Established in 1958, Halifax Grammar School is the leading independent, co-educational day school in Atlantic Canada. From Junior Primary through Grade 12, Halifax Grammar School inspires and supports students to flourish, to learn, and to serve through a balanced curriculum of academics, athletics, and the arts. At the core of the Senior School curriculum is the International Baccalaureate Diploma, regarded as the best preparation for success at university. HGS Alumni have earned many notable achievements, among them Rhodes scholarships, leadership positions in all sectors of society, and even an Academy Award. Yet, the Halifax Grammar School experience is more than achievements. It is an environment where passionate teachers challenge students to develop confidence through independence, where coaches and advisors encourage students to pursue excellence through effort, and where a community fosters in students a lasting commitment to helping others.
