Who We Are

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.

Today’s Grammar School enrols 500 students, encompasses two campuses, and extends from Junior Primary to graduation year.

For a guided tour, or to arrange for your child to spend a day at the school, call our Admissions Assistant, Faith-Anne Kyle, at 902 406-3001.

Our Mission

The Halifax Grammar School helps students discover their passions, develop their potential, and serve the needs of others. We prepare students for university and life by developing confidence and independence through a balanced curriculum in academics, athletics, altruism, and the arts.
