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.

“The resilience of our entire school community over the past few months has given me confidence in knowing that together, we are capable of handling whatever comes our way.”

From the Headmaster

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

The one thing that remains constant during these unprecedented times is that most certainly things are going to change. As I write to you today, our boys and faculty are back at the College.

The education landscape looks much different, but teaching and learning continues and our mission to know and love our boys remains our top priority.
 
Never has the “heartbeat” of the College been so strong - the outpouring of support, kind words and generous acts from our extended RSGC community has made a major impact on where we find ourselves today. We know that we never stand alone.
 
The philanthropic generosity of the RSGC community gave us the resources to transition quickly to alternate learning models and to make health and safety upgrades, so our families could return to campus with confidence that students would be safe. I am so very grateful for this. Thank you.
 
Today, I ask for your continued financial support of the College – funds needed to ensure that no matter what challenges we face in the future, our mission of creating life-long Georgians will continue.
 
Click here to see how your gift made a profound impact last year and allowed the College to pivot quickly to make the needed adjustments for the return to class this fall. Thank you for continuing to support the College. Your gifts as parents and members of the community help us to continue a long-standing tradition of funding enhancements to the College’s facilities and programs.
 
RSGC, Stronger Together

  • Headmaster’s Initiatives

    Health and Safety
    The health, safety and overall wellness of our students, staff and their families will remain our top priority in considering new initiatives. 

    Student Wellness
    Mental health is a critical part of well-being and must be integrated into everyday life at the College. Our wellness initiatives may include speakers and outreach opportunities, increased resources for our social workers and other mental health professionals, and community building activities designed to build joy and laughter into the school day. 

    Tools for Remote Learning
    A possible transition to increased distance learning will require additional resources, technology and training to help teachers, students and our families as they navigate this “new normal.”
  • Georgian Unity Fund

    The Georgian Unity Fund focuses on tuition assistance for current families who have been impacted by changes in the economy and require financial support to continue to be able to have their sons attend the College. RSGC made a commitment to do whatever we could to ensure that our Georgian family can stay together despite the downturn in the economy and the financial uncertainty for so many of our families. The goal of this fund is to ensure that none of our boys are unable to continue at the College because of the financial hardship brought on by this global pandemic.
  • Manners Maketh Men Scholarship and Bursary Fund

    The College continues to focus on the funding of scholarships for deserving boys who would otherwise not be able to afford an RSGC education. 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 background, including students who would be an excellent fit for the RSGC family, but are unable to afford an independent school education. This year, six boys receiving financial aid have qualified for full tuition and related expenses; the most full-tuition scholars in the College’s recent history.
  • 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 up to 100% tuition support to deserving boys from Grades 9-12 and includes:
     
    • Up to 100% tuition
    • Uniform
    • Books
    • School trips and extracurricular expenses
    • Laptop
    • TTC fare
    • Daily lunch
  • Next Generation Georgian Fund

    This endowment fund was established to allow the College to become more financially accessible for our alumni families. This needs-based financial aid is available to all eligible children of alumni applying to Grades 7-12. Eligibility is assessed through a third-party organization such as Apple Financial Services and reviewed with the Bursary Committee of the College.
  • Jonathan Hames ’88 Memorial Fund

    This endowed fund was established by members of the Class of ’88 in memory of their friend and classmate Jonathan Hames ’88 for the purpose of helping boys whose families, due to unexpected circumstances, are unable to fund their final Grade 12 year – ensuring that all boys are able to graduate with their class. A plaque in Jon’s honour has been place on a well-used bench that sits in a nook between the tarmac and turf.
  • Timothy Magee ’95 Memorial Fund

    This fund was established by members of the Classes of ’94 and '95 in memory of their friend Tim Magee '95 for the purpose of supporting student, alumni and faculty Mental Health initiatives at the College. At RSGC, we are committed to consciously building joy at RSGC. Mental health is a critical part of well-being and must be integrated into everyday life at the College. Our wellness initiatives will include speakers and outreach opportunities, increased presence of social workers and other mental health professionals, and community building activities designed to build joy and laughter into the school day. We continue to strive to implement the best in-school practice for adolescent mental health. A plaque in Tim’s honour will be placed on a newly constructed bench near the Chapel to serve as a place to go for reflection and quiet conversation with a friend.
