Welcome to York Mills Collegiate Institute. The school is located on York Mills Road between Bayview and Leslie Avenues.

The school offers a wide range of curricular programs, including French Immersion, from grades 10-12. Grade 9 courses are not available at the school. With approximately ninety percent of our graduates applying to university, most courses are offered as academic in Grade 10 and University/College preparation in grades 11 and 12.

Our 1100 plus students and staff work together to create a learning environment that is clean, orderly, safe and secure. Over the years, York Mills C.I. has established a very fine reputation for academic achievement and for providing students with opportunities to participate and develop their leadership skills through their involvement in a variety of extracurricular activities.
