For over 30 years, City School has offered semestered Grade 11 and 12 University and College courses. New this year is our Grade 9 program, which focusses on environmental activism and community leadership, and is tied to our status as an EcoSchool with Platinum status.

City is a haven for the creative, motivated and socially-minded student, and a lively alternative to the mainstream. The focus of our school is ethical citizenship. We're a compassionate community; our members are involved and evolving. Together. 

Despite our small size, we offer a spectrum of courses in the Humanities, Mathematics, Arts, and Sciences. In addition to our core academic program, we provide practical courses that reflect student interest, such as Life Strategies, Exercise Science, Nutrition, and Guitar. All our courses are enriched by field trips, guest speakers and experiential learning opportunities.

City School is at the base of Bathurst Street in a beautiful setting. Classrooms look out over Lake Ontario, the Toronto Islands and the downtown skyline. We share our building with the Waterfront School and the Harbourfront Community Centre. We have access to a large gym, dance studio, and cafe. The TTC provides frequent service to our location, whether from the Union Station LRT or the Bathurst bus. Bicyclists can take the Martin Goodman Trail right to our door. There is no car parking on site. But bikes are very welcome!
