Hudson College, Toronto, Ontario

Locations

Hudson College is a private, non-denominational, co-educational day school offering a balanced curriculum from Pre-Kindergarten through to University/College entrance. Situated on a 4.5 acre campus in central Toronto, Hudson is dedicated to developing the whole child - academically, socially, and emotionally - in a safe and nurturing environment. Fully accredited and inspected by the Ontario Ministry of Education, we offer a full range of credits leading to the Ontario Secondary School Diploma, which in turn prepares students for entry into universities in Canada, the U.S., the U.K. and other countries around the world.

Hudson College focuses on every student's personal needs in education and learning. This is evident in the College's Total Personal Support™ system. At Hudson, every student is educated, not as part of a group of students, but as an individual person in a supportive, nurturing environment. Hudson College provides its students with a set of skills and value positions that will enable each, as individuals, to attain both future personal and academic success for the betterment not only of themselves, but also the wider community.

All of our students embody the spirit of the College. They are very active in school life and participate in all kinds of co- and extra-curricular activities and programs, as well as providing volunteer help to other students. This spirit of activism and participation results in our students having a strong sense of pride in being a part of the student body at Hudson. Our students love attending Hudson and feel a real sense of ownership in the school.

Our 4.5-acre campus features a large modern school building, over 40,000 ft, housing teaching and recreational facilities, spacious classrooms, administrative headquarters, a large gymnasium, a state-of-the-art research centre and cross-curricular lab.

Our enriched academic program and superior curriculum is integrated through our unique Smart Skills Program™, helping students to develop in 5 critical areas: Speech Arts, Mathematics, Analytical Writing, Research, and Team Building.

Our wide variety of extra-curricular clubs, sports, and activities provide many opportunities for students to enjoy student life at Hudson, and to learn beyond the classroom. Most importantly, our bright and creative students, from all different cultures and backgrounds, help to embody the diversity and spirit of Hudson.

House system

Beginning in Grade 8, all Hudson students belong to one of four distinguished Houses - The Maritimes House; The Great Lakes House; The Prairies House; and The Rockies House. The House System is an important part of our community. All Faculty and Staff also belong to one of the four Houses.

The House System fosters a sense of community, belonging, and camaraderie that encourages healthy competition, develops school spirit, and rewards positive actions initiated by students by awarding points for participation in extra-curricular activities. Students proudly wear their House Colours on Spirit Days and House Huddle days as a sign of solidarity and pride with other House members.

Green Huskies

The Green Huskies have student representative at each grade level starting in Grade 3. Their main role as a group is to promote and ensure “acts of green” in daily activities at Hudson. In addition to the promotion of living green and reducing one's ecological footprint through class challenges, the Green Huskies help plan annual events such as Earth Hour and Earth Week. They also help clean-up after each major school event and help plant, maintain our gardens, including our recent butterfly garden addition, around our campus.
