Welcome to Grammar

Established in 1958, the Halifax Grammar School is the leading independent, co-educational day school in Atlantic Canada.
At Grammar, we believe all students should discover their passions and develop their potential. Every day, we prepare students for university and for life by developing confidence and independence through a balanced curriculum in academics, athletics, altruism and the arts – because when young people truly recognize their reason and purpose in life, they always make the world a better place.

    Three Great Chefs, One Great Evening

    Grammar's Annual Three Great Chefs, One Great Evening will take place on Friday, October 14th at Atlantica Hotel Halifax.

    This 5-course meal paired with wine brings together the Grammar community in support of Student Travel Assistance. Three incredible chefs from across Nova Scotia will prepare the courses and work with wineries to pair the wines. This is more of a casual evening with a reception starting at 6 pm and dinner at 7 pm. There is no music or dancing...it is all about the food, wine, and people!
    Tickets will go live shortly. If you do purchase tickets, please indicate your child's grade, and we will seat you with other parents from your child's grade or school.
