The school is a hub where the bravest and brightest young minds from across the Greater Toronto Area and beyond come together.
Every day, our Grade 7 to 12 students are emboldened among a community of like-minded peers. They take part in vibrant student life where they become leaders. They learn from outstanding educators, many of whom win awards for their dedication and innovation.
Our traditions are over 110 years strong. UTS opened in 1910, but with a new home and unwavering commitment to our mission, we are setting course for an even more inclusive future.
Gr 7 - 12
Cognitive: Most of all, we embrace our differences, thriving on our diversity. Our greatest achievement is the strength of our community. All are welcome here.
Curriculum: Here, students have greater opportunities to broaden their academic horizons with 10 courses per year in Grades 7 to 9, instead of eight typically offered in Ontario.
Core academics such as the sciences, math and English are balanced with diverse liberal arts.
The Expressive Arts department gives the school a vibrant cultural life with Visual Art, Music, and Drama.
Mind-body balance is built-in with students taking Health and Physical Education until Grade 11, going far beyond physical exercise to teach students strategies for life such as healthy living and mental wellness.
UTS also offers a full Advanced Placement® program, taking a balanced approach to these rigorous courses.
Methodology: A UTS education is transformative. Our school is a hub where the boldest and brightest young minds – from across the Greater Toronto Area and beyond – come together. Rigorous academics are the foundation, but the learning goes much deeper.
Academic Program Overview
The UTS curriculum evolves with the world around us. Curriculum renewal is ongoing as we deepen our culture of inclusion. There is no one story, but many. We continue to widen our scope to embrace underrepresented narratives and groups across the board. Learning themes for younger students focus on Truth and Reconciliation, and Sustainability, grounding them on the most pressing issues of our times.
The synergies of exceptional students, extraordinary educators, and the University of Toronto connection converge. Students come to UTS as engaged young people with big ideas. They graduate as empowered leaders and champions of change with the means to have an impact on our world.
Childcare and Extra/Co-Curriculars
At UTS, students become leaders in their own right, champions of causes, and organizers of major events such as Southern Ontario Model United Nations and the Girls in Technology Conference. An equally robust Athletics Program features more than 30 competitive sports teams, plus plenty of opportunities for fun.
Over 100 different co-curricular activities are offered at UTS, including:
Clubs that range from chemistry to film production, programming to political science, classics and more
Publications such as the school newspapers and yearbook, and multilingual and logic puzzle publications
Committees that drive change such as the Indigenous Solidarity Committee and Gender Equity Committee
Performance groups like our multidisciplinary performance SHOW, Taiko drumming, choirs, and instrumental ensembles
House, a decades-long tradition where students are sorted into one of our four houses (Althouse, Cody, Crawford and Lewis) and compete in athletic, academics and creative feats throughout the year
Athletics from intramurals to elite competition
Many of these initiatives are led by students, with support and guidance from UTS staff. Students regularly launch new co-curriculars, so if there's something missing students can create their own.
