School Profile

Trinity College School is a co-ed boarding community of diverse learners focused on cultivating their passions and succeeding within their own area of expertise. Located one hour east of Toronto, the TCS community is blessed with a 100 acre campus of green fields and outstanding facilities. Established in 1865, TCS places a balanced emphasis on academics, service learning, athletics and the arts – as both a long-held TCS tradition and a rethought, reinvigorated approach to 21st century education.
