While the Whitby campus is closed, we are fully engaged in teaching and learning via our Distance Learning Plan.

As educators, administrators and parents, we couldn't be more excited to accept this challenge and turn it into a unique learning opportunity for everyone in our community. Our faculty are busy reimagining the curriculum for distance learning that begins on March 30th, while our administrators are hard at work putting systems and processes in place to ensure successful outcomes for all. 

Building on a 60+ year history of innovation, collaboration, educational excellence, we're confident in our capacity to deliver high-quality instruction that is a combination of interactive, guided and individual learning experiences. We are grateful for the support and inspired by the resilience and optimism of our community. 

We invite you to learn more about our Distance Learning Plan. If you'd like to know more about our educational continuum, then start your journey by clicking on the Whitby Difference page.

Welcome to Whitby School

Whitby was founded in 1958 on the principle that each child must be seen, valued, and understood for achievement to happen, with heart. Our school has come a long way since then, but that core belief is still what drives us every day. 

Is your standard for education as high as ours? Come say hello.
