Hawthorn School

For Girls

We believe that guiding each child throughout their formative years to uncover, appreciate, and share their unique, benevolent talents is our most valuable collective endeavour.

About Hawthorn School

Hawthorn is the only independent, Catholic-inspired, all-girl school in Toronto that provides character education, personal mentorship, and a classical liberal arts education that is university preparatory.


We respect the shared goals of our students and their families. We pride ourselves not only on preparing the girls for a postsecondary education, with a 100% university acceptance rate, but also on helping them to succeed in their life’s path – no matter what it may be.

Hawthorn School Daycare offers children aged 18 months to 4 years old a loving, nurturing, and caring environment.

Students in the Junior Program (Junior Kindergarten & Senior Kindergarten) are exposed to a variety of subjects.

In the Lower School (Grades 1 to 7) students develop a love for learning, and build social skills and work habits.

Hawthorn’s Upper School (Grades 8 to 12) delivers an ambitious liberal arts education, preparing the leaders of tomorrow.


Thanks to an education that promotes both academic excellence and character formation, Hawthorn girls face the world with creative tenacity, intellectual brilliance, and an uncommon spirit of service to others.
