Goal 3

Goal 3

We commit to building a sustainable future for the School.

 

In addition to building new facilities and renovating older facilities – a commitment of the 150th Anniversary Campaign – we will also prioritize:

Supporting a healthy enrolment

Our collective vision for the School’s future includes a healthy balance between day and boarding students as well as Canadian and international students.

We will work to reduce financial barriers for students who would benefit from the TCS experience by increasing annual financial assistance and offering select tuition incentives.

We will further target emerging markets and ask for the help of our global ambassadors in supporting our admissions efforts.

Increasing the endowment

With a view to having one of the largest and most secure endowments of all Canadian independent schools, through our 150th Anniversary Campaign we aim to grow the School’s endowment to $36 million by 2015 and $50 million by 2018. This goal, as well as significant growth targets beyond 2018, will help ensure the School’s financial sustainability and allow us to award bright, talented young people the opportunity to join our learning community.

Creating additional revenue streams

The expansion of our Discovery Camp and the addition of academic summer programmes such as Pre-Boarding Academies, demonstrate the ability to expand our programme beyond the school year. We will continue to find effective uses for our campus when not in use by students by expanding on our current offerings and further encouraging facility rentals.

Committing to an environmental sustainability plan

We will formalize an environmental sustainability plan, built on the outcomes of a recent environmental audit. This will commit us all to setting goals and taking action to ensure the TCS campus, curriculum and community are leaders in the protection of our local and global environment. The plan will further the many grassroots and campus-wide environmental initiatives already taking place at the School, as well as forging new practices and systems that will lead to sustainable facilities, operations and school culture.
