BSS is located on seven acres in a residential area in the heart of Toronto. With a diverse student body, BSS is home to students from around the world. BSS offers a full co-curricular programme, that extends from student leadership, the arts, athletics to academic teams. Our campus is a true intersection of old and new, with our main building an architectural icon constructed in 1915, connected to our modern, bright and functional Junior School built in 2004, attached to a new wing opening in September 2017. There is a culture of powerful learning that exists at BSS. The focus on academics is supplemented with a strong sense of community, filled with co-curricular programmes and international exposure.

BSS Boarding welcomes Grade 7 to 12 students from Canada and around the world. Our girls create powerful friendships with peers and generate learning experiences that last a lifetime. Our students are highly individual yet share an important objective: to explore every possibility for themselves at BSS.
