Harbord Collegiate Institute


Since 1892, Harbord Collegiate Institute has had a long tradition of academic excellence and a faculty committed to preparing students well for postsecondary studies and for their role as responsible and productive members of our society. The school has a current enrolment of 1100+ students and a staff of over 95. Harbord offers many university and college preparation courses leading to a wide range of postsecondary destinations. Our focus on social justice, equity and the environment sets the framework for a dynamic education. More than one-third of our teachers and support staff speak multiple languages, reflecting Toronto's rich diversity. Staff and students work together to promote a safe and nurturing environment.

Harbord is the only school in the TDSB designated an International Languages School offering many languages such as Mandarin, Cantonese, Spanish, Portuguese, and French (including immersion and extended). The school also has an ESL program that meets the needs of students who have recently arrived in Canada. The school celebrates its cultural diversity and strongly promotes the values of equity and social justice.  We were awarded the TDSB Anne Hope Award for Social Justice and Equity and have earned Platinum certification as an Eco-School.
