Heydon Park was founded in 1923 (originally named the Edith L. GrovesSchool) to provide educational programs to meet the needs of young women who required programming not offered in their regular school.
This tradition continues today, as Heydon Park Secondary School provides innovative programming and services to female students with learning challenges to help students reach their full potential.
Heydon's Hands-On, Minds-On approach to learning encourages students to use their hands by participating in experiential learning activities and engaging their minds through traditional academics.
Heydon Park's all-girl environment provides students with a safe and nurturing environment so that students feel confident to take more risks with their learning and to be leaders in their community.
At Heydon we offer three different pathways to meet the varying needs of our students;
- Applied / College level credit course for those students entering college or apprenticeships
- Locally Developed / Workplace level credit course for those students entering directly into the workplace and;
- Non-credit courses for those students entering into Community Living or volunteer opportunities
Girls from all over the city of Toronto come to Heydon Park to benefit from our innovative approaches to supporting students with learning challenges.
