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 known it to be true, holding strong with 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 in a strong belief in the power of our students to change the world for the better. While at BSS, girls learn first-hand that they can do anything – with experiential, problem- and project-based learning at the heart of what we do.

Looking to the future, we’re thrilled to open a brand new building with state-of-the-art facilities that will integrate STEM and the arts like never before, designed with creativity, collaboration and out-of-the-box thinking in mind.
