Runnymede Collegiate Institute (Gr 09 - 12)
Vestigia Nulla Retrorsum: No Steps Backward
Runnymede Collegiate Institute is proud of its culturally diverse community where rights, respect and responsibility are valued and where learning and teaching in a safe environment are top priorities. We have over 84 years of tradition in both academic and athletic excellence with clear expectations for students in the areas of attendance, performance and achievement. A population of around 650 students makes Runnymede an optimum size to provide recognition for individual merit and yet offer a wide array of co-curricular activities. With a variety of course offerings from computer technology to co-operative education, from modern languages to music, Runnymede meets the needs and interests of its diverse student population.
Masters of Math, Science and Technology Program
Our specialized program is designed for students who excel in these subject areas. You will experience enriched learning in each of the disciplines and have the opportunity to apply your learning to tasks that integrate these three subjects. Students in grades 9, 10 & 11 travel as a class and then may join the regular course of study in grade 12. With the "reach ahead" component, Grade 10 students take Grade 11 Biology in Semester 2. By fostering critical thinking skills using modern technology, students are prepared for post-secondary study in their chosen fields. Read more about Masters of Math, Science and Technology Program
Championship Sports and Athletics Program
With a rich history of athletics at Runnymede, we have led in many team accomplishments along with developing many individuals to further their academic and athletics careers.
We take pride in our athletics! With approximately 20 teams every year, over 100 students, coaches, managers and athletic council members work to ensure that the Runnymede athletic experience is second to none in the TDSB. The goal for all teams is to compete at the highest possible level, with respect and dignity. Teams and individuals at Runnymede have won many regional championships, district championships, and competed in many OFSAA Provincial Championships.

Grade 9 Transition Program
To help make the transition to grade 9 as smooth as possible for our students, we have a number of activities in place. Our "Moving On Up" program held the week before school starts is a chance to participate in workshops that will help students become familiar with new routines, meet their peers and student leaders and develop skills for success as they begin high school.
