Kipling Collegiate Institute's Mission Statement

Kipling Collegiate Institute (KCI) is a diverse, dynamic and growing school with a strong academic focus that is enhanced by our unique Science, Technology, Engineering & Math program. STEM is embedded across the curriculum. With 3 distinct SHSM programs, students can focus their interests towards meeting the needs of their future education.
 
At Kipling, we believe in nurturing the needs of the whole learner. We offer an excellent academic program integrated with modern technology, active community service and a wide range of clubs and activities. We are a small, multicultural community school prioritizing respect, dignity and understanding for each individual and the community as a whole.

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.
