Town Centre Private Schools is York Region’s only IB Continuum World School. Established in 1986, TCPS offers a Montessori Pre-School program as well as an IB Elementary School and High School giving students the foundation for academic excellence by providing well-rounded programs.
With the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic, TCPS has made significant changes to our school structure to give greater flexibility to our parents.
For the current and 2021-2022 school year, parents of our Pre-School preparatory level, senior preparatory level and grades 1 – 12 students have the option of 5 days a week learning in-class (with enhanced safety protocols) or complete online learning.
Students participating in the complete online learning are taught by their regular class teacher, following the same 9:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. academic schedule and are engaged throughout the academic day interacting with their class teacher, subject teachers and fellow classmates. Teachers continue to provide tutorial support for students who require assistance beyond their regular class time. Visit our Remote Learning page for more details.
Our High school currently uses a trimester system which we feel is more productive and engaging than the quadmester system which is commonly used. Pre-School and Elementary students may enrol throughout the year and High School students can start at the beginning of each Trimester. With our Remote Learning program running successfully as of spring of 2020, our students are fully prepared for the start of school this September, both with Town Centre and those moving on to university.
A before school program 7:00 – 9:00 a.m. and after school program from 3:30 – 6:30 p.m. are included with tuition. In addition to the regular school year, TCPS offers Summer Camps with weekly enrolment and High School Summer Credit Courses.
Todays’ students face an ever-increasing complex and competitive world. Town Centre Private Schools offers prospective students a superior education in a safe, supportive and caring environment where they acquire the knowledge, skills and confidence to succeed in tomorrow’s world.
The Montessori program is flexible with enrolment available full days or half days. Students are prepared for the challenges and expectations of an advanced Elementary curriculum.
TCPS offers an IB Elementary private school program providing a well-rounded academic education guiding and preparing students for the TCPS High School curriculum and Diploma Programme.
Town Centre Private Schools (TCPS) is a co-educational, private high school and IB World School offering university bound courses as well as the IB Diploma Programme.
