A culture of giving has been at the heart of St. Mildred’s-Lightbourn School since its founding more than one hundred years ago. Through the collective commitment and generosity of our families, grandparents, staff, faculty, alumnae and friends, we have grown from two small schools to the largest independent girls’ school in the west GTA.
Every day, we see and feel the impact of our community’s generous support that has enabled us to provide innovative spaces and strengthen programs that would otherwise not have been possible: spaces such as the Fine Arts Wing, our sports field, Three Sisters Studio Theatre, Dining Hall, and double gymnasium, in addition to signature programs such as Global Studies, Professional Internship, Robotics & STEMR, Creative Arts, Athletics and Active Healthy Living, to name just a few. Our enriched programs, spaces and experiences make the SMLS education unique, and benefit every Millie.
While our tuition fees cover basic operating costs, as an independent school and a not-for-profit charitable organization, we rely on the financial generosity of our community to help us continually advance the educational experience for our girls.
Every gift to the Millie Fund, our annual giving campaign, helps enrich our world class programs, deepening our students’ knowledge, skills and comprehension through unparalleled opportunities, resources and experiences. Every Millie benefits.
