Welcome to Kipling Collegiate Institute (KCI), a vibrant, caring, and successful community where every student is recognised as an individual and where the goal is for all students to reach their potential. Our school motto is “Portas Ad Futura Aperimus “ (We open doors to the future). We strive to make this motto a reality. Students attending KCI are not only able to select the traditional academic courses but also participate in exciting opportunities such as the: Specialist High School Major’s (SHSM’s) where organizations such as Amgen Biotech Experience (ABE), partner with the school. This enables us to provide an innovative science education program that introduces students to scientific discovery and builds bridges between school and the real-life biosciences. We also have an ongoing collaboration with York's Lassonde School of Engineering k2i academy.
We provide a supportive and caring environment fostering the talent, and skills of every child. It is our plan that each student experiences success as they develop into life-long learners and leaders. Our ESL programming provides a warm and welcoming environment for new-comers. It ensures that students are supported academically, socially and emotionally.
At Kipling C.I. whilst preparing our students for their future lives in an ever-changing world, we value hard work, good manners, and self-discipline. We benefit from a dedicated and well qualified staff who bring 21st century learning and help students to develop the global competencies that will serve them well beyond their time within high school.
As a member of the KCI family you will be afforded the opportunity to become fully immersed in the life and diverse culture of the school. There are an array of clubs and teams that students may join. We Encourage students to take advantage of the many other opportunities available to become involved in the high school experience beyond the classroom.
I realise that the success of each individual child, as the African proverb states, “Takes a Village”. Thank you KCI families for your support, together we will continue to make a positive difference in our children’s lives.
