HTS is a not-for-profit independent school and is a registered Canadian charity that complies with the regulations set forth by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). This means that we devote all of our resources (funds, staff and our campus) to our primary purpose – delivering an outstanding educational program for our learners. Because we’re a not-for-profit organization, your investment in our school has a tremendous impact. Every cent of your contribution is invested in our incredible programs, people and spaces. This is the independent school difference.
The support we have received from generous parents, staff and alumni has enabled HTS to grow into the school it is today. Donations are a critical source of funding which allows us to provide an exceptional education and a state-of-the-art learning environment for all of our learners.
Our volunteers are key to the sense of community at HTS. Our parent volunteers model community building inside and out of our walls. The amount of time that our parents commit to support and grow our community is humbling. What we know for certain is that every gift of time and resource ensures that our learning community is innovative and inspiring for all learners.
Through donor support, we have recently been able to accomplish:
Student Financial Aid
In the 2017-2018 school year, 17 students benefited from over $208,000 in financial aid. Funds designated to Student Financial Aid are directed to our endowment in support of scholarships, awards and bursaries for current and incoming students.
In 2018, flexible mathematics classrooms and innovative breakout rooms were created and introduced to serve as spaces that foster and encourage both group collaboration and opportunities for students to guide their own learning independently. The Fashion Forward Club saw an unanticipated but welcomed growth in popularity which led to additional funds from the Head’s Discretionary Fund to be allocated to the Club. Evidence of the innovation and creativity of over 60 students was proudly showcased during the Haute Design Event at the beginning of April. The ability to foster innovation and creativity was made possible by donors like you.
Graduation Endowment Fund
The Graduation Endowment Fund was established in 2006 by parents of the graduating class. They created this fund so that the income from the fund would provide a bursary for a Senior School student who would otherwise not be able to attend our school.
HTS is proud that the first beneficiary of this fund graduated from HTS in 2016. Every year the parents of the graduating class are asked to donate to this fund so that students can continue to be financially assisted to have the same incredible educational experience to which our children have been privy.
