Town Centre Private Schools (TCPS) is a leading private school in the Greater Toronto Area, drawing students from York Region, the City of Toronto and Durham Region.

Today’s students face an ever-increasing complex and competitive world. TCPS 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.

Established in 1986, Town Centre Private Schools is an International Baccalaureate® World School providing students with the foundation for academic excellence and a well-rounded program.   TCPS offers a Montessori Pre-School program as well as an IB Elementary School and a Private High School with an optional IB Diploma Programme. TCPS is registered with the Ministry of Education. Prior enrolment in a Montessori Pre-School program is not a prerequisite for admission to our Pre-School, Elementary or High School programs.

Montessori Pre-School Program

Prospective students may enrol in the Montessori Pre-School program as young as 18 months of age with or without toilet training. The Pre-School offers a flexible program allowing students to attend full days or half days and enrolments are accepted throughout the year. The TCPS Montessori program includes instruction in Language, Mathematics, Social Science, French, Computer Studies, Physical Education, and the Orff Music program. Commencing at the age of 4 in our Preparatory classes, students embark on a combined Montessori and IB Primary Years Programme.  The IB is an excellent complement to the Montessori program.

A Pre-School Summer Camp program is offered during July and August with the option of weekly enrolment. Learn more about our Montessori Pre-School program.

Elementary Program

All students entering the Elementary school are automatically enrolled in the IB Primary Years Programme (grades 1 – 5) or IB Middle Years Programme (grades 6 – 8).  The Elementary program offers a well-rounded, academic education preparing and guiding students towards university placement. TCPS provides enrichment in the core subjects of English, Mathematics, Science, History, and Geography. In addition to the core subjects, French, Music, Computer Studies, and Physical Education are taught by teachers who specialize in these fields of study.

An Elementary Summer Camp is offered during July and August with the option of weekly enrolment. Learn more about our Private Elementary School program.

High School Program

Town Centre Private Schools offer a co-educational, private High School and an IB World School with advanced university bound courses. Students have the option of taking the IB Diploma Programme (DP) in grades 11 and 12. This allows graduates to earn both the Ontario Secondary School Diploma and the IB Diploma. Town Centre provides a rigorous academic program in order to fully prepare students for the demands of university studies. We challenge our students, but at the same time we provide them with the support they need to rise to these challenges. All courses at Town Centre are taught at the university entrance level.

Students also have the opportunity to earn additional Ministry credits during the month of July.
