“From 18 months to 18 years, HSC is where I grow into my best self.”

At Hillfield Strathallan College, students grow into a sense of their abilities and a sense of themselves.

by Carly Holmstead, Hillfield Strathallan College 


What does joy look like? It’s the high five a Grade 6 rugby player receives from their Grade 8 teammate after their first start. It’s the Grade 11 math class examining parabolic arches by shooting basketballs in the gym. It's the smile on the face of a Montessori student who can see a seedling peeking through the earth where they once planted a seed.

Joy is found all over Hillfield Strathallan College (HSC). From the moment a student walks onto our 50+ acre campus in Hamilton, Ontario, their journey begins.

They grow up in a strong, healthy community whose members share their zest for learning. They are ready to take on the world and possess the confidence to succeed without any fear of failure because they have had the unwavering support of family, faculty, staff and alumni. HSC students are ready to make a difference—whether it be in their post-secondary pursuits, in their communities, or any envisioned endeavour.

From academics to arts to athletics, our facilities feature upgraded gymnasiums and fitness studios, tennis centre, artsplex auditorium as well as specialized classrooms including dedicated science labs, visual arts studios, learning commons, music rooms and a community lunch hall.

Our dedicated faculty deliver a curriculum that ignites curiosity, builds excitement around learning and encourages students to explore their potential. Starting as early as 18 months in our Junior and Montessori Schools, students drive their desire to learn through inquiry and imagination. Our Middle School students in Grades 5 through 8 discover who they are and what their interests are in a positive and supportive environment. In our Senior School, students in Grades 9 through 12 expand their horizons and take ownership of the educational pathways leading them into promising futures. The graduate who emerges from HSC is prepared with the skills needed to live and lead with purpose as the best version of themselves.
