Welcome to The Bishop Strachan School (BSS), Canada’s oldest independent day and boarding school for girls.

We exist to inspire girls to be fearless and educate them to be leaders. We are a university prep school in Toronto for girls in Junior Kindergarten to Grade 12. We are pretty proud of our extraordinary past, super excited about our future and enthusiastically present for the girls who walk through our doors every day.

Find out more about our Culture of Powerful Learning

Even at 150 years old, we have some very fresh ideas about girls’ education.

Our expertise comes from all those decades of experience, along with ongoing research, collaboration and careful listening to our students, teachers and parents. We apply what we know to our day-to-day practices to create a welcoming and innovative place of learning. Our faculty are deliberate about helping each student experience meaningful growth so they are well prepared for life beyond BSS.
