Welcome to CGS
Your neighbourhood private school since 1986.
Creating a Safe Space for Families
"My husband and I made the decision to move our two boys to CGS because of COVID and all its associated unknowns. CGS was exactly what we were looking for in a school, both during these tumultuous times and in general: a warm, welcoming and nurturing educational environment. Our boys’ transitions to Senior Kindergarten and Grade 3 were seamless. Within days, it was as though they’d never been anywhere else. We couldn’t be happier with the exceptional protocols CGS put in place for our children to safely return to in-class learning. We are so appreciative of the community and security offered by CGS, and look forward to many more years at this wonderful school."
~ Erica and Brook H.
"We did not envision enrolling our daughter in a new school in the midst of a global pandemic but that’s where we found ourselves in the summer of 2020. We wanted a school that would challenge her academically as well as put advanced health and safety measures in place so we could confidently send her to school in-person. We are so thankful we found CGS. Our daughter is thriving in their environment (in-person and virtual) and the school has created a safe and secure space for her in the midst of uncertainty."
~ The Howe Family
At CGS, we believe in a balanced approach for your child's education.
Our challenging, personalized academic curriculum is complemented by our exceptional arts, public speaking and physical education programming. We place a strong emphasis on character and cultural education and mindfulness.
Children usually come to us well before they can read and often before they can even hold a pencil. It is our privilege to nurture them through their early stages of learning - from reading their first book in JK to writing their first essay in Grade 3.
Our caring CGS staff is there to see that your child thrives academically and socially. Our small class sizes ensure no child falls through the cracks. Programming is structured yet flexible, to support students at all levels of their development.
The days are busy at CGS.
Along with our core curriculum, students study French, music, physical education, visual arts and mindfulness.
There are many ways for students to discover their special interests and talents outside the classroom at CGS. The calendar is packed with opportunities for students to build skill and confidence over time.
Here are some of the extras you'll find at CGS ~ monthly school-wide assemblies hosted by students, a fully produced musical, skating and ski days, student government elections, an annual science fair, a public speaking contest and track & field championships. We also offer after school programs including Extended French (100% immersion), Robotics and Art.
"Our children have had outstanding experiences at CGS. We are thrilled that their formative years have been spent in such a nurturing environment."
"We visited several private schools in the area and were fortunate that one of them was CGS. When we entered the school, we immediately got a sense that this would be the right place for our child."
"Our son started JK this past September and the experience for him and for us has been totally positive. We are thrilled with the academic programs."
