DAY 301: HE DECIDES “YES,
I’M UP TO THE CHALLENGE.”

Why UCC?

Because at Upper Canada College, endless opportunities have awaited boys for more than 180 years. After even a brief tour, you can see yourself here: peerless facilities, countless sports and clubs, compassionate and inspiring faculty members, not to mention a lifelong network of friends.

Because our International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme distinguishes you from the pack. Globally recognized and respected by university admissions departments, the International Baccalaureate diploma is your “gold card” to enhanced post-secondary opportunities.

Because our vast, modern campus is second to none. Come visit our sweeping 16-hectare campus, twin-pad arena, professional-calibre theatre, inspiring and airy art rooms, a fully equipped training and workout room, all-season fields and more.

Because the Wernham and West Centre for Learning is world renowned for teaching students valuable learning strategies that produce lifelong learners. With a mandate to share its learning with educators internationally, the goal is to help students manage workloads now — and for a lifetime of success.

Because our Norval Outdoor Education Centre just outside Toronto is our 100-year-old private nature sanctuary that’s been instilling the values of wonder, environmental stewardship and inspired, wireless learning for generations of UCC students.

Because our world-class teachers inspire, focus and encourage each and every boy to explore potentials and talents they didn’t even know they had. Our educators bring into practice our promise of an individualized learning environment in which every boy is known. They also develop and share best practices in teaching techniques, ensuring their expertise on boys’ learning has maximum resonance.

Because character education has always been woven through all facets of College life, and never more so than now. In an effort to continually instill values of resilience, curiosity, leadership and initiative — be it in the classroom, on the field or in the theatre — innovation in character education stands to benefit your son now and into adulthood.

Because our world-class boarding program, with 89 Upper School students, offers the entire student body an ongoing lesson in diversity, international perspective and acceptance. Bringing the world to UCC benefits all, especially as maximum effort is made to integrate our boarders into College life, both in class and socially.
