Elmwood’s vision is to be the most innovative girls’ school in Canada and to operate at the forefront of girls’ education globally. Now, more than ever, women are at the centre of the social, political and economic dialogue, acting with courage and integrity in the face of challenge and leading change.
Senior School is all about preparing our students to enter university. Our students benefit from an educational environment that stresses higher-level critical thinking and inquiry and research skills, allowing them to develop a broad basis of knowledge and abilities while gaining an in-depth understanding of subjects of most interest to them. This rigorous academic program, along with strong co-curriculars and leadership opportunities helps Elmwood girls gain acceptance to the universities of their choice, often with generous entrance scholarships.
Many universities actively seek out full IB Diploma students in their recruitment strategies, offering incentives such as early acceptance, scholarships and credit for first-year courses. Alternatively, some students may choose from a wide array of IB Certificate courses in subjects that are of particular interest to them. In addition, all Elmwood students graduate with the Ministry of Education diploma (Ontario Secondary School Diploma).
Senior School includes the following grades:
- Grade 9– 14 years old by December 31st of the academic year
- Grade 10– 15 years old by December 31st of the academic year
- Grade 11– 16 years old by December 31st of the academic year
- Grade 12– 17 years old by December 31st of the academic year
Elmwood graduates leave our school with the skills, work ethic and knowledge they need in order to be successful in university and beyond.
