Kipling Collegiate Institute's Mission Statement

Kipling Collegiate Institute (KCI) is a diverse community school with a strong academic focus that is enhanced by our new, unique Math, Science & Technology program (MST).  This expanded range of programming enables students to discover subjects that captivate their interest, foster a passion for learning & develop the global competencies necessary for a successful transition beyond high school.  

At KCI, we believe in nurturing the needs of the whole learner. Beyond an excellent academic program, we offer students the opportunity for active community service and provide a wide range of clubs and activities. We are an inclusive school & we prioritize respect, dignity & understanding for each individual & community member.

KCI is a school that develops leadership through participation in a variety of school and community activities.   The development of the whole student, both academically and socially, is the goal of the many caring adults who work with your child every day. A strong extracurricular and athletic program contributes to and fosters a positive and nurturing learning environment for all students. KCI has a strong emphasis on support programs to enhance academic success for all students through in-class and extra-curricular initiatives. 

TV & Film Broadcasting & Production Program

From grades 9 through 12 we offer courses where students gain expertise in all aspects of film and television production. In the junior grades students are introduced to communications technology software.  In grades 11 & 12, students work with state-of-the-art software and editing equipment to produce a daily television broadcast called "Switch On". This program is unique to Kipling and affords students the chance to work in an industry-standard digital broadcast studio. The program teaches students how to work under tight deadlines and create a program for broadcast everyday.
