Welcome to CGS
Your neighbourhood private school since 1986.
The New Normal - In School or Online
~The Colman Family
It has been an unprecedented time in education due to COVID 19 since the closing of schools on March 12, 2020. Entire curriculums and school life had to be moved online in record time, in both the public and private systems. Our dedicated staff threw their hearts and souls into creating a new routine for students and families as quickly as possible. Our CGS Spirit at Home program was born.
We look forward with great anticipation to returning to our school home in September 2020. If circumstances prevent our return, however, CGS is ready. If you're nervous about the 'new normal', please contact Kelly Scott, Director of Admission, at email@example.com to book an online chat. Learn more about how CGS is leaning into the challenges ahead to create the best possible early years programming, at school or online.
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 and public speaking contest and cross country and track and 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."
