome and respect the faiths of all boys in our diverse population. Our community is based upon the principles that we respect one another, take responsibility for our actions and have the right to respectfully use our voices to make our views known. The size of the school population, approximately 445 boys, ensures that each student is known, respected and appreciated for his unique strengths and that he forms close, positive relationships with both peers and faculty.
"I have watched my son mature into a well-rounded and respectful young man with a healthy curiosity and a real sense of caring about his broader community." ~ RSGC Parent
Our teachers challenge and inspire boys to reach higher and go further. Our teachers ignite and model a love of learning. Our programs open the minds of our boys to new horizons, new thinking and new possibilities.
The best version of himself understands that “manners maketh men.” The best version of himself is an inquisitive, creative and collaborative problem-solver, and has a strong academic preparation that opens doors in his future. The best version of himself is engaged in a breadth of experiences, takes initiative and honours his commitments. The best version of himself is cultivated through authentic relationships with outstanding educators who are passionate about their students and learning.
We believe that boys come to school to learn and that above all else, we should tend to that with great care. We believe that school should be challenging and meaningful. We believe that knowledge matters; our collective future relies on us knowing more than we do today and acting purposefully on what we learn.
We believe that each boy should be known and loved and that learning takes place within relationships. Our boys bring all of themselves to school. Their unique character should be seen and honoured. We believe joy and laughter belong here.
We believe that boys can be good and ambitious at the same time. They should be held to a high standard. Sometimes, pushing our boys to be more, to do more, or to act more thoughtfully and courageously, is the most loving thing we can do as adults. Here, boys are held accountable for their choices.
We believe in character and in doing the right thing. We believe in caring for one another, in integrity and putting others before ourselves. We continue to be inspired by our founders who insisted that “Manners Maketh Men.”
We believe that boys should ask spiritual questions. These questions are central to a full and purposeful life. All are welcome here: we celebrate our diverse and multi-faith community and honour our Anglican traditions.
We believe that scholarship and service are twin aims. Whenever we can, we make connections with the city and world beyond our gate, to learn from others and to share what we have learned, and to serve wherever we can help. We believe in being a positive force in the world, and that knowledge and duty grow together.
Royal St. George's College is an independent school for boys located in The Annex neighbourhood of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The school admits boys from Grades 3 through 12. Our mission is to challenge and inspire each of our students to become the best version of himself.
