School Differentiators

Branksome Hall is the only all-girls school offering the International Baccalaureate program in Toronto.
 
We are a school defined by innovation and an innovator's mindset - a place that embraces best practices to ensure that our students are well prepared for a future that is constantly evolving. Branksome students can participate in Canada's only student business accelerator program, Noodle, where they create business ideas and make a social impact. With ideas like creating a student ambassador program to take action on climate change, students are tackling world issues and competing for a $10,000 grant to support their business.
 
Branksome Hall's campus is located in the middle of Toronto, Canada's largest and most diverse city. Our urban setting provides many opportunities for our boarding students to explore the city's cultural attractions and shopping districts - all just outside our doors!

International service trips have included Costa Rica and South Africa.

Our Grade 9 Global Leaders Program has our students spending time at our sister school, Branksome Hall Asia, located in Jeju Island, South Korea.
