Monarch Park Collegiate Institute (Gr 09 - 12)
Monarch Park Collegiate is a 'Global School'; with this philosophy, we focus on Human Rights Education, Peace Education, International Development, Environmental Education and Multiculturism. This philosophy is supported by the fact that our students and staff represent over 70 different countries and speak almost as many languages. Our multicultural community is encouraged to pursue excellence and lifelong learning. Our program also supports this philosophy in individual subject areas and in our International Baccalaureate Program. We pride ourselves on our welcoming, safe and supportive school community. Students find their place in the world at Monarch Park.Read more

International Development Program
Partnering with the Community
We have a global vision, but we also work with our local community!
We work with many local agencies (The Toronto Intergenerational Partnership, Red Door Shelter, various Community Centres, and Out of the Cold programs, for example) to support community members and to provide leadership development and Co-operative Education opportunities for our students.
Learning and Environmental Special Needs
Our school is barrier free. The Independent Living Program supports students with Developmental Disabilities. These students are fully engaged in the life of our school. We also offer a program for students with physical disabilities; these students receive support in academic classes. Our students with learning disabilities are also supported by an excellent team.
The Arts at MPC
The Arts are well represented through comprehensive Dramatic Arts, Music (vocal and instrumental) and Visual/Media Arts Programs. Our dynamic Arts Department organizes Arts Nights, many Drama Presentations, participates in the Sears Festival and supports school events by providing music and tech support.
English Language Learners
The English as a Second Language (ESL) Program is extensive and helps our New Canadians study math, science, history, dramatic arts, and geography in an English-assisted environment.
