A Bright Future for All Students
Article from the Fall 2021 edition of Optimum Magazine
An understanding of the true scope of this investment towards a stronger academic future is something that Lara Unsworth '95, Head of Community Relations, wants to share with anyone who has or may be thinking of donating to any of these programs. “All great independent schools understand that having a robust financial assistance program is essential to the long-term sustainability of the school, and to nurturing a strong, diverse and vibrant school community.”
“In the Enrollment office at STS, I see the profound impact of removing financial barriers for amazing students to attend our school first-hand. Our financial assistance program literally changes the lives of many incredible young people, and they in turn, add to our community in countless positive ways. With a focus on great kids attending STS, not on their ability to pay, we are attracting the brightest, and most innovative, creative and caring students in the region. That sets our school apart.”

As we [mark] 50 extraordinary years of independent private education, we are keeping our gaze fixed firmly on the horizon - and inviting you to share in the journey. With the support of our school community through class bursaries, fundraising initiatives, personal donations, and the establishment of named funds and scholarships, we will continue to make the gift of an STS education accessible for a wide range of students. We like to think of it as planting a new seed each year; a seed which will eventually grow into a forest as mighty and beautiful as the wooded areas of our campus — filled with happiness, warmth, and belonging.
