Everything STS students benefit from today is due to the generosity of past generations of donors. Your gift – of any size – makes our STS even better and ensures we are creating our school's bold future together.
The STS community is steeped in a culture of participation. At school, students have an astounding number of choices outside of their core subjects that help them discover themselves, and the world.
Did you know that tuition fees and some government grants cover all operating expenses, and fundraising dollars provide any program or campus enhancements? To give every student in each generation the true STS experience, we rely on donors like you.
This year’s annual giving priorities embrace the global competencies our students need to be successful and affirm our commitment to excellence in education through Head’s Initiatives, investing in our students through Scholarships and Bursaries, advancing professional development to ensure STS attracts, develops and retains exceptionally talented and committed faculty through Teaching Excellence, and a Kindergarten - Grade 2 playground which will ensure physical and social development in a safe environment for our Kindergarten to Grade 2 students.
Gifts directed to the Head’s Initiatives provide the most flexibility to the Head of School to respond and direct funds where they are needed the most. Donations to Head’s initiatives have in the past supported exceptional programming, upgrades to facilities, updates in our design and innovation spaces, and overall campus enhancements that the community benefits from today.
Kindergarten - Grade 2 Playground
This playground will be designed with the K-2 learning community in mind. The playground will ensure physical and social development in a safe environment for our Kindergarten to Grade 2 students, keeping in line with our strong commitment to health, safety, character-building and community at STS.
Scholarships and Bursaries
We’ve seen an increase in demand for financial assistance due to the pandemic and downturn in the local economy. Removing financial barriers, and bringing exceptional young minds and hearts of character to STS, fosters spectacular learning experiences for our entire school community.
Thanks to our donors,15% of our students are on some form of need-based and/or merit-based scholarships this school year.
Please help us keep our families together by donating to scholarships and bursaries.
Help attract, develop, and retain the most engaging and innovative subject matter experts. Let’s further STS as a centre for teaching excellence by augmenting professional development to bring advances in academic research to the classroom. This is essential as we continue to ensure the best people, strategies and learning are available to our community.
