The next stage in your child’s education – high school – is an important one.
Deciding where to attend high school can be a challenging decision for a family to make. It is essential to have as much information as possible before finalizing your choice. The number one way to research this information is through open house visits and experiencing the school’s culture as a student visitor.
To aid with your decision we have talked to our parents and students and asked them why they chose Hudson College as their High School.
Included in their feedback is that Hudson College provides all the elements of a large high school experience whilst maintaining the connectedness of a small school. Through this we are able to individualize your child’s experience to ensure they receive a balanced education, in a safe and supportive environment, that allows them to pursue their interests and grow as an individual. This is why we believe Hudson College offers the best independent High School experience in Toronto.
We are consistently ranked the number one co-ed school experience in Toronto by the readers of City Parent newsmagazine and here is why we believe we can offer this experience to your child:
Turning Learners into Leaders
At Hudson, we pride ourselves on developing the young leaders of tomorrow – today. This starts with the grade nine transition program and continues through to graduation. Students are encouraged to explore their personal definition of leadership while taking part in a variety of programs including: Me to We, We Day, Hudson’s Heroes, Multicultural Clubs, Duke of Edinburgh, drama productions, Open Mic performances and a variety of sporting activities. Through this personal growth and skill development the graduates from Hudson are fully prepared to face the challenges of post high school life.
The Three-semester System
The unique semester system at Hudson College allows students to avoid the anxiety of facing up to eight courses at one time. By breaking up the workload into a more manageable schedule, while providing time everyday for study and homework completion, Hudson students are able to pursue more extra-curricular endeavours after school. This system also provides graduating students with finalized grades for university applications far earlier than most other schools in Toronto. This plays a key role in our university success rates and results in all of our students moving on to the post-secondary institute of their choosing. Yes, 100%!
A Balanced Experience
Hudson offers a full high school experience, whether it be school dances, spirit week, student government to school newspaper, science/environment to dance/art/music, to both house leagues and varsity sports teams, to community outreach, to opportunities to travel (e.g. Europe) or volunteer experiences abroad. If there is an interest by our student body we find a way to provide the experience to satisfy it. At Hudson we believe all of these experiences are important to the development of well-rounded individuals, while maintaining a focus on academic excellence.
Reputation and University Acceptance
It is no surprise that universities rank schools. Our track record for university/college acceptance is proof of our success and reputation. Our graduates are studying at places such as: University of Toronto, McMaster, McGill, Queen’s, Berkley, Purdue, Baylor and Parsons School of Design in New York. Our reputation has grown to the point where other prestigious schools such as Penn State have reached out to our students wanting to present to them in order to recruit our talent.
These are a few key reasons why we believe Hudson College is the best High School experience in Toronto. We invite you to come on by and see for yourself. If you haven’t already been to Hudson then please join us at one of our open houses, or arrange for a personal tour with our admissions team.
