The Bishop Strachan School Story

Since 1867, we have believed that girls deserve a strong academic foundation. Though this was once a radical concept, we’ve always stood by it, remaining dedicated to our mission: Inspire Girls to be Fearless. Educate Girls to be Leaders. A not-for-profit charitable organization, BSS was built on philanthropy. Our curriculum and teaching approach is based on the belief that our students have the power to change the world for the better. While at BSS, girls discover first-hand that they can do anything – with experiential, problem and project-based learning at the heart of what we do.
