About Us

Trinity College School (TCS) is an independent boarding school and day school located on 100 acres of rolling countryside in picturesque Port Hope, Ontario, Canada, one hour’s drive east of Toronto. Our Senior School, Grades 9-12, includes approximately 500 young people, about 60% of whom are boarding students. Our Junior School includes approximately 100 day students from Grade 5 to Grade 8. Established in 1865, TCS is one of Canada's oldest and most respected educational institutions.

Our mission: Developing habits of the heart and mind for a life of purpose and service. Habits like courage, creativity, compassion, integrity and perseverance are ingrained in our liberal arts curriculum and throughout our comprehensive co-curricular programs in athletics, arts and service learning.

In offering a robust boarding program that spans beyond the typical school day, both our boarding and day students find themselves fully engaged in a busy and dynamic learning environment at TCS. In this supportive, inclusive and close-knit community, and with the wise counsel of our staff, students are encouraged to step out of their comfort zone and explore the many opportunities offered here.

In discovering new interests and pursuing passions, every student crafts their own TCS Signature Journey, creating an educational experience that is unique and reveals the potential and power within themselves.

TCS Land Acknowledgement

Trinity College School is located on Michi-Saagiig Anishnaabeg territory. Since time immemorial, this land has been stewarded by Michi-Saagiig Anishnaabeg, Huron-Wendat, Haudenosaunee, Cayuga, and Chippewa Nations and is now also home to many Indigenous Peoples from across Turtle Island and around the world. As a part of colonial history, the 100 acres that TCS stands on have been part of the Johnson-Butler Purchase of 1787 and the Williams Treaty of 1923.

As settlers, we have the responsibility to be stewards of this land in partnership with Indigenous neighbours. We recognize that this is an ecological community where we will respect and protect the flora, fauna, and local water systems, including the Ganaraskè River and Lake Ontari’io.

As treaty people, TCS is committed to reconciliation in our classrooms, in our activism, and in our community at large.

We value our relationships with Indigenous communities and are committed to learning from Indigenous Peoples, cultures and histories.

We will face the truth and educate ourselves about traumatic histories and ongoing inequities endured by Indigenous Peoples. We are committed to active participation in Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation era.

— This land acknowledgement was developed by Grade 5 and 11 TCS students in the spring of 2023 in collaboration with Christine Luckasavitch of Waaseyaa Consulting.
