Principal's Message

Welcome to East York Collegiate Institute! You are now part of a community of kind, caring adults and engaged students numbering close to 1100. Our dedicated teaching staff is complemented by a team of committed educational support, administrative, custodial and cafeteria staff. We not only welcome you, but undertake to make every effort to assist you with our educational and personal needs. 

The East York Student Agenda is integral to your academic success. It has been designed to help you self-identify your preferred learning style as well as to provide you with information that you need to know to plan ahead. It contains important dates at EYCI as well as monthly and weekly calendars. It is imperative that you use these tools to make it a habit to be proactive instead of reactive. Make certain that you apprise yourself of your preferred learning style and advocate for its use in your classes on a regular basis. Take the time to write down all your homework and other important items such as due dates for projects, tests and exams. In this way you can approximately manage your time. Developing advocacy and time-management skills will go a long way to help ensure your success this year as well as in the future.

It is the responsibility of every student to know and follow the Code of Conduct. As a community member, you are expected to abide by the code and adhere to East York's 3 R's - Respect Yourself, Respect others AND accept Responsibility for all your actions and/or omissions. Adherence ensures a safe, secure and positive learning environment for all. I wish you great success for the school year. Focus on your academics, immerse yourself in East York's rich community and have a terrific year!
